Jaye Ramsey Sutter is trying out bumper stickers
I particularly enjoyed: "Indict them all and let a jury sort it out"
. It has everything: history, religion, snark.
There's nothing better than an allusion to the words of one of the earliest believers in "You must destroy the village to save it", the Abbé Arnaud-Amaury of Citeaux. During the Albigensian Crusade
, at Béziers he declared "Caedite eos! Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius"
[or "Tuez-les tous, Dieu reconnaîtra les siens."
, depending on the language he used] which can be translated as "Kill them all! God will sort them out".
