I thought a thread on great quotes would be good thing so here goes

"An excuse is the skin of a reason stuffed with a lie" Billy Sunday

"A government is a body  of people, Notably ungoverned." Shepherd Book (Firefly tv show episode 10 War Stories)

"A dump is like Disneyland..."

"Except there are no rides..."

"And it's full of garbage."

The desire/compulsion to control the lives and property of others is the ROOT of all evil. It is the root of all aggression.

I was watching Skip Heitzig's (Calvary Chapel of Albuquerque) series on the 10 commandments  on http://www.calvaryabq.org/ , specifically the ones from 9/23 and 9/30  2007 ( http://www.calvaryabq.org/teachings_search.asp?series=27 ) on the 6th commandment "Thou shalt not murder."  This was a very well done treatise on the commandments, by the way. (Links included in case anyone is interested.) He quoted:

Francis Schaefer "I am not a pacifist, because pacifism in this fallen world means that we desert people that deserve our greatest help."

Pacifism seems to imply the rejection of violence. But that ignores the difference between aggressive violence and defensive violence. Anyone can condemn aggression. Who condemns defensive acts? How can any normal defensive action be wrong? (Obviously, negligent and stupid acts can be wrong.)
