Kentucky Baptists Trade Guns for Converts

"We're goin on down to the Gun Sale at the Church!" YEE HAW!

http://www.courier-journal.com/artic...hed-men-Christ

In an effort its spokesman has described as “outreach to rednecks,” the Kentucky Baptist Convention is leading “Second Amendment Celebrations,” where churches around the state give away guns as door prizes to lure in nonbelievers in hopes of converting them to Christ.

As many as 1,000 people are expected at the next one, on Thursday at Lone Oak Baptist Church in Paducah, where they will be given a free steak dinner and the chance to win one of 25 handguns, long guns and shotguns.

The goal is to “point people to Christ,” the church says in a flier. Chuck McAlister, an ex-pastor, master storyteller and former Outdoor Channel hunting show host who presides at the events as the Kentucky Baptist Convention’s team leader for evangelism, said 1,678 men made “professions of faith” at about 50 such events last year, most of them in Kentucky.

In Louisville, he said, more than 500 people showed up on a snowy January day for a gun giveaway at Highview Baptist Church, and 61 made decisions to seek salvation.

McAlister’s boss, Paul Chitwood, the Kentucky Baptist Convention’s executive director, said such results speak for themselves. “It’s been very effective,” he said in an interview.

But other clergy question what guns and gun rights have to do with with sharing the Gospel.

“How ironic to use guns to lure men in to hear a message about Jesus, who said, ‘Put away the sword,’ ” said the Rev. Joe Phelps, pastor of Louisville’s independent Highland Baptist Church.

“Giveaways for God” seem wrong, he said. “Can you picture Jesus giving away guns, or toasters or raffle tickets? ... He gave away bread once, but that was as a sign, not a sales pitch.”

Nancy Jo Kemper, pastor of New Union Church in Versailles and the former director of the Kentucky Council of Churches, said: “Churches should not be encouraging people in their communities to arm themselves against their neighbors, but to love their neighbors, as instructed by Jesus.”

“Second Amendment Celebrations” in church make a “travesty” of that message, she said, adding, “How terrible it would be if one of those guns given away at a church were to cause the death of an innocent victim.”

It depends if the rifling is any good. Here is more information on your rifle.

How long will your shots be on average?

Come on. It's funny nobody but maybe my 7-8 closest friends do I ever talk about it unless challenged. It think there is 25-50 coyotes within 2 miles of me. And only a neighbor every mile or two.

It's gonna be a fairly long shot. There's lots of cover near by, in the open closest I've seen them near the house is a good 300-400 yards
