from Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal:

"The bishops are leading hundreds of clergy and lay people in praying the Stations of the Cross, the traditional Holy Week devotion by Christians that recounts Christ's last days before his crucifixion.

"Miller and Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas were among the organizers of the service. Both have seen the deadly effects of gun violence in their dioceses ..."

There was no "gun violence" at The Crucixion, and Herod didn't need firearms to order the slaughter of the innocents (Matthew 2:13-18).

According to your logic we should outlaw crucifixions.

Of course, romans are the only ones who keep Jesus on the cross so I guess you're guilty, STILL.

LOL....

Unless you were a disciple or chemist in the employ of Emperor Wu Di (156-87 B.C.) and his successors, you probably didn't know enough about the basics of guns and rockets to have shown up at the crucifixion of Christ with explosive weaponry.

Swords, maces, bows and arrows would have sufficed, anyway.

Gun violence is a serious problem. People who intend to harm others are the cause of the problem.

Ever read "thou shalt do no murder" the correct translation as found in Rite I (BCP)?

Another rewrite to make crusades and inquisitions 'religious'.

LOL!

Remember, I work for an institution that makes sure the Bibles are accurate and am not bound by religious doctrine that is contrary to the teachings of Jesus.

You are clearly wrong.

Do not kill, do not be angry, do not take what is God's (unless you are roman)...

What are you? Nuts?

Is the BCP supposed to be some kind of Law, which if one is found to have committed an infraction against demands death and dismemberment?

Get real.

Apparently it carries no authority for Episcoplians such as yourself, Bishop Spong et al.

Unlike you I am not bound by religious doctrine that is contrary to the teachings of Jesus.

There is a vast difference between spirituality (what Jesus taught) and religion (what men think).

Grow a brain, maybe then you'll realize you have no heart.....

It is a book of Self-revelatory ritual, daily practice, acknowledgment in Spirit and guidance in Love and Light, Joe.

It is very purposefully Not a book of law or retribution.

Your mindset is obvious and very short-sighted. Do something about your shortcomings instead of revelling in your negativity.

Not to mention the ease with which those intent on violence can access guns.

You are right, George. There have to be limits.

It is a microcosm of various dilemmas just like the international problem of nuclear proliferation. Not everyone can be entrusted with ballistic missiles MIRVed with U-235.
