Why Shouldn't Christian Students Study Drone Warfare?
The July 2013 cover story of Sojournerís Magazine condemns Liberty University for including as part of its aeronautics program instruction regarding unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly referred to as drones.
Interesting how liberals right out of the box find this to be an outrage.
Yet they are often among the first to point out any other time that all other forms of knowledge and technology are morally neutral with good or evil instead determined how it is applied.
Sojourners would be foremost among the chorus wagging its finger at Liberty University if the school sheltered its students from developments in the theory of evolution that the conservative Baptist university did not believe in.
It may seem strange that an explicitly Christian institution would allow its student body to become proficient with the implements of destruction and mayhem.
However, it is probably not as shocking as the rogues gallery of assorted tyrants and revolutionary thugs supported over the years such as the Sandinistas, Fidel Castro, and Desmond Tutu by this magazine masquerading under a veneer of alleged Christianity.
