Wis. Bishops Want Concealed Weapons Out Of Church

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s Catholic bishops are urging parishioners to keep their concealed weapons out of church.

The state’s five bishops issued a statement Monday saying they won’t mandate churches prohibit concealed weapons but want parishioners not to carry them into churches as a sign of reverence.

They want local pastors to consider that Catholic teachings stress non-violent conflict resolution and Catholic churches have a long tradition of serving as sanctuaries for people fleeing violence as they decide whether to allow concealed weapons or ban them.

    And no beer instead of wine at communion.

    First keep pedophiles out, then we’ll talk about not bringing guns.

    Typical liberal traitors. Jesus loves you, but he loves you more if you support the 2nd Amendment. These idolaters hate America and betray our rights.

      blah blah blah, it always comes back to liberals with you….give it a break & grow up

      Jesus may love me but I love my gun more.

  • Patrick PatPat Lilja

    Again, I ask…why do we need to have guns everywhere?

    I’d say pedophiles in church are a greater danger than law-abiding licensed gun owners.
