I'd never thought I would ever say this, but....

I've been going to church for the past seven months.

But don't worry. I'm not going to turn into some kooky-ass Jebus freak who hates gays, wants to end abortion and wants to destroy Muslims. As a matter of fact, I'm quite the opposite and so is my church, which is indeed Christian. As a matter of fact, my pastor just happens to be a board member of Planned Parenthood.

Like many churches, we have a weekly session during service where we discuss our joys and concerns. Last Sunday, I asked to pray for the victims of the shooting disaster in San Bernadino. Usually, I like to ask for prayers for whenever there's a shooting disaster or other concern needed in our world.

Well, after I talked about the shootings, a middle-aged man across the aisle stood up and was trying to hold back tears. He was a retired 35-year Army vet and served in Vietnam. He told the congregation that he was sickened about the bigotry that our country was now standing for and the militarization of Christianity, such as when we attacked Iraq. He touched on the fact that Mike Huckabee even named his book "God, Guns, Grits and Gravy". But then, he talked about Jerry Falwell, Jr. telling his 14,000 students at Liberty University to go out and buy guns. It's a shame when somebody uses God to promote right-winged BS, and yet it was he who wrote on a slab of stone for Moses to proclaim on Mt. Sinai "Thou Shalt Not Kill".

But yes, it's true. The son of the late - but not great - Jerry Falwell actually told the students of the college his Dad started in 1971 to carry guns. He also stated that he disagrees with the president in regards to gun control. In a speech from last week, Junior - who looked and acted like he was drunk - said that if the victims in California had concealed carry permits, then they could "end those Muslims before they went out killing."

Wow. Another Jebus freak wannabe who thinks that he's going to Heaven because he hates Muslims. Gee, when did he become God? When did it become OK to judge others just because they were burkas? True, the savages on 9/11 were Muslim, but guess what? The shooter at the Planned Parenthood was a Christian! Terrorism doesn't know race or religion.

I think the best answer to stop the shootings is to tell the NRA to simply fuck off. As long as we have powerful, pro-gun politicians who want more guns into society, well, that's what we're gonna get. I hope that as long as we vote Democrat, we will keep fending off the gun violence ravaging this country. It's time to create a sensible solution without infringing on the 2nd Amendment.

As for Little Jerry, remember, his father was a homophobic asshole who created the Moral Majority, an organization that in the 70s and 80s trumped their false religious values onto most of America. They also played a role in Reagan getting elected and look at what that brought us: the wealthy getting more wealthy and the middle class becoming close to nonexistent. The fact that they also fought a fake war on porn made them look even more dumb. In their mind, looking at pussy is a one-way ticket to H-E-double-hockey sticks. But hey! Guns are OK! Good thing Hustler published that parody with Falwell talking about his "first time" to Dewar's.

Remember: the statement "the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun" doesn't work.
