As with all of the tiny Tories, Coren's main concern is with using Omar Khadr as a way to punish the Khadr family. Obviously, Mr. Coren has missed this little teaching from his Messiah (not surprising really since it is in Matthew 5:38-40 and 43-48):
38"You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.'[a] 39But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well.Coren also missed this little gem from Matthew 18: 21-22:
43"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor[b] and hate your enemy.' 44But I tell you: Love your enemies[c] and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
21Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?"Ideas like "Love your enemy" and "Forgiveness" are too girly for Coren's religion, I guess. Coren is all about the "smiting" and the "sins of the fathers". I am not sure what religion that is, but it sure doesn't have anything to do with Jesus Christ. Recommend this Post
22Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
