Teragram: Thank you. You prove *my* point. An eye for an eye is an argument in favor of proportionality. That is, lethal force is only justified when confronted with lethal force. Shooting someone who is non-violently stealing your stereo would be an eye for a single strand of hair, and not what the word of Lord prescribes.

Thank you as well for the references. Many seem to forget Luke, Chapter 6 - especially in this political climate.
