Kentucky Churches Giving Away Guns to Help People Discover Jesus
Nation of Change; March 4, 2014
“The Kentucky Baptist Convention wants to ‘point people to Christ’ by giving away guns at Second Amendment Celebrations hosted across the state.
“In the words of spokesman Chuck McAlister the strategy is “outreach to rednecks,” and 1,000 people are expected to attend the next event. To lure the nonreligious into the fold, the churches are offering a handgun, shotgun, or long gun as door prizes. Winners attend church for a photo-op with their new gun, but they must pass a background check before collecting their prize…”
I’m pro-NRA and all, and I would love to visit Kentucky some day, but this is an inadvisable combination. Bourbon or baseball bats would seem like more appropriate bribes to become a (Southern Baptist) Christian.
I’d certainly advise Muslims or gay newlyweds against visiting such areas. They might be safer around the Westboro church folks that simply yell at them that they’re going to hell.
