Blessed are the Meek

From Politico:

Louisiana GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal has signed a law allowing holders of concealed-weapons permits to carry guns into houses of worship.

The bill, signed Tuesday night, allows permit holders who take an additional eight hours of tactical training each year to bring a gun into “any church, synagogue, mosque or other similar place of worship.”

The American fusion of Christianity with militant nationalism and devotion to guns is one of our weirdest national foibles and proof that most people are capable of believing many mutually contradictory things.
