Gentlemen, the correct term is certainly either “warvangelicals” or “bombvangelicals.”

Nuke ’Em and God Will Bless You

Many armchair Christian warriors, Christian Coalition moralists, Religious Right warvangelicals, Reich-wing Christian nationalists, theocon Values Voters, imperial Christians, Red-State Christian fascists, and God and country Christian bumpkins might object, not to the existence of a Nuclear Ethics and Nuclear Warfare session that appeals to Scripture to soothe the consciences of religious people, but to the cancellation of such a program because it “takes God out of government” and other nonsense. David French, senior counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice, dismissed complaints about the program as what he called “another attempt to cleanse American history of its religious realities.” “It’s about cleansing religion from the public square and building a completely secular society and military,” added French.

God is judging America, not because we are turning our backs on Israel, but because we are a decadent, insolent, greedy, blood-thirsty nation that winks at the shedding of innocent blood in the womb, while we “high-five” the killing of innocent children in other parts of the world. We have rejected God. Our works are “continuously evil in His sight” and our hands are stained with innocent blood.

I want you to know right up front that I am not a pacifist.
I believe in a strong military, and that national defense is one of the Constitutional responsibilities of our government. When a “terrorist” blows up a group of people He should be swiftly put to death.
I believe in a strong national defense and that our obligation is to America first.
But I do not believe in continuous wars, especially the politically-correct ones.

ONWARD WARVANGELICAL SOLDIERS
The term ‘Warvangelical’ is a fairly new one. Not yet in the dictionary and not yet overused, it does define a certain segment of our population. Not exactly a small one either. It doesn’t even have to be used in a derogatory manner. It’s basically just a matter of fact and not a new one at that.

“Peter. put away your sword...”
“we have Predator drones for that.”
