God gave his archangels weapons, because even the Almighty knew you don't fight evil with tolerance and understanding.
The bible is clear - evil exists.
Evil wants us to believe it's not really there. It wants us to believe that the things we label as evil are actually a matter of perspective.
Evil wants us to believe this so that it can continue to prey on society, unchallenged.
We see through this deception, and we stand ready.
