Quote of the day 24th August 2023


According to the bible (Matthew, Chapter 26, verse 52) Jesus said this to his followers, ordering them not to use force when he was arrested. In context I do not believe this quote is an instruction to Christians to be pacifists in every circumstance, but it is clearly a warning that those who take up arms should understand that they may well be killed themselves.

Yesterday it appears likely that two of the most blood-soaked agents of the Kremlin have fallen victim to the same ruthless regime for which, until the recent mutiny, they had been hired killers.
