Biden Wants Pastors, Rabbis & Nuns to Tell Their Flocks: More Gun Control Is Moral Thing to Do
The Blaze / The Associated Press ^ | May 7, 2013 | Billy Hallowell

Posted on 05/07/2013 5:39:28 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Vice President Joe Biden has a commandment for pastors, rabbis and nuns: He wants them to tell their flocks that enacting gun control is the moral thing to do. But another vote may have to wait until Congress wraps up work on an immigration overhaul.

Biden met for two-and-a-half hours Monday with more than a dozen leaders from various faith communities – Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh, to name a few. Both Biden and the faith leaders encouraged each other not to give up on what has been an arduous and thus far fruitless effort by Biden and President Barack Obama to pass new gun laws in the wake of December’s schoolhouse shooting in Connecticut....

tighter groups, no yanking off target with the trigger finger, no wobbly wrists, shoot until the threat is stopped, never give up your weapon...

gun control is important.

How about killing babies in the womb, for any reason or no reason, through all nine months of gestation? Is that a moral thing to do?

This is a perfect example of why we have what democrats misinterpret at a "separation of church and state"

As Jefferson explained to the Danbury Baptists, churches were to be protected from undue government influence.

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,”

Mr. Vice-President, just be sure to prove your authority to those theologians.

Can you walk on water?

Do that and they will not only take notes when you speak, they will show up with stone tablets.

But, if not, then not.

No thanks, Mr. Biden. We already know your state of moral clarity, Mr. Biden, from your pro-abortion views. Recommend you read your Bible and attend a church where they teach from it.

That’s funny. I want Priests and Nuns to tell Joe that killing babies is immoral and he should stop it.

I can tell you now that if my priest told me to get rid of my guns I would tell him to tell me about the Lord, not to stick his nose in my business about an inanimate object sitting in my home harming no one.

Those who turn their weapons into plow shares will plow for those who don’t.

I got an broadcast email from Frankin Graham saying the White House called him for support on gun control. He said he answered that there is violence because the hearts of men are evil.

Mr. “Kill the Baby” Biden, wants us to go easy on the criminals.

He won’t lift a finger to protect the most innocent, but will do all that is possible to empower punks, thugs, drug dealers, rapists, thieves, and murderers.

“Bill Donohue comments on a White House meeting on gun control:

Yesterday, Vice President Joe Biden implored about 20 religious leaders to press the moral issues behind gun control; it lasted two-and-a-half hours. There were representatives from all major U.S. religions, some liberal and some conservative. News stories only mentioned one Catholic at the meeting, Sr. Marjorie Clark.

Sr. Clark is one of seven “nuns on the bus” who campaigned for President Obama last fall; only two nuns made the entire trip. She belongs to NETWORK, a dissident group of elderly nuns who are known for never siding with the pro-life community. Indeed, this group is so radical that its founder, Sr. Marjorie Tuite, was threatened with expulsion from her order after she signed a pro-abortion petition in the 1980s.”

The words Joe Biden and moral should never be used in the same sentence. It then becomes an oxymoron with Joe providing the moron part.

“Separation of Church and state” is only for issues that benefit dems.

Pretty much like all the laws these days. If a conservative breaks the law it’s a terrible crime and he goes to jail after being tried and convicted by the media, then the leftwing legal system. If a liberal breaks the law, we just don’t bother enforcing it. (millions of illegal immigrants, Sandy Berger, the Clintons, New Black Panthers, ... )

Dems worry about what furthers their power - like disarming law biding citizens... so only criminals and government officials have guns.

Biden wants everyone dependent and grateful: without him 'we'd all be in chains'... You know his routine.
