These things ought not to be!

In 2010, my state and others passed laws that permit gun owners to take their weapons into bars and other places that serve alcohol provided they do not drink. (And just why is it people go to bars?) I wonder why some pastors in Virginia and elsewhere are unable to say, “In the name of God, Jack Daniels, Virginia Gentleman, Samuel Adams, and a Glock 19 should not be seen together in a bar; Friends, martinis and guns do not mix.” Even the NRA would agree with that. If the shepherds of Jesus’ flock are unable to make such an innocuous statement, I wonder if they have anything else of consequence to say to their people.—America and Its Guns: A Theological Expose, page 211 (emphasis original)
