Comments on: The sniper’s evolution from villain to hero http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/10/snipers-battlefield-sinners-or-saviors/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: LoveYourEnemy http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/10/snipers-battlefield-sinners-or-saviors/#comment-1129019 Sun, 13 Mar 2016 12:59:16 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=46918#comment-1129019 It is still no badge of honor. Killing is immoral. Being an American soldier is simply being an ammoral human robot who kills on command of the U.S. president. Soldiers are denied the legal right to make their own moral decisions. It is totally disgusting how violence oriented our country has become. Whereas traditional Chrisitian morals taught that anger, hatred, and revenge are immoral, by using massive advertising and a mercenary army, we have now enshrined these senseless animal emotions as heroic. We need to resist evil with good, not with more evil. Shame on Hollywood for its highly unrealistic glorification of brutality and killing.

Not to mention the antisniper systems that damage your eye permanently.

But no one tell this to aspiring young guys.

Hollywood cast Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, in the movie American Sniper. Kyle killed at least 160 people with his rifle.
