Herschel Smith asks: "Who Would Jesus Shoot?"
How very sophisticated of them to beat up guns as part of a worship service. David Codrea notes – tongue in check – how very hipster Gary Hall is. Of course, Washington National Cathedral doesn’t believe in any of the classical confessions of the faith (e.g., Westminster Confession of Faith, Heidelberg Catechism, Canons of Dort, etc.). They don’t believe in anything, and so they aren’t a real church. You may as well have a Potemkin Pastor for your weekly speaker under those circumstances. After all, it’s no more than a country club that meets once per week.

Another example of a pistol used like a magic wand.
That question implies that Jesus would not use violence or the threat of violence. It was reported that Jesus drove the moneychangers out of the temple. In doing so he must have used some kind of violence or threat thereof. So much for the "Who would Jesus shoot?" idea.

"Superfun, rock band church." H/T to Ann Barnhardt for that.
It's what drove us to Orthodoxy.
"Blessed be The Lord my God, Who prepares my hands for war, and my fingers for battle."
Gotta figure Judas Iscariot would probably make it on to that list, along with many of the Pharisees and Sadducees, members of the Sanhedrin, possibly Pontius Pilate....
There is, quite literally, an entire book of people he might decide to pop.
Kind of amusing question, "who would Jesus shoot," particularly considering that according to the Bible the proper question is "who WILL Jesus shoot?"
The question is not "Who Would Jesus Shoot?", but "Who Would Cornelius (Acts 10) Shoot?" Jesus is the Messiah, whose first advent involved next to no violence on His part. (The second advent, however, will be another matter.) Cornelius, however, was a Roman soldier who converted to Christianity. He likely remained a soldier after his conversion, and as a soldier, would be expected to kill people in war.
Christianity is not a pacifist religion, and in accordance with both Christian moral theology and Christian resistance theory, Christians may in fact use deadly force against others in certain circumstances. Hall and Smith are morons.
