America, How do you reason with those who bless AR-15s as Rods of God?

A story out of Pennsylvania, apparently AR-!5s can be tools for Christ.

Who knew!

How about that, the Prince of peace to be represented with an AR-15 as the "Rod of Iron/God" that will be used to smash & rule over all others.



“And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father,” the King James translation reads. Other translations refer to an “iron scepter” instead of “rod of iron.”

biblehub.com...




“This will be a big thing for us. 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,” said Tim Elder.

“This rod of iron is the AR-15, in today’s terms,” Elder claimed.

Now the Moonies are involved so there's that, but still this lunacy.

These are responsible gun owners?

Why aren't they in a rubber room some where on heavy meds?

So America how do you plan on reasoning with people who hold such beliefs?

How does one have an advanced civilized society when 12th century madness such as this still exists in it's population?

Oh bonus question, just who do they plan on ruling over with their Magical AR-15s.
I guess if you don't believe their warped view of reality it will be you.

Not sure. Ask these guys...

Deputies guarding schools in Broward County will carry rifles, including AR-15s, under an order issued Wednesday by Broward Sheriff Scott Israel. Israel said the order applies only to deputies qualified on rifles and has the support of Broward schools Superintendent Robert Runcie after the Parkland school shooting. “This morning I implemented a practice in the Broward Sheriff’s Office and spoke to Mr. Runcie who was fully supportive of my decision that our deputies who are qualified and trained would be carrying rifles on school grounds from this point forward,” Israel said at a news conference at BSO headquarters in Fort Lauderdale. “It will be done safely,” he said. “Only deputies who are trained and qualified will carry those rifles. But we need to be able to defeat any threat that comes onto campus.” Sheriff’s deputies only patrol schools in cities without their own police departments, but there is a broader effort by police across the county to secure more immediate access to rifles.

Oh I'm not trolling I'm deadly serious.

All these people with their Talking sessions, Listening sessions today.
All absolutely useless because you can not reason with a fanatic.

Blessing rifles as tools or weapons of your god, that is full on fanatic freak right there.

This isn't rational behavior for someone living in the 21st century!

You want people who think AR-15s are 'rods of God' put in a rubber room?
Maybe you should read the bible to understand a little better.

I'd say you have some issues, far greater than any religious guy who loves his gun.

Focus on mental health but have no restrictions on people with mental health having access to guns, e.g background checks? Character references ?

I could ask the same about people with seething hatred and logic debilitating fear of an entirely inanimate, nonsentient object.

The same way we deal with any other nutty loon that doesn't use common sense, doesn't understand what they're so horribly scared of, and lacks any degree of logic or foresight into what they are upset over: empty platitudes, placations, and a healthy dose of good old patronization until they quietly wander away and leave the adults to discuss the important stuff.

Great, thought provoking thread, by the way.
Good stuff, man.

Good, so you agree the problem is the people not the implement.

Since responsible gun owners who purchased their weapons legally are the two most recent mass murderers how about psychological exams for gun owners.

That may be a place to start since all they seem capable of is illogical argument.

Not scared of rifles, concerned with the nuts that worship them.

Ah, so rubber rooms and psychological examinations for gun owners. My my, you really are quite the little oppressor.
You're proving the point gun owners make about a proposed process to define a list of people who are 'mentally ill' in order to refuse them their right to gun ownership. In your dictatorial world, it would be everyone who wanted a gun and, of course, we already know the left's game is about total gun bans, not mental health restrictions, or AR15's.

Rubber rooms for people who have their AR-15s blessed as tools of god & psych-exams as part of the purchase requirements / background check.

Now as I said the last two massacres were carried out by legal gun owners, so apparently we never know when they're gonna snap.

So a regular exam schedule might be needed.

Now of course all this could be avoided if gun owners would see reason & agree to a shotgun for home defense, a bolt action or limited internal mag for sport & hunting rifles that's all you need.

No more hidden hand cannons, a light weight taser can drop the biggest intruder / attacker.

Of course maybe people just want the Ak's & AR's so they can be this guy.

Matthew 26
52 "Put your sword back in its place," Jesus said to him, "for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.


I'm guessing these people aren't very well versed on the teachings of Jesus and instead get all of their information from a cherry-picking pastor.

Would you rather people not worship their ar-15?

That's a slippery slope. I'm pretty sure the only reason ones in my area don't animate themselves and cause destruction is because I always say 18 hail Mary's and 7 our father's in the name of all mighty AR (Praise be his name) before sleep.....

You should do the same. It'll help your insanity. I promise.
