This “evil gun” push is coming hard and from all sides.
Today at church one of of our prayers of the faithful was “that all people pray for our legislatures to pass more laws controlling the distribution of guns.
Then I got home and read out Catholic newspaper, The Compass, which contained two anti-gun, pro-editorials.
It seems that many church officials have not learned from history.
You didn't walk out?
This is exactly why membership in many Church’s is plummeting. They stopped paying attention to the Bible and and started reading the the Democrat Party Bible.
It looks like you and I need to find a new church.........
That wouldn’t be my church anymore, period.
Fact is back during the French Religious Wars when peace was finally made the Protestant faction, known as the Huguenots, refused to stack arms like the Catholic faction, known as De Guise ~
Like to note here that both factions were led, in part by people from a single wing of the Royal family ~ the BOURBON cadet branch so a lot of the stuff that happened was just typical royal blood letting leading up to the decision to find a new king ~ which, in fact, is what happened ~ they found a new king and he was the leader of the Protestants, and he became Henry IV upon formal conversion to Catholicism (which the law required of men who wanted to be king of France).
You can look up the Huguenots and find lots of interesting stuff, but it's what they did next that's most interesting ~ they refused to give up their firearms and took them home with them!
Why I know the Pope has a different view on firearms than the guys down the hierarchical ladder is he speaks often of religious freedom and tolerance AND he carves out areas in his speeches where he cranks in the history of the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries ~ particularly as they relate to the defensive wars against the Ottoman incursions into Europe.
He knows you gotta' keep your guns or you're not free ~ whether Catholic or Protestant.
Karl Marx missed that part by focusing on recent 19th century English industrialization, which is why the rest of the Catholic hierarchy is so out of touch with the fundamentals here.
If logic doesn't help solve their problem I'd bring in some hillbillies and go for a conversion ~ if not for yourself, at least your best parish priest. No sense he should go about trying to tend to the needs of Christian souls without packing heat ~ this is a violent world.
NOTE; Today a Protestant hispanic pastor was murdered along with members of his family in New Mexico. You just can't be too careful in these trying times.
Maybe you should think harder about that church then.
Time to shout "HELL NO!!!!"
Yes, I know ... it's rude to politicize Mass ...
So they bloody well shouldn't be doing it!
Communists are everywhere...even the churches...
