From the You Gotta Be Shitting Me Files:

Guns for Jesus

In an effort its spokesman has described as “outreach to rednecks,” the Kentucky Baptist Convention is leading “Second Amendment Celebrations,” where churches around the state give away guns as door prizes to lure in nonbelievers in hopes of converting them to Christ.
As many as 1,000 people are expected at the next one, on Thursday at Lone Oak Baptist Church in Paducah, where they will be given a free steak dinner and the chance to win one of 25 handguns, long guns and shotguns.
The goal is to “point people to Christ,” the church says in a flier. Chuck McAlister, an ex-pastor, master storyteller and former Outdoor Channel hunting show host who presides at the events as the Kentucky Baptist Convention’s team leader for evangelism, said 1,678 men made “professions of faith” at about 50 such events last year, most of them in Kentucky.

Their collective brains could fit into the tip of the bullet. Just goes to show. All religion is what each individual wants it to be and molds it their own individual belief and desires. Clearly God, if ever there was one, gave up and left a long long time ago, leaving the whack jobs in charge with minority brainers struggling to make sense of it all.

You have to admit that those people in the Jebus marketing department definitely know their intended audience.

Red Meat and Gunz will definitely attract a whole bunch of good Ole boyz.

The only things missing are a case of moonshine and a monster truck.
