As Western Journalism reported, leftist filmmaker Michael Moore faced significant backlash after sharing his belief that military snipers are “cowards” just as a new film documenting the exploits of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle broke multiple box office records. In response to the attack on the late Kyle and his fellow snipers, numerous Americans — including several celebrities — shared their disapproval on Twitter and in other forums.
Moore made a subsequent attempt to explain himself; however, a new Twitter post this past weekend proved his disdain for snipers has not dissipated.
Tomorrow’s Sunday School (1) What Would Jesus Do? Oh, I know what he’d do — hide on top of a roof and shoot people in the back!

As with his previous comment, this tweet was quickly followed by the responses of outraged detractors.
still upset about those pesky elite snipers? @MMFlint note: they’re not whining on twitter

Some pointed out the apparent hypocrisy of Moore’s position…
@MMFlint I just love when a non-believer uses Christ 2 make point.You won’t find a scripture Christ stated that gov shouldn’t protect people

…while others opted to opine on the orator’s obesity.
@Isla_78 he also needs a hug. But it would take several of us to complete the circle.

@MMFlint Take your own advice. What does Jesus think about gluttony?
