Popular Christian pacifist Shane Claiborne is planing an event titled “Jesus, Bombs, and Ice Cream” on the eve of the 10th anniversary of September 11th. This event is intended to raise “questions of violence and militarism.” One might expect them to focus on North Korea, Iran, Syria, or Burma. But as usual, they will focus on the US Military. Claiborne is partnering with Ben Cohen of “Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream.” Cohen is a prominent leftist who’s foundation financially supports, among others, the “Young Women United” group that actively promotes abortions for young women. This event will both be a stage to denounce the US Military, but also to promote Claiborne’s theology, which is redundant. Claiborne recently wrote about the upcoming event and explained some of his experiences as a “Human Shield” during the bombing of Baghdad.
