Gun-Toting Jesus Will Lead 'Mighty Army' During Second Coming

Jesus is coming-- and he'll be carrying a really big gun when he does.

That's what former U.S. Lieutenant General William G. "Jerry" Boykin thinks, according to a speech he gave on behalf of the conservative Family Research Council at the WallBuilders' Pro-Family Legislators Conference, in which he describes his vision of the Second Coming of Christ, that he believes will be led by a blood-stained, gun-toting Jesus armed to the teeth with an AR-15 assault rifle.

Right Wing Watch obtained audio of the event, in which Boykin claims that Jesus literally wants everyone to buy assault weapons, because "it's biblical." He also cited Jesus as the inspiration behind the Second Amendment. Boykin said:
The Lord is a warrior and in Revelation 19 it says when he comes back, he's coming back as what? A warrior. A might warrior leading a mighty army, riding a white horse with a blood-stained white robe ... I believe that blood on that robe is the blood of his enemies 'cause he's coming back as a warrior carrying a sword.

Scribbler Says: I'm not certain what to make of Boykin, but to each his own. I remember in the early 1970's, a pastor of some church or other in Texas found justification in the Bible for nuclear war. I didn't take him any more seriously than I take Gen. Boykin. However, from the responses, I can see many liberals enjoying painting all conservatives with a "Boykin" brush. Grow up, folks. Not many conservatives would agree with the man anymore that all liberals would agree with our Imperial President.
