Rick Phillips: "On one extreme was the purported statement by Liberty University President Jerry Fallwell, Jr. that Christians should carry guns so as to kill Muslims."

I don't think that is what Jerry Falwell, Jr. said; wish he had gotten that right before putting it out there.

You're right, Jonathan.  Falwell's statement has been misquoted even within church circles (and here on SI).  What he said was that Liberty University, unlike so many other campuses (and other locations), allows and even encourages those for whom it is legal to carry weapons on campus.  His specific application was that "those Muslims" who attacked the location in San Bernardino would have been killed if they had tried the same thing at LU.
