Prince Of Peace? Christian Nationalists Push Jesus As Military Leader
“You might think Rodda is a bit biased given her role at MRFF, but author Frederick Clarkson, a Senior Research Analyst at Political Research Associates has a similar analysis.
‘This guy seems to be confused,’ Clarkson told Crooks and Liars. ‘He apparently can’t tell the difference between a deity and a soldier, and by the same standard, cannot separate his own role as a soldier from that of a religious leader. He does, however, seem to be seeking to be recruiting for a religious army — from the ranks of the U.S. armed forces.’”
Most Christians probably think of Jesus as the “Prince of Peace,” foretold in Isaiah 9:6, so the idea of “Jesus the military leader” might seem a bit odd.
