Church gun giveaway wrong a couple of ways

So a Baptist church in the American state of Kentucky is giving away guns as door prizes in hopes of attracting more converts to Jesus Christ.

Can someone tell me what’s wrong with that?

Over the years I have seen many inducements used by churches to bring people into their buildings. I have seen magicians, balloon and aeroplane rides. I have seen food used as attractant. And I have seen giveaways of all kinds from pens to iPods. But I have never heard or seen of guns used in this way.

American Idol sees role for chaplain on show

I admit to being an occasional fan of American Idol. The spring and summer season talent contest brings out both the best and the worst in entertainment. The audition shows are filled with the truly awful, unintentionally horrible and, through the skill of editing, some raw, uncut gems of singers who move on to the final 31 and then final 13.

It all comes down to one last show where the top of the group compete. Some are completely forgettable.

Others have gone on to respectable careers in the entertainment industry.

Maid of the Mist Legends of Niagara Falls

Last week I asked students to research the Maid of the Mist, and I was real surprised when they came back with three completely different stories with the same title.

maid of the mist

I wonder what the tour company tells folks? Probably the story about the distraught dad who follows his daughter over the falls...

Who has courage to follow Utah's homeless lead?

The American state of Utah may have found the solution to homelessness. It is hard to believe, but the evidence points to a simple, counter-intuitive idea that simply works.
 
Homelessness is a serious issue across North America. In the U.S. it is believed that 1.75 million people are on the street each day.

An explanation of church membership decline

If you want to start a discussion, ask why the number of people in the pews of the main line churches in Canada, and especially in the United Church, has declined precipitously since the 1960s.

 

The usual answer you will hear most often is that churches have moved away from God and have taken on a larger role in politics or made decisions which people disagree with.
