Re: “House approves guns in church

I seriously doubt we will lose members. I really can't imagine somebody saying that they are not going to a church because they can't carry their gun, but if there really is a person who feels that way then that is their problem not mine. Back in the early church (when things like baptism actually meant something) people had to give up careers like being actors or judges or soldiers because those positions made them servants of the Empire. Jesus said his disciples have to take up their cross, not their swords; they have to die, not kill others. The cross was an instrument of execution. If Jesus were alive today he would say take up your electric chair or your gas chamber and follow me. Taking up the cross means that disciples have to die to Imperial ways of thinking which include things like violence and taking things by force and power and revenge. If somebody wants to carry their gun to church then it reveals that - to quote the Psalms - they trust more in swords and chariots than in the Lord our God.

Re: “House approves guns in church

We will not be allowing anybody to carry a gun into our church. That's why we call it a Sanctuary.

Re: “Bible study approved by House

I'm a minister and I am against this proposed bill. Then again, I'm one of those liberal preachers who believes in evolution and denies that the Bible is literally true. Most people here in Arkansas would call me a heretic. Go ahead. I'm used to it. I MIGHT support a high school World Religions course, but not an exclusive Bible course. But what really pissed me off is when I heard on NPR (that's right, I'm one of THOSE people) that this nut-job sponsor said it's not about indoctrination. BS. Of course it's about indoctrination. What else would it be about? That's the kind of greasy tactic that gives Christians a bad name. Stop all this dissimulation and just say what you really want. And what you really want is something that has never really existed here in America, but only in your fantasy America.
