Because you have no right to live.
This is easily one of the X-Men strongest stories ever told.
Obviously, The X-Men has several popular storylines like Days of Future Past, The Dark Phoenix Saga, the Age of Apocalypse, Inferno, etc… and the list would go on and on, and each story is indeed prime examples of the strength in this title of Marvel Comics, but I think that this one, God Loves, Man Kills rises as something quite unique.
Since, here, the X-Men aren’t facing super-villains, alien conquerors, interdimensional demons, not even Sentinels, but the most dangerous kind of beings ever found on this planet…
Normal humans, without any kind of super-powers, but full of hatred, racism and intolerance…
…and using religion to validate their actions.
Reverend William Stryker, leader of the Stryker Crusade, a televangelism movement which focused its ministry against the mutants, manipulating the public opinion, but even worse, creating a secret paramilitary force with the “holy” mission of killing all mutants and their sympathizers, and they won’t stop at nothing…
…not even murdering innocent children, which they actually do, in the story!
It’s very likely that if you have watched the X-Men films, you are familiarized with the character of William Stryker, but as a member of US Army, well, the comics character has a military background, but I’m sure that showing a televangelist as an evil villain in a super-hero movie could be kind of controvertial, so they changed it, but here, in the original graphic novel, Stryker is indeed a televangelist justifying his unspeakable crimes with the excuse that he is just doing God’s work.
Imagine, Adolf Hitler meets Jimmy Swaggart.
And obviously, while the Stryker Crusade already started its extermination raids, it’s imperative to deal with The X-Men as soon as possible to ensure its success about “cleansing” the humanity.
MUTANT ROLL CALL
Human?! You dare call that thing… human?!?
In this graphic novel the X-Men team is: Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine (in his brown suit, yes!), Colossus, Nightcrawler and Kitty Pryde (that she was using the “Ariel” codename at that moment), along the Professor Charles Xavier and Illyana Rasputin (Colossus’ sister but before she’d get her “Magik” appearance, so she isn’t a member of the X-Men but just a student in Xavier’s School).
But the X-Men will get an unexpected ally in this story…
Since, they all are facing a common enemy, and both sides sweared to protect mutantkind.
Each side has used different methods to uphold that vow, but after abrupt developments in the cruel conflict, their ways begin to blend in worrisome outcomes.
The role of Kitty Pryde in this story has double impact, since she isn’t only a mutant, but she is Jew, so she knows about dealing with hatred without motives…
...and without limits.
God help us all.
