According to this 2001 edition of The Onion, God has clarified His Commandment: “Do not kill.” Here’s an excerpt:

“I don’t care how holy somebody claims to be,” God said. “If a person tells you it’s My will that they kill someone, they’re wrong. Got it? I don’t care what religion you are, or who you think your enemy is, here it is one more time: No killing, in My name or anyone else’s, ever again.”

In a related post at DI, I argued that it was time to repeal “Do not Kill.”
