Brothers and priests, Fathers Joseph and Philip Breen, are leading their parishes, St. Edward Catholic Church and St. Ann Catholic Church to take a stand on a controversial issue.
"I said to myself, what is it I can do, and I feel very strongly about banning all assault weapons," Father Breen told Nashville's News 2. "We just hope that we keep these weapons from people that could do a lot of harm."
"This is something we need to do to get the assault weapons off of our streets and make everything a little bit safer," Father Breen said. "We're not taking away the ability or to make it illegal to have arms in your homes."
Churches please stick to your own business. If you want to help, start a program where people can bring in their guns to dispose them with no questions asked or something.

You know, I'm as close to the gun issue as anyone so wouldn't have immediately keyed on your main point, but you''re right. Since when were Church's the site of political petitions?? It wasn't just a few years ago that even making political based statements from Clergy was considered a bridge close to if not being too far.
Now? It's a place to outright run petition drives? The line between Church and State seems to be erased where convenient and built like the Berlin Wall where it isn't. Odd how that works.
