Vice President Joe Biden met with faith leaders this week and asked them to tell their congregations that passing gun control is the moral thing to do.
Here's what some of you had to say about it:
I'm a pastor and I say Biden is a dm wit and a danger to freedom. How bout that!
I agree......Hey Joe! Stay out of the Church. This is what Thomas Jefferson was referring to in his letter to the Banbury Baptist's in 1802 -- when he penned the phrase "separation of church and state" -- you know, the phrase the left likes to throw around. Government, stay out of the church!
I guess "separation of church and state" is a one way street.
Uncle Joey will be miffed to know that my church brings in people to teach church members the conceal carry class, and that the pastor and church leaders are all NRA members, and staunch 2nd Amendment supporters.
OK, Joe... where do you stand on abortion? same sex marriage? birth control?
Sorry, Joe, I'm not even saying I have opposing views on some of your positions, but you cannot pick and choose when you are going to be religious, and you cannot ignore the teachings of those religions... especially that which you espouse to believe... and then turn around and try to use them to influence the citizenry on another topic....
that's called hypocrisy.l
How about asking them to promote faith, responsibility, charity, good will towards all, morality, life, patriotism, the Constitution, free will, the Bible!
Remember separation of church and state, Joe?
I really don't understand how immigration reform is the #1 priority right now. It should have always been about fixing our economy and creating jobs, not regulating everything out of existence except for the government expansion you guys have created. Get out of OUR lives! Stop telling us what is best for our own safety. Stupid people do stupid things and die. It's called "evolution".
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances"
It's really a rational equation when you think about it. Someone goes crazy and shoots people + controversy + fear + debate + witness testimony + scare tactics + another shooting + fear + more controversy + arguing over laws + more scare tactics = Getting what you want because YOU are afraid of WE THE PEOPLE.
As a Roman Catholic, I do not support anything Biden is involved in. He advocates abortion which is a mortal sin and against the teachings of my church. The Catholic Church has no prohibition against gun ownership. If fact, the Church believes we all have the duty to protect our life and the lives of innocents. This idiot may call himself a Catholic but he is not.
I am a pastor and I always teach people to do the moral thing, and 99.9% of them do not agree with Biden. If he is going to ask pastors to do the moral thing, then shouldn't Biden have some idea of what the moral thing is? No sign of it yet that I can think of.
