Some Churches Don’t Read The Law

Don’t ever let anyone get away with telling you no one wants to ban your guns.

We have Episcopal Church in Michigan passes gun resolution as evidence to the contrary. The resolution says:

RESOLVED: that the 180th Convention of the Diocese of Michigan, in response to the impact on Michigan communities of deaths from gun violence, join with other faith communities calling for the following steps to be taken by Federal and State lawmakers:

1. Requiring and enforcing universal background checks on all gun sales;
2. A clear ban on all future sales of military-style semi-automatic weapons, high-capacity ammunition magazines and high-impact ammunition (i.e. ammunition more deadly than ordinarily used in hunting);
3. Making gun trafficking a Federal crime;…

The Episcopal Church supports the U.S. Constitution’s protections of the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms; but, we also stand for public policies to ban gun violence and assault weapons.

You have to marvel at the naiveté and/or stupid exhibited here.

You can’t support the Second Amendment then make the demands for background checks anymore than you could require background checks for sales of First Amendment materials. One would guess they support the First Amendment and would claim protection if gun owners were to demand they be punished for hate speech because of their vocal support of restrictions to gun ownership.  (Joe Huffman)

You should go and read everything Joe has to say on the matter (at the link).

Funny, the big brouhaha Dallas, Texas churches getting involved in politics, and their mayor trying to subpoena what was being said from the pulpit,  and (of course) no action being taken publicly about mosques being involved in politics.

Or the above.

Must be a crisis of conscience for many church members who happen to own evil firearms, though.

  1. high-impact ammunition

    I’m so tired of using “low impact ammunition” in my 308. Where do you buy this stuff?

  2. It was also the Episcopalians who invited the moslems into the National Cathedral, where the iman prayed openly for the death of Christians and Jews. According to islamic “theology” the cathedral is now a muslim worship site – -not a Christian church. The stupidity knows no bounds.

  3. The memory of my last pastor holding a would-be mugger at gun point for the police makes me smile. Father even did his own reloads.

  4. Episcopalians, are also known as Church of England in other parts of the world. No suprise they wish to have unarmed parishioners. More reason to rely on big government and big religion. They do not read history or laws. If they did they would remember when the protestant movement was being born in Europe and how many persons lost their lives. They would also remember that it was kept alive in some areas by members that were willing to fight the government and other religions that outlawed them.
