JoBi Tells Religious Leaders: Morality Favors Gun Control

May 8, 2013 by  

Noted theologian and United States Vice President Joe Biden entreated a room full of religious leaders to support Congress’ second attempt at gun control by recasting the language of gun-related violence in moral terms when communicating with their followers.

In a closed-door meeting Monday, Biden spoke with Christian, Muslim, Jewish and other religious leaders, calling for them to counter the National Rifle Association’s Constitutional basis for fighting gun restrictions with a moral one, according to TheBlaze.

That may be a tough sell to people like Rabbi Dovid Bendory of Jews For The Preservation Of Firearms Ownership or Pastor Chuck Baldwin, as well as the multitude of religious people out there who make compelling moral cases in favor of preserving 2nd Amendment powers.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
