Now, who is the classic Christian soldier and politician?
Cromwell - dictator of Britain from 1653-58
Christian generals and politicians have a long history of involvement in the murder of civilians.
Oliver Cromwell was the typical Christian soldier-politician.
"During his lifetime, some tracts painted him as a hypocrite motivated by power — for example, The Machiavilian Cromwell and The Juglers Discovered. " (Oliver Cromwell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )
Oliver Cromwell and other parliamentary leaders have been "presented as... sexual deviants, even paedophiles." (X * The Later Seventeenth Century -- Steggle et al. 85 (1): 513 ... )
Oliver Cromwell's grandfather was Sir henry Cromwell whose second wife died after a long and unpleasant illness.
"Her death was attributed by local folk to witchcraft.
"An elderly couple from Warboys and their daughter were accused and in circumstances of extreme barbarity were tortured, condemned and executed." (Queens' College Record 2001 - Cromwell Family)

Cromwell sent some of the Irish to the West Indies.
Sir William Petty wrote in his The Political Anatomy of Ireland (1672) (Politics.ie • View topic - Oliver Cromwell was a Pimp and Child ...):
"Widows and orphans... were kidnapped and transported by the slave trading merchants of Bristol..."
From the site Politics.ie • View topic - Oliver Cromwell was a Pimp and Child ..., we learn:
"Cromwell had been informed that Englishmen in the West Indies had 'only Negresses and Maroon women to solace them,' as Cromwell's son Henry put it.
"Cromwell's puritan sensibilities did not hinder him from jumping to supply the colonists lust for fresh young white flesh - and making a good profit to boot.
"A Captain John Vernon, for example, was employed by the Commissioners for Ireland to kidnap 250 Irish girls around twelve years of age and transport them to Barbados.
"Once in Barbados they were raped by their English 'masters' and, later, forced to breed with Black men - as the English officers found the Irish girls 'cold' and they needed to be whipped into submission, where 'half caste' girls, who had been trained to their perversions from childhood, were much more to the English taste.
"It's estimated that tens of thousands of Irish children, both boys and girls, were kidnapped to supply this vile trade."
In 1661, Cromwell's corpse was removed from Westminster Abbey and then dangled from a gibbet at Tyburn. His head was displayed on a spike for 20 years.
