Good Friday Protest by Heeding God’s Call

Heeding God’s Call is going to be out in front of Delia’s gun shop on Good Friday. It’s been long believed at Jesus suffered on the cross for our sins, and that event had nothing to say about weapons and everything to say about our sins. But that’s not the real story, you see. Once you understand, a Good Friday vigil makes perfect sense. Jesus really suffered a violent death at the hands of a swordsman, and the Romans couldn’t trace it because the big evil gladius lobby had Pilate cut the funds for tracing, which wouldn’t have mattered because it was likely purchased at a gladius show without a background check anyway. The serial number was filed off too. So you see the connection to Delia’s. It has nothing to do with attention whoring for the cameras using Good Friday as bait. No. Nothing at all.

    And coincidentally we are commemorating the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising too!
    Talk about your Gun Free Experiment confirming what happens to people without guns.

    I think it was an assault spear, not a gladius.

    They apparently forget Jesus’ command at the Last Supper:

    Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?”

    “Nothing,” they answered.

    He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. – Luke 22: 35-36

    Even Jesus saw the need to defend yourself

    I’ll have to stop by and make a purchase on Friday.

    I understand that the Holmesburg F&G Club is preparing a large counter-protest. And, the Holmesburg folk have told the owner of the shop where I work, Lock’s, that if these HGC people show up at her shop, she should call and they’ll be right over.

    Dunno what the landscape is like in PA, but here in IL we found that the only thing bringing attention to Jesse Jackson and Pfleger’s protests at local gun shops was the possibility of counter-protesters.

    At the request of the gun shop owners, we stopped counter-protesting and they lost interest in protesting.

    I think you might only be feeding the fires.

    “I think you might only be feeding the fires.”

    It depends on who’s causing the fire. It’s my understanding that these “anti-gun” protesters started the protests; if enough anti-protests happen, the anti-gunners might realize that the best way to get the pro-gunners to go away would be to stop protesting.

    Having said that, the pro-gun protesters need to be on their best behavior–both in action and in posters!–to convince everyone that pro-gun people aren’t wackos. (Although we don’t have much control of anti-gun protester behavior, if they aren’t on their best behavior, that would ultimately be good for the pro-gun movement.)

  9. David Lawson aka Melancton Smith says:

    I think you misunderstand the dynamics of protesting and media.

    What we found in IL is that the media would show up if there were counter-protesters. If not, the protest turns into a non-event. No media, didn’t happen.

    They want counter-protesters because then they get the attention they seek.

    Maybe it is different in a generally pro-gun state.

  10. I will start to take seriously leftists claiming that they want us to “heed God’s call” when I see them protesting outside abortion clinics and gay bars. Otherwise, they are cherry-picking the Bible, like those who cherry-pick verses about the evils of drunkenness as a justification for banning alcohol.

    I showed up with my camera and shot a couple of rolls. Even got a couple of shots of Bryan Miller, who was a good sport and smiled for the camera. I gave no indication of which side I was on, and played the neutral observer.

    It was pretty funny when the Mr. Softee truck showed up to drown out the speakers. A dick move, but I did get a chuckle out of it.
