Okla. church: “Let’s NOT give away those guns as gifts”

You know, I have many friends… some of which are “Bowling Pins”. You know the type, namely if they live in the South – big white belly, tall RED NECK (Yeah, thought you would get it now).

Suffice to say, I have sent this post to all of them for an exclusive peek into what would happen if they ever pastored a church.

Take an entertaining examination inside Windsor Hills Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, Okla. And after the lightning round of nasty calls, upset parents and the occasional arousal from THE POLICE, the YOUTH GROUP giveaway of the AR-15 SEMI AUTOMATIC MACHINE GUN was canceled.

Got your attention now?

“I don’t want people thinking. ‘My goodness, we’re putting a weapon in the hand of somebody that doesn’t respect it who are then going to go out and kill,'” said Bob Ross, the youth pastor at Windsor Hills. “That’s not at all what we’re trying to do.”

Seriously, Pastor NRA Acolyte? Are you sure your [COUGH] uh, “Church” isn’t a rouse for something affectionately called a COMPOUND?!

I mean, what on earth made you think giving a zit-faced, snot-nosed, peer-pressured induced kid a lethal weapon would be good for teaching adult responsibilities? What, the world of ‘hunting for something and dragging it home’ not providing enough inspiration for sermons these days? Tired of having to play catch-up with the megachurches in town, so you need some um, “differentiation”?

But, latest addition to the “Haven’t got a friggin’ clue” department:

Ross said the gun, which had already been purchased for the event, will be given away at next year’s conference.

MEMO to A-L-L parents: Stay the H-E-double hockey sticks away from this place unless you need target practice for duck hunting season.
