    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky pastor is inviting his flock to bring guns to church to celebrate the Fourth of July and the Second Amendment.
    New Bethel Church is welcoming "responsible handgun owners" to wear their firearms inside the church June 27, a Saturday. An ad says there will be a handgun raffle, patriotic music and information on gun safety.
    "We're just going to celebrate the upcoming theme of the birth of our nation," said pastor Ken Pagano. "And we're not ashamed to say that there was a strong belief in God and firearms — without that this country wouldn't be here."

    John Phillips is a dumbfuck

    John Phillips, an Arkansas pastor who was shot twice while leading a service at his former church in 1986, said a house of worship is no place for firearms.
    "A church is designated as a safe haven, it's a place of worship," said Phillips, who was shot by a church member's relative for an unknown reason and still has a bullet lodged in his spine. "It is unconscionable to me to think that a church would be a place that you would even want to bring a weapon."
    Phillips spoke out against a bill before the Arkansas General Assembly that would have permitted the carrying of guns in that state's churches. The bill failed in February.

    Does anyone else see the irony in that statement? He's right it should be a safe haven, but pyscho's and criminals know this. That's not going to stop them from taking guns there and killing people.

    Let's see...

    Pastor: "Weapons = bad!"
    Jesus: "He that has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one."

    Who wins?

    On that day, that will probably be the safest church in America.

    Some pastors twist that verse and say that Jesus was not being literal but was warning his disciples of imminent danger of Roman Soldiers (who showed up that night). :hsugh:

    Yeah, it's really pathetic how people will try to "interpret" away things they don't like.
