Death By Government

The 20th century the first universally secular century is the most violent century in recorded human history.

Most of the violence has been committed by "governments."

Most of the violence committed by "governments" has been against innocent, non-combatant civilians.

Most of the violence committed by "governments" against innocent, non-combatant civilians has been against "their own" citizens, not external "enemies."

The statistics to prove these assertions have been assembled by Prof. R.J. Rummel. The first place to turn to find out about the man and his research is Freedom Nest's R.J. Rummel Page.

NEW! Prof. Rummel has now put much of his work on his own page:

The Soviet Government's Holocaust

Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark headed an international team of jurists and scholars and convicted the United States of War Crimes in the "Gulf War." Their findings shock the conscience.

What Does God Really Care About?

Many people claim to be on God's Side. What does God really stand for? What does God stand against? If you believe the Bible tells us anything at all about God, you must admit that God hates violence.

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. {12} So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. {13} And God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Genesis 6:11-13

If you don't believe the account of Noah's Flood is literal, you must still acknowledge the point of the story: God hates violence

Yet you won't hear a word about violence in most churches. You seldom hear practical advice on how to follow the Prince of Peace in a world filled with vengeance. When the government declares a "national emergency," or "martial law," "good Christians" are the first to don the brownshirts and kill their brothers and sisters in Christ when the government declares them to be "enemies of the State."

"Christian patriots" support the moral legitimacy of organized murder. This is incredible. They need to read their Bibles and experience a "paradigm shift." Christians must never kill for the Empire.
