Joe Biden Wants Churches To Push For Gun Control


The Obama Administration hasn’t been a friend to Christians. It’s promoted abortion and gay marriage. It’s persecuted Catholics. The military has become hostile to Christians under Obama. But now, the Obama Administration wants pastors and churches to join its push for gun control.

Joe Biden

Vice President Joe Biden has a commandment for pastors, rabbis and nuns: He wants them to tell their flocks that enacting gun control is the moral thing to do. But another vote may have to wait until Congress wraps up work on an immigration overhaul.

Biden met for two-and-a-half hours Monday with more than a dozen leaders from various faith communities — Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh, to name a few. Both Biden and the faith leaders encouraged each other not to give up on what has been an arduous and thus far fruitless effort by Biden and President Barack Obama to pass new gun laws in the wake of December’s schoolhouse shooting in Connecticut.

…Lingering concerns from some participants illustrated the ongoing challenge the administration faces in winning support for the proposals, even though Biden and Obama regularly tout polls suggesting they enjoy broad support. Some participants raised questions about whether background checks could lead to a national gun registry or whether mental health provisions would be used to create a list of individuals permanently banned from obtaining guns.

Isn’t it funny that a liberal administration that is habitually hostile to Christians still has the nerve to ask for their help while Republicans seem to be afraid to be associated with Christians? Why aren’t more Republicans having meetings with “leaders from various faith communities” to ask for their help in pushing our mutual agenda?
