Odd anti-gun sign

At a church.

    Pretty far down the comment list, someone finally cites Joel 3:10, a favorite of mine, where the beating goes the other way. In the ancient world (right up until the Bessemer process), metal was expensive, and adaptive re-use was common. The same share could serve as both sword and plow, repeatedly. Smiths (not “black” until the iron age) stayed busy. 3D printers will bring this back, if the grid holds up.

    After all, would you rather be shot, or plowed under?

    “Plow” and “bow” have the same Indo-European root. Because (I think) they are curved.

    They have the Constitutional Right to be Idiots under the 1st, 9th and 10th Amendments. But if they still have Locks on the door, a Security System and use the Local Police, then they are Hypocrites who Sanction Violence against the Innocent. They just “hired out” their Safety, is all.

    If a Nut Job shows up one Sunday and starts to shoot, will they tell the SWAT Team to leave their M-4s in the Van, or set up an Anvil?

    “Those that hammer their swords into plows… will plow for those that do not!”

    And please be sure to ask the malls and universities in this country how well signs stop criminals from bringing guns onto their property.

    Clever announcement for a safe killing field. The trolls will know exactly were to go to get their murderous jollies.

    I’d change my membership to another church. That church doesn’t trust their own members. Besides Christ told us to sell our clothes and purchase a sword.

    Although I haven’t made it explicit, I’ve implied to my pastor that the church is on notice. If they ever post one of those “target rich environment” signs, I will look for another church. My loyalty will be to Christ, not my local church, particularly if they use Isaiah 2:4. I quickly looked it up and its quite clear it is a prophecy of what will happen “in the last days,” and not a command telling us what we must do.

    And, yeah, there’s that Joel 3:10 quote, too.

  6. Ellen Says:

    “I come not to bring peace, but to bring a sword” (Gospel of Matthew 10:34)

  7. BobG Says:

    I think someone ought to drag a large plowshare in through the front door, just to see how they react.

  8. RWC Says:

    Rather hypocritical coming from an institution that has an ‘assault door.’

  9. Lyle Says:

    I do not find it odd, considering how many Progressive/socialist churches there are out there. You figure Reverend Wright’s church has a “Guns Welcome” sign on the door?

  10. nk Says:

    Christ used “sword” metaphorically for conflict, both in Ellen’s reference and in “he who lives by the sword will die by the sword”.

    I am as much an hoplophile, of all kinds of weapons but most of all edged ones, as you gunslingers, and I have no problem with a church being a haven from violence.

  11. Gnarly Sheen Says:

    “…and I have no problem with a church being a haven from violence.”

    Signs do not make places safe havens from violence any more than prohibition made everyone stop drinking.

    “Christ told us to sell our clothes and purchase a sword.”

    MAJ, next time Scout Sunday rolls around, I may just drop in on one of your services. Communion’s got to be a real hoot. That is some serious doctrinal purity, there.

  13. Mycroft Says:

    Markofafreeman is correct. The Isaiah verse is talking about the end times when the entire world turns to God. Nations will beat their swords into plowshares and not study war no more.
    I’m pretty sure that I would have noticed if that had come to pass recently.

    Reminds me why I stopped going to church, along with the rest of the Western World. No offense to those of you who do. I’m sure it’s more fun than sleeping in and waking up to make an enormous breakfast at my leisure.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
