Like abortion, gun control is sacrament to the left. Not that Feinstein has a 100% rating from NARAL or anything . . . Interesting too that a woman who is against prayer in public schools thinks it's okay for her to use it.
(Hey wait, shouldn't I sue them for violating the separation of church and state? Because as we all know anything that the church communicates to or through the state must be imposing their morality on me and therefore make them evil waaaaacist Nazis like Hitler with multiple exclamation points!!!!!!)
I'm reminded of the cafe scene between Dr. Jones and Belloq in The Raiders of the Lost Ark. Where Belloq boasts about the Ark being a radio transmitter to God. Jones then says, "You want to talk to God? Let's go see him together, I've got nothing better to do."
But I think this scene is even more appropriate:
|The Very Rev. Gary Hall opens up Sen. Feinstein's gun grab campaign with a prayer.|
To recycle a quote:
"There goes one who has called on gods he does not believe in. How will it be with him if they have really come?" - Farsight, The Last Battle by CS Lewis
Perhaps they realize that to press forward is almost certainly going to lead to them sending a whole lot of people to see God. I suppose it's appropriate for them to consider invoking a deity at this point. And it's actually kind of liberating.
If they want to invoke the name, the power, and might of my God for the purpose of taking my liberty, my property, and my life, then they invite and willingly welcome God's judgment upon themselves for the plans they have made, the way in which they are carried out, and the outcome. It seems to me that it would have gone better for them to have been ignorant of God than to try and acknowledge Him so as to frame up all the evil they have in store as simply being the logical execution of His will.
