seperation of church and state, makes perfect sense. Besides the churches can still not allow conceled weapons. You need a permit to carry one anyway so its not like some hillabilly can jus walk around willy nilly with conceled guns

Total disregard for God. This is preposterous.
I know very person, especially the first 12 disciples, who went to some very horrible, tortured deaths,( some were skinned alive, some were boiled, then pulled out at the last moments, so they would not die), and never raised a hand to there executioners.
The so called "Christian church", is a farce, and taking, the masses of people who bought into the lies, straight into the abyss.

A gun permit? As in having to get government permission to defend ones self and family? Why does this sound problematic?

OH NO more fuel for the anti-gun nut jobs. Sigh oh well I did not know I was breaking the law when I had a gun in the pocket, and a AK-47 in the trunk.

Guns in church???

What for? The sermon otherwise goes too long? The soloist gets put out of her misery?

It's bad enough we have so many guns on the streets. Why do we need them in a house of worship?

Church is where you go for light, not for heat!

Actually in ark if the gun barrel is over 10 inches you can carry it anywhere anytime concealed or openly. Also you may carry when upon a journey. There is really no need for a concealed carry permit.

On the other hand, Rev Wright should pack some heat as well.

If you or your friends ever show up one Sunday, he might be glad he did.

Well, then we should do it too.

Since when are you holding militant Muslims up as role models? And when did they become our friends? Or your friends?

I've been away from the computer some these days. Did I miss a memo?
