What Would Jesus' Foreign Policy Be? (WWJFPB?)

"We need to fight THEM over there, before we have to fight them over here."

"We spend all this money on other countries, why don't we put America first for a change."

"Why should we have to abide by all these treaties (Kyoto) to do something about global warming? What about OTHER countries? Why should we cost our businesses so much and forfeit our sovereignty in the bargain? Nobody tell America what do do!"

"These bleeding-heart liberals want to give our money away and some of these people just want to live on off the dole. Welfare makes 'em lazy. If people are poor, it's their own fault, they should get a job and work to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps."

"Why don't we just nuke 'em (Iran) and have it over with. If we did, others would think twice before messing with us!"
-Common comments from the Right

"You have heard that it was said,

An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.
I say to you, do not resist an evildoer.
If anyone strikes you on the right cheek,
turn the other also;
and if anyone wants to sue you and take your coat,
give your cloak as well;
and if anyone forces you to go one mile,
go also the second mile.
Give to everyone who begs from you,
and do not refuse anyone who wants to borrow from you."
-Jesus (in Matthew 5:38-42)

I hope the Master's Word gives you food for thought.
Me ka pule,
Pirate Ted
