Pastor Get Medieval

A Peterhead pastor has been found guilty of attacking a car with a baseball bat. He was provoked by a gang of youths into eventually smashing the windscreen while they were still in the car. It is a very rare occassion when I'm tempted to quote from the Bible. How about I quote from Pulp Fiction instead?
Ezekiel 25:17.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.
The pastor has been forced to resign his position at the Peterhead Pentecostal Christian Zion Tabernacle Church.
*Ahem* Sounds like a perfectly sensible organisation to me.

So, does anyone think that the baseball ball weilding badass pastor is representative of all Christians? Anyone think this demonstrates that Christianity is an inherently violent religion?
