    Again, you err. These are not within the teachings of Christ.

    Looks like a violent belief-meme of your own. The facts do not support it. The whole 'go forth and multiply' thing was in the old testament, not the new, although a few passages in Ecclesiastes actually support abortion, or at least miscarriage, the 'untimely birth', as being preferable to a life of sin.

    Using the philosophy of Christ to gain followers would demand not adherence to a particular ruler, but to Christ himself. Very different from the postulation of yours.
