Former Republican official: ‘You can’t be a Christian if you don’t own a gun’Posted: October 26, 2012
A former Executive Committee member of San Diego’s Republican Party, who now heads the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, recently told Texas churchgoers that “you can’t be a Christian if you don’t own a gun.”
Speaking to the “Deliver Us From Evil” conference at the Upper Room Church in Keller, Texas earlier this week, Dr. Gary Cass explained that America had a “broken moral compass” because it regularly elected “politicians who could justify killing babies made in the image of God” and “justify redefining God’s institution of marriage.”
“By the way, I’ve got a whole sermon, you can’t be a Christian if you don’t own a gun,” he added. “That preaches in Texas, don’t it?”
“You have not just a right not bear arms, you have a duty. How can you protect yourself, your family or your neighbor if you don’t have a gun? If I’m supposed to love my neighbor and I can’t protect him, what good am I?”
Yup. That’s exactly what Jesus said, all of the time.
“I was driving in Virginia, and I saw a bumper sticker that said ‘I support the NRA’ and right beside it one that said ‘What would Jesus do?’ Not have a fucking gun!” — D.L. Hughley
