You think right. But, check out the original post on the Pre-Christian Michael Bird here. It contains the immortal line:
From now I am only a soldier of Christ and I carry a NA27 instead of an M-60 - Amen!
As for me I've just bought my weapon of choice, a UBS4 and I'm learning how to use it...is that safety on?! How about another Word-Weaponry allusion in the tradition of Paul:
Ah Jerusalem, Jerusalem!
Is it for nothing our chapels were christened
with Hebrew names? The Book rusts
in the empty pulpits above empty
pews, but the Word ticks inside
remorselessly as the bomb that is timed soon to go off.
