Re: Church Carry? POLL!
I voted it is up to the church.
Church is not a public institution; the building and grounds are owned privately by SOMEONE or SOME GROUP. I know; I tried to have ownership of our church put in the name of Jesus Christ, and the court house refused; it HAS to be in the name of some person or persons. In my case, we chose a governing board for the church, and they are all listed as 'owners'.
Having said that, it behooves us to abide by the wishes of the 'owners' of the property we are entering, be that a store, church, or private residence.
For my church, we absolutely welcome anyone who choses to cary into the service. As Pop's clearly pointed out, Christ COMMANDED us to be armed, even if we had to sell our CLOTHES to buy a weapon.
Now - if anyone really DID sell their clothes to buy a weapon, I would insist they borrow SOMETHING to wear to church so the pistol is not the ONLY thing they are wearing - - -
Christ told me to arm myself. If you want me disarmed - - Molon Labe.
