An op-ed by a leading Christian conservative in the National Review is getting a great deal of attention for its ludicrous claim that Jesus wants you to have guns. David French, who was a Senior Counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) — a top Christian legal group that changed its name to the Alliance Defending Freedom around the time it started getting bad press for a lawyer who was ultimately convicted on charges related to child pornography with her own daughter — writes “The Biblical and Natural Right of Self-Defense,” to make the cherry-picked and biblical-misinterpreted verse claim.
“Simply put, self defense is a biblical and natural right of man,” French argues, adding, “There is nothing about the cross that requires me to allow someone to kill my family — or anyone else for that matter. Indeed, I have a moral imperative to come to the aid of those in distress.”
