Bring your Guns to Church?

Theres a phrase in England; “It can only happen in America”, which I thnk is quite suitable here.

A pastor in America has told his congregation to bring guns to church in what he said was an effort to promote safe gun ownership.

Yes he has asked for the guns to be unloaded but how is anyone meant to know for sure? How can a hall full of people with guns feel like a safe place to worship?

Bearing in mind that the shooting of George Tiller in a church happened not to long ago, I really cant understand the way of thinking that says that this is OK.

It would be nice to see the Church in America trying to promote peace rather then talking up peoples so called right to have a gun by their sides.

    I think you bring up a good point about the role of the church. Should we really be encouraging people to carry weapons? I just wrote about this myself on my blog ( http://www.2mites.com ) and I invite you to comment on it.
