Churches should stand against evil, not go about handing out arms



May I comment on the report of a Lone Oak church giving away firearms supposedly to entice people to come to their church?

We might want to call to mind the quote often attributed to Edmund Burke, about 1770: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." There are many changes taking place supported and promoted by a few while many "good men" do nothing and wonder what happened.

A few instances called to my mind are: Restriction of prayer in schools, restricting display of The Ten Commandments, recognizing same-sex marriage, legalizing marijuana sale and use, liberal concealed-carry laws, maybe legal growing of hemp, selling alcohol on Sunday and Election Day, and now a church deliberately contributing to the number of firearms available in our community.

As a side comment, it is a sad day when our government's financial stability depends on revenue from harmful legal drugs or selling alcohol more days. We already suffer the consequences from cigarette use. Have we not learned how difficult it is to "un-ring" a bell?

It is said that the squeaky wheel gets oiled. Well, I am squeaking in opposition to the instances mentioned above. Most egregious or despicable is any church openly arming the public. Hopefully, many of the "good men" will do something to stop the triumph of evil - or at least slow it down.
