Pastor Invites People to Bring Guns to Church
Thursday, June 04, 2009

Print ShareThisLOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Kentucky pastor is inviting people to bring their guns to church to celebrate the Fourth of July and the Second Amendment.

New Bethel Church is welcoming "responsible handgun owners" to wear their firearms inside the church on June 27, a Saturday.

An ad says there will be a handgun raffle, patriotic music and information on gun safety.

Church pastor Ken Pagano says guns must be unloaded and private security will check visitors. He says recent church shootings make it necessary to promote safe gun ownership.

Marian McClure Taylor is executive director of the Kentucky Council of Churches.

She says churches work to prevent violent harm and promote peace, but most "allow for arms to be taken up under certain conditions."

what good would an unloaded gun do in the event of a church shooting. I get the fact that he's trying to make a point, but if the gun owners are responsible... why not allow loaded guns?

308, I can't argue with that. A good plan just fell a little short.

It's too late for me, save yourself.
