"A Gift Of Intervention"

by
Abby Zimet

In their God-given, gun-toting wisdom, the Louisiana House has voted to allow churchgoers to carry
concealed weapons in houses of worship to protect themselves against,
umm, whatever. Supporters say show them where it says in the Bible you
can't bring a gun to church to praise the Lord of peace.     

"I don't think God said it was OK to carry a gun in the
house
of the Lord. If you need to have a gun in church, you need to go to
another church." - Rep. Barbara Norton,
D-Shreveport, who opposes the bill.
