Christ-like Soldiers?

Since this is the Sunday before the Fourth of July, many churches held their patriotic services today. On the way to church this morning I passed by another church and saw this sign:

The American soldier and Jesus Christ. One gives his life for your freedom. The other for your soul.

I can’t think of anything more blasphemous than mentioning Jesus Christ, the Lord, the Son of God, the Prince of Peace in the same breath as a U.S. soldier who bombs, maims, kills, and then dies for a lie.
