Episcopal diocese of Arkansas opposes campus carry

Thanks to Dr. Lisa Corrigan of the University of Arkansas for sharing a resolution of the Episcopal Diocese of Arkansas in opposition to the legislation requiring colleges to allow concealed weapons on campus by anyone older than 25 with the proper certificate (or anyone of any age with no additional training if the NRA has its way in making a bad bill worse.)

The resolution speaks for itself.

I am reminded of  Republican politician who demanded to know my "church home." I regret not saying it was no business of his. But I confessed to holding membership in a Presbyterian Church, by transfer of letter from my boyhood Methodist congregation.

Oh, that explains it, he sneered. Only certain religions really count in Arkansas, was the suggestion.

Episcopalians went to hell, too, when they let women preach.
