For the record, the Biblical reference to turning the other cheek involved personal interaction, not national policy.

In fact, any notion of nationalizing that passage would be absolutely unscriptural. This doesn't mean the Bible preaches war, war, war--but rather that it doesn't preach international peace, peace, peace.

Let the passage stand for what it stands. Don't add to it.

In light of the fallout over former Rep. Ron Paul's asinine statements about murdered Navy SEAL Chris Kyle yesterday, Senator Rand Paul told Breitbart the following:

“Chris Kyle was a hero like all Americans who don the uniform to defend our country. Our prayers are with his family during this tragic time.”

Ron Paul doubled down on his statements from Twitter yesterday on his Facebook page:

As a veteran, I certainly recognize that this weekend's violence and killing of Chris Kyle were a tragic and sad event. My condolences...
