Dwight McKissic, the Southern Baptist Convention’s resident race-baiter and morally repugnant ethnic idolater has a problem with sound logic, thoughtful reasoning, and biblical theology. To McKissic, a man who says he believes that abortions should remain legal under certain circumstances, wants to compare the moral repugnance of the Democrat party’s love affair with murder in the womb on a mass scale to the conservatives who believe that the legal right to bear arms and to self-defense is a God-given right.
In a recent tweet, McKissic said that the “moral rot of the Republican Party is evidenced by its opposition to background checks for gun purchases and refusing to outlaw AR-15s” which he said only serves the purpose of mass killings.
Not only is this absurd on its face, but McKissic’s reasoning also stems from an absolutely deficient and sub-biblical epistemology and worldview. McKissic, and people like him, really need to think this through. The Democrat party has had their chance to outlaw guns in the areas they control, and when they do—like in Chicago—mass killing only increases.
Do you know why after decades of cold war and tensions the United States hasn’t openly engaged in a hot war with Russia? Think about that. The idea of peace is held both theologically and practically by the concept of mutually assured destruction. The purpose of the peacekeeper is to keep the peace by meeting force with equal force. Stripping guns from law-abiding citizens only assures that those law-breakers who intend to kill others and perpetrate mass shootings will not be met with equal force.
Further, McKissic is foolish to think that background checks aren’t supported by conservatives. I can’t think of any place in the United States where one can purchase a gun legally without a background check. That’s just stupid and not even worth addressing.
Do you really want to live in a world governed by people who think like Dwight McKissic? Imagine the entire United States being just like Chicago, or Detroit, or Baltimore—or any major U.S. city under Democratic control. That’s what would happen if Dwight McKissic got his way.
