“All it takes is one good man with a gun….’ – The ‘Jesus Wants Me Packing This I Know’ Edition – ‘Kentucky Churches Giving Away Guns To Help People Discover Jesus’

‘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’.

“The number of unchurched men who will show up will be in direct proportion to the number of guns you give away,” McAlister told The Courier-Journal. “And I can almost tell you the number of men who would show up based on the make or model. There is a huge interest among unchurched men in the state of Kentucky regarding guns and gun rights that is even more of a draw than a toaster or money would be.”

‘At one event in February, McAlister reportedly took the stage surrounded by guns and discussed politics, saying gun violence is “not the gun, it’s the man behind the gun,” and “criminals don’t care about a bunch of rules.”

‘God did not come up for the first 30 minutes. After polling the audience about who had a gun, McAlister said, “We’ve got an army right here!”

    I saw this in Facebook and could not believe it; I thought it was a hoax. This is reaching to the bottom of the barrel.

    I tell my husband and children that when a successful TV show debuts and it’s clean fun, you can always tell when it is going downhill – they begin adding sex and violence in hopes of getting ratings. This sounds like what this Kentucky church is doing. A very sad ending indeed.

    • It will probably never come to pass but the silence from the ‘main stream’ churches on something like this is deafening.
      The very basic concept of religion is to feed the soul or spirit not shove a gun in someone’s hands.

        Churches are silent on guns for three main reasons: #1 Republican anti-abortionists lead church-goers #2 Southern culture adores their guns and #3 Abortion is more important to them than guns. It’s as simple as that.

  6. If those who come to be a member of a church did so because they received a free gun, they can never become the good converts who shall honour the right God and get to know the son of that God who preached shalom, i.e. peace.
