Baptist church cancels youth conference's gun giveaway

“I don’t want people thinking ‘My goodness, we’re putting a weapon in the hand of somebody that doesn’t respect it who are then going to go out and kill,'” said Ross. “That’s not at all what we’re trying to do.”

Ross said the conference isn’t all about guns, but rather about teens finding faith.

Hey fellas? While you're at it, why not try to entice them with a bag of crack or heroin? I mean, it's all about faith, right? Sheesh.

Um, I don't think that "respect" has much to do with what, I at least, find wrong with this scenario. Since when is it ever a good idea to try to instill faith in people by arming them? Did I miss a line in their logic?

I don't think you missed a line in their logic; I think *they* did. Nuts, isn't it?
