God And Guns



We have preachers’ wives with so little faith in God that they need a gun for protection.

The Second Amendment trumps the Ten Commandments.

Preachers used to give you a new Bible or a trip to camp if you brought more visitors to the revival and now some give you a gun.

Senators and missionaries say a gun is a birthright, but health care isn’t. I am guessing these guys use the legislator’s health care plan even though their church, The New Creation Church, believes in faith healing.

Preachers are saying that you can’t really be saved unless you have a gun.

Former church camp managers are now saying the rich deserve protection and the poor and elderly do not.

I can’t buy Sudafed, but I can buy a gun even if I have just left a mental institution.

I don’t, but people can’t smoke pot, but you can buy as much ammo as you want with no questions asked.

Teachers won’t be guiding children to safe places, they will first be having a shoot-out with a mental patient with a 100-round clip.

Pharmacists are praised and defended as heroes for emptying guns into unconscious teenagers.

They are closing mental treatment centers, but legislators want tax-free holidays for guns.

You can’t get married if you are gay, but they have to assume that anyone they see with gun is a law-abiding member of the NRA.

What happens when a law-abiding citizen with a gun sees another person with a gun? Do they assume the other guy is a law-abiding citizen or do they shoot first and ask questions later?

Who will protect me from the guys with the guns because no one can tell me how you know which ones are the good guys and which aren’t the good guys?

I understand hunters having guns and I even understand some people think you need a gun in your home, but now the senator/missionary believes everyone over 21 should have a gun in their car.

It is not possible to have too many guns.

I am not afraid of the military or police, but I am afraid of people who think guns are the only answer. I do not under any condition want anyone claiming to have Christ as the center of their life to suggest I need a gun for protection.

I don’t want any of them claiming that the rich deserve more and every one else needs to pray more.

If you believe in prayer, now is the time, because these people do not intend to let Obama have his second term.

  1. I would certainly have to agree with the statement “If you believe in prayer now is the time”. But in reguards to your comment that you dont want somone who claims to have Christ as the center of their lives to suggest that you need a gun for protection. Christ is our protector but he also gave us common sence and there are a few people in the world who dont like to use theirs. Im not saying that people should be allowed to walk around with holsters like in western movies but we all have the right to defend ourselves should we come under attack. That’s like being at home and the news says a hurricane is approaching and to evacuate but you stay because Christ is the center of your life and he’s going to protect you. Sounds a bit ridulous hon? Well so does your statement and all the innocent lives being lossed to gun violence. Christ is the center of my life, I also plan on owning a gun. I cant even begin to phantom what one has to do with the other. My closing statement to you would be if your ever in a life or death situation may Christ be with you.

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
