"A Gift Of Intervention"

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
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.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
