There was a similar thread about church shootings a couple weeks ago:
The "good and sufficient" issue came up with some discussion as well.

My understanding is that a slap was more along the lines of an insult: we're supposed to bear up under those.

His normal procedure is to give us employment in order to answer my prayer that my family's needs be met. By the same token I submit that God is likely to use me to protect my family (including myself, as I will need to be at work tomorrow to feed them). He has seen fit to open my eyes to risks and has provided me with the resources to meet them should need be. I don't think it prudent (Scripturally) to limit God to using a cop or a lightning bolt to stop a bad guy.
Were I single and was assured that I was called to do so, I could imagine putting myself at great risk for His glory (think Jim Elliot and the Auca Indians - look it up if you're curious). But not without a fax, when I am the likely means by which He will keep my family fed and clothed.

An insult is not worth fighting over -- killing or being killed over. No Christian should respond to a simple evil with deadly force -- unless it is their job -- e.g. an LEO.
Additionally, we should not do anything else to escalate the situation into a deadly encounter -- such as hitting back. Nothing here involves a threat to life. Jesus is just giving good tactical advice for situations, which do not call for the use of deadly force.
Turn the other cheek, walk away w/o escalating the situation is the right thing to do -- without regard to any religious belief.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

I don't need to attend church so bad as to have to go through a metal detector before I can sit down.

Oh that's so funny but true.

They look at me with puzzle in their eye and I tell them that that sign tells them nobody in this building can protect themselves so this is the bet place to rob. The look on their face changes at that point.
I mean why do cowards shoot up church's and "No Gun" malls; because it's safe for them.

Back to original OP. The clause is CYA "lawyerese" to allow overide of everything else. If the Prosecuting Attorney wants to burn you, he uses the clause to do so. If he doesn't want to burn you, he uses the clause to let you go. It all depends on how his convictions record is going and how close he is to re-election or re-appointment. It is just allows the prosecutor an open career choice for your case. Don't get Law and Justice confused, one doesn't really have a whole lot to do with the other.

The Church is the PEOPLE. The building is where the church MEETS.

Buildings do not have ears, but the PEOPLE inside the buildings do. Buildings do not speak, but people do.
Act 5:11 And great fear came over the whole church, and over all who heard of these things.
Act 8:3 But Saul began ravaging the church, entering house after house, and dragging off men and women, he would put them in prison.
Act 11:22 The news about them reached the ears of the church at Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas off to Antioch.
Act 11:26 and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. And for an entire year they met with the church and taught considerable numbers; and the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.
Act 12:1 Now about that time Herod the king laid hands on some who belonged to the church in order to mistreat them.
Act 12:5 So Peter was kept in the prison, but prayer for him was being made fervently by the church to God.
Act 14:27 When they had arrived and gathered the church together, they began to report all things that God had done with them and how He had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles.
Rom 16:5 also greet the church that is in their house. Greet Epaenetus, my beloved, who is the first convert to Christ from Asia.
There are many more references that can show that the church is made up of the believers, and is not the location or the building in which the church meets.
