Guns

bible-and-gunJesus may have come to bring a sword but most fundamentalists prefer the cold steel of a Colt .45. Throw a rock into any crowd of fundamentalists (if you dare!) and you’ll hit a gun aficionado with surprising frequency.

It’s not quite clear why God and Guns go together in fundy circles. But with things waxing worse and worse and the great whore of Babylon, the beast, and the false prophet predicted to show up any time to do some creative redecorating, it makes good sense to hedge your bets in case things get really hairy before the rapture. Even if nothing happens, you still get to play with things that make loud noises and can wipe out your neighborhood if needed. It’s a win-win.

Blessed are the Peacemakers.

  1. “Blesses are the Peacemakers” HAHAHA! That’s funny. And I’m a fundamentalist Baptist! It’s true though, and a bit sad. I have some guns but they’re farm guns, to keep the ravens and open range cattle off the property. I drew it once when someone was driving down our back road at night, shooting their guns off into the bushes, but just to protect my wife, who as with me-never shot, just being ready.

  2. Sorry for the late comment. My dad (a fundy preacher) used to gripe that too many preachers carried a piece when they were supposed to be preaching peace.

  3. Ask J. Frank Norris how having a gun in his desk at his church office worked out for him.

    My former fundy CEO is a proud gun man who likens his right to bear arms with justification by faith.

    I’m not anti-gun, just don’t raise guns to the level of the great doctrines of the New Testament or the Mosaic law.

    (P.S. I know, I’m 5 1/2 years after the post. It’s been a blast going through all the old posts and seeing how things have developed)
