Jesus: The First Suicide Bomber?
From The Australian-OP/ED:
Award-winning writer Richard Flanagan in his new novel, The Unknown Terrorist, dedicated to David Hicks: JESUS ... had no choice when confronted with the failure of love but to seek his own death. In his understanding that love was not enough, in his acceptance of the necessity of the sacrifice of his own life to enable the future of those around him, Jesus is history's first, but not last, example of a suicide bomber.
I guess they don't set the award bar too high, do they? For an excellent analysis of this absurdity, go to It's A Matter Of Opinion!
Isn't it funny how folks don't hesitate to attack Christianity? My guess is that they do because they know that they aren't likely to get DECAPITATED by a follower of Christ!
