The Kentucky Baptist Convention has a plan for drawing large numbers of “unchurched” men to their congregations — give away lots of guns.
That’s not my interpretation, it’s their stated goal.
In the words of spokesman Chuck McAlister the strategy is “outreach to rednecks,” and 1,000 people are expected to attend the next event. To lure the nonreligious into the fold, the churches are offering a handgun, shotgun, or long gun as door prizes. [...]
“The number of unchurched men who will show up will be in direct proportion to the number of guns you give away,” McAlister told The Courier-Journal. “And I can almost tell you the number of men who would show up based on the make or model. There is a huge interest among unchurched men in the state of Kentucky regarding guns and gun rights that is even more of a draw than a toaster or money would be.”
It’s what Jesus would want, right? Give away instruments of death to the flock.
