As Brady Fan Jacqueline Kelly Darnell writes: I find unconscionable that anyone would take a weapon into a church or synagogue…a place where one goes for peace and meditation. Hopefully the gun owners in Wisconsin will respect the bishop’s position…better yet if there was an amendment enacted to prohibit guns in places of worship.
But when you live in a mental vacuum, you ignore that there are critters out there. that ignore the sanctity of church. This just happened down here in beautiful Fort Lauderdale: 2 women robbed in church parking lot.
Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki is quoted saying: The Catholic Church has a long tradition of sanctuary, allowing people feeling violence to take refuge in church buildings as a place of safety and protection.
Yo Archie, you are not supposed to offer a sanctuary for criminals to attack your flock. It kinda screws up with the collection plate’s take, y’know?
