A church in Pennsylvania is offering a blessing ceremony for hundreds of couples and other worshippers featuring their AR-15 rifles.
World Peace and Unification Sanctuary in Newfoundland believes the AR-15 symbolizes the “rod of iron” in the biblical book of Revelation, and encouraged couples to bring the weapons to the commitment ceremony Wednesday morning. The AR-15 is the gun used in the Florida high school massacre.
About 50 weapons, secured by orange zip-ties, have been checked in so far by the crown-wearing worshippers.
A church leader is telling those gathered that the ceremony is a blessing of couples, “not a blessing of inanimate objects.” He called the AR-15s and crowns “religious accoutrements.”
Outside the church are two sign-waving protesters. One sign says “shame” and the other calls the group an “armed cult.”
Because liberals are so hysterical when it comes to guns and individual rights, a local school district is canceling classes at it’s elementary school out of, likely unfounded, fear for students safety.
The ceremony is to be held about a half-mile from Wallenpaupack South Elementary School, and is expected to draw hundreds of couples, who are invited to bring their semi-automatic rifles to “show their willingness to defend their families, communities and nation,” CBS Philadelphia reports.
