Bring your gun to church day: the pride of American Christians

“God and guns were part of the foundation of this country,” Mr. Pagano, 49, said Wednesday in the small brick Assembly of God church, where a large wooden cross hung over the altar and two American flags jutted from side walls. “I don’t see any contradiction in this. Not every Christian denomination is pacifist.”

The bring-your-gun-to-church day, which will include a $1 raffle of a handgun, firearms safety lessons and a picnic, is another sign that the gun culture in the United States is thriving despite, or perhaps because of, President Obama’s election in November.

I wish, wish, wish this were a joke.

  1. Do they have discussions about what Jesus would pack? I’m thinking he’s not really a Glock kind of guy. More a Beretta. But then, my knowledge of Christianity is really too unsophisticated to allow an accurate guess.

    I guess I imagine him with a knife, not a gun. More…personal.
