Religion and guns odd mix for Palin

  • Follow Letters

This week in Ohio I heard Sarah Palin make the statement that Obama wants to take "religion and guns" away from Americans.

Putting these two subjects in one sentence makes us a little "Talibanish," don't you think?

Am I the only one this bothers? I want to ask Mrs. Palin: "If Jesus were here, would he have a gun?"

Ms. Smith, IF Jesus were

Ms. Smith,

IF Jesus were here, WE/HE WOULD NOT NEED A GUN. The gun of Christ's day was a sword. IF you have a Bible, read about Jesus' sending out 70 disciples, without a sword, where they did not have to carry a sword [gun] as per Luke 22:35-36 because he watched over them YET AS HE PREPARED FOR HIS ABSENCE AFTER THE CRUCIFICTION, he told his 12 disciples "he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, AND BUY ONE" [Luke 22:36] to which the disciples replied, "Lord, here are 2 swords".

SO YEA, UNTIL JESUS RETURNS AND CLEANS HOUSE, we should ALL CARRY A GUN.

They didn't have guns in

They didn't have guns in Jesus day.
Peter was with Jesus and he had a sword, which he swung at the Roman and cut off his ear. Remember! It's in the Bible.

I don't think you can tell

I don't think you can tell someone's race solely by what they post unless they tell you in the post. The premise of the letter and it's conclusion were moronic.

religion and guns don't make

religion and guns don't make someone Talibanish, because someone could be a progressive Christian and own a gun -- kind of like some of the members of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. However, being anti-choice and homophobic does make someone Talibanish. So, Ms. Sharon Smith is on the wrong subject.

As an independent observer,

As an independent observer, look like I lost two fans. I guess, like Palin, the novety has worn off. As a proud independent who will speak with a strong voice, Have a blessed day. Some of us don't need to be a stick in the mud. Independently strong and growing stronger everyday.

Ya know, short of a

Ya know, short of a constitutional amendment, you're not gonna take guns away from us. If you're upset that your AK got taken, tough, you don't need one. There's no push, nor could there be to force any church to marry gays. What on God's earth are you worried about? If you think it's a sin, as I do, then let GOD handle it, it's not your business in a Constitutionally run country. You folks in here are so eager to mind everyone else's business, which is one thing that led me to abandon the Republican party. Your party advocates torture, it advocates attacking countries for personal vendettas while leaving the Taliban and Al Qaeda to rebuild and your candidate sat for 40 minutes in the bi-partisan meeting with Bush and Paulson and DIDN'T SAY ONE WORD! Then all he offered was MORE deregulation, and of course a Blue Ribbon Panel...now that'll save the country.

Hey folks do you think the

Hey folks do you think the guns we can get would actually protect us if the government sent the military against us? Now, I'm for the right to own a weapon, and carry it with a license, but it's for personal protection. The concept of guns to protect us from the technology that the military has, and we can't get, is pretty much ludicrous. Get lives, folks, you ignorance is really showing.

Niko, if it was stupid people

Niko, if it was stupid people listening to Palin in Ohio, you obviously was one of them as you seem to know what she said. Palin insecure? Joke of the day. It's you leftist loons that are insecure and Palin drives you nuts with her security in being an intelligent, beautiful woman who lives her Faith who most American identify with.
