The Church of Guns

fructose_boostKen Pagano, Pastor of New Bethel Church of Louisville, KY has great new plans for the upcoming Fourth of July services:  He’s encouraging all of his parishoners to pack some heat.

“We’re just going to celebrate the upcoming theme of the birth of our nation,” said pastor Ken Pagano. “And we’re not ashamed to say that there was a strong belief in God and firearms — without that this country wouldn’t be here.”

Does anybody remember when church was to be a place of worship?  For me as a child, church was a time of reflection on the life of Christ, a study on the will of God The Father and a notation to reflect the Holy Spirit as the service moved your soul.

Pastor Pagano seems to have figured out how to ignore God this upcoming Fourth of July.  He’s bringing his own new and improved Holy Trinity: Smith & Wesson and The Holy NRA.

I wonder if Pastor Pagano feels he’s bringing around his own Protestant version of “Vatican II“, and I’m suspecting he’ll do it with a semi-automatic.  He can always preach that the Holy NRA moved his soul to go out, and preach the bullets to every the whole creation!

He says he’s not ashamed of what he’s doing, but I think he should be.

Go in Peace; and don’t shoot your eye out!
