From the New Orleans Times-Picayune:
BATON ROUGE — The [Louisiana] Senate revived legislation Tuesday that would allow congregants to carry concealed weapons on church property as part of a security force.
Thank goodness actual church leaders in Louisiana think this is a terrible idea, and the law won’t force churches to tolerate firearms on their property. Still, laws don’t just pop up out of nowhere. Somebody, somewhere, must have lobbied state legislators to put this bill on the order paper. And in a state in which 90% of the population professes Christianity and only 2% belong to other faiths, odds are it was Christians doing this lobbying.
When Christians are claiming the right to defend their own explicitly Christian communities with lethal force, in direct contravention of the explicit instructions of Jesus, we have a massive cultural problem.
