Oh, Gun Culture. I Will Never Understand You.

[Content Note: Guns; mixing of guns and religion.]

"Kentucky Churches Giving Away Guns to Help People Discover Jesus." Welp.
The Kentucky Baptist Church has found the strategy "very effective" for its own purposes, but it's drawn criticism from other Baptists. "How ironic to use guns to lure men in to hear a message about Jesus, who said, 'Put away the sword,'" Rev. Joe Phelps, pastor of Louisville's independent Highland Baptist Church, said according to Courier-Journal. "Can you picture Jesus giving away guns, or toasters, or raffle tickets? …He gave away bread once, but that was as a sign, not a sales pitch."
