In Celebration of July 4 and our rights as Americans, New Bethel Church will be hosting an OPEN CELEBRATION CHURCH service for all who support 1st and 2nd Amendment rights. It will be held on Saturday June 27th, the weekend before July 4th. It will begin at 5PM and picnic food will be served. We are asking responsible handgun owners to attend this service openly wearing their sidearm. This will be a Cold Range Carry meaning handguns must be unloaded and in a secure holster.
Area gun store/firing range owners will be invited to attend and tell about their services. There will be patriotic music and short presentation concerning responsible gun ownership and 2nd Amendment rights.
There will also be a raffle to win a handgun. All that is asked is that you bring a sidearm, a friend who has a sidearm and a canned good for local food bank. (emphasis mine)
In the last paragraph notice how church members are asked to bring canned food for a local charity only after they are asked to bring their guns and bring friends with guns.
Un-freakin'-believable, and - to put it nicely - especially clueless in light of the Dr. Tiller's assassination, no matter your level of agreement (or lack thereof) of his profession.
And Jesus wept.
