Northeast State Proposes Bill That Restores Full Constitutional Rights To Church-Goers

August 27, 2019

Americans are shocked at what’s taking place
in our churches. Christians inside the religious community are under attack. Our government has passed laws that seem to
violate Christians’ rights. A country originally founded on Godly principles has attacked,
bullied, and vilified Christians. Unspeakable acts of bloodshed in houses of worship have
been the end result. But things are starting to change, at least
in some states. In one particular Northeastern state, some lawmakers seek to restore Christians’
rights inside the church. A proposed new law will guarantee their constitutional rights,
once again. From Fox 5 DC: Some Maryland lawmakers are seeking to allow
concealed handguns on church property. The deadly 2015 mass shooting during bible
study at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, and another tragic church shooting
in Texas last year have sparked a debate about whether or not people should be armed in places
of worship. Maryland State Del. Kathy Szeliga introduced legislation on Tuesday that would
allow it. The Parishioner Protection Act would allow
law-abiding members of a congregation to carry concealed handguns on church property if he
or she has written permission from the governing body of a church, assuming they are legal
owners of the firearm… The legislation would allow the approved person
to travel to and from church with their firearm if current laws for firearm transport are
followed. Houses of worship should be the safest places
in our country. That was true, once upon a time. People could flee to a church for sanctuary
from violence and injustice. They were assured that nobody would harm them in God’s house. Sadly, that’s not the case anymore. Secular
society mocks and ridicules people of faith. Our government neglects our First Amendment:
Freedom of Religion. Instead of protecting it, they allow outsiders to tear us down. That has led to shocking acts of violence
in churches. Sick, godless people have no problem invading houses of worship, intent
on killing. It has happened far too often in recent years. Things must change now. We all want to return to a time when shootings
never happened. But that might not happen. What we can do is make sure all Americans
are safe, no matter where they are. That means ensuring that our Second Amendment rights
are not violated. If someone enters a church to kill, at least a few worshipers will be
able to stop them. Some religious leaders are against the law.
They claim it counters the Bible’s teaching of “returning good for evil.” We need
to love our enemies. But what about loving our families and friends? The people who will
die, because of a hateful gunman? Shouldn’t we do everything in our power to protect them? It remains to be seen if this bill goes through
as it should. If it does, more states will follow.
