A reader made the points from my article on The Christian Case For War into a fun quiz! C’mon kids, a little test you’re sure to love!
Quiz: How Much Do You Support the War?
Read the statements and answer by putting down 2 for Agree, 1 Somewhat Agree, 0 Disagree.
1. America’s role in the world has been overwhelmingly positive.
2. The United States is not an empire.
3. When the United States government has acted abroad, it has been to stop evil regimes like the Nazis and Communists and to help people.
4. We should give the President the benefit of the doubt in regards to war because he knows a lot more about what is going on than we do.
5. Yes, there is a large troop and base presence abroad, but this “empire” is good! After all, the U.S. doesn’t collect tribute like the empires of old. In fact, the empire is costing the U.S. quite a bit. Resources are flowing out of our country to the rest of the world not the other way around.
6. In modern high-tech warfare, weapons pinpoint the bad guys (“precision bombing”) and avoid hurting innocents (“collateral damage”).
7. The liberal media is against this war, so there must be something good about it.
8. George W. Bush seems to sincerely be a Christian so we can trust him on these matters.
9. George W. Bush was called by the Lord to be our leader in this post-9/11 world.
10. The Muslims hate America and Israel because they are fanatically and unreasonably anti-American and anti-Semitic.
11. The war on Iraq is a just war of pre-emptive self-defense against worldwide jihad.
12. Bush is being realistic in his response to terrorism (“Take the battle to the enemy.”) as opposed to the naïve liberal “just be nice” response.
13. The world is different from the world of the Founders of the U.S. The oceans don’t buffer us anymore. Non-intervention is no longer an option. Non-involvement doesn’t seem a realistic option. They’re over here, planning more 9/11s.
14. This is spiritual warfare between Christians and the Lord’s Chosen People, the Jews, against the aggressive followers of the false religion Islam. (“Resist the devil.”) Mohammad was no Gandhi! He was a ruthless military leader.
