I offer no defense of right-wing American Christians, who often equate guns and faith. But I would defend Jesus here - I highly doubt he would would approve of how his message has been prostituted by evangelicals. For my part, I wouldn't want an object like that anywhere near me.

You're forgetting that the savior speaks directly to them.

Lately, I have been following hermes2015's rule:

Sure he does - just ask them.

Good old Jesus, he is such a customisable deity, people have been using him to justify what they want to do forever.
He's been approving one or more sides of wars, anointing kings approving popes, he's a busy fellow.
Why can't he drop by now and then, maybe just do a fly by through the solar system every fifty years.
The faith thing is just too convenient for the spruikers, who lack any actual reliable proof.
Gods shouldn't expect us to trust the words of men, men are not trustworthy.
