Weekend Weird: Guns for Jesus, Satan’s Toaster, Bigfoot Lawsuit, and More
Jesus is coming. Get your guns.
In the wake of yet another devastating school shooting, the Sanctuary Church and Rod of Iron Ministries in Pennsylvania is planning to hold a ceremony next week during which Reverend Sean Moon will bless guns owned by members of the congregation, WNEP/ABC Newswatch 16 reported.
“This will be a big thing for us,” a member of the church said. “It’s a new stage for us because it incorporates the rod of iron, as it is in Revelations. Revelations talks about the returning Christ ruling with the rod of iron.”
The rod of iron, he elaborates in the interview, is the AR-15.
The wrathful God of the Old Testament definitely would have loved the modern American attitude, that we all have the inalienable right to weapons designed for the singular purpose of mowing down large swaths of humanity as quickly as possible. But it baffles me why the good lord and savior Jesus Christ or any of his flock would need secular armaments.
