Picked up some steam.

When I posted the question about church and guns from my previous post (see previous post...obviously.), I wasn't really that invested in the subject at all.  I just happened across an article that raised a question in my mind, and I posted that question before I even had a chance to really contemplate it myself.  Over the course of a week, the issue sort of kept after me, and I chewed on it more and more.  I've come to realize I care a lot more about this issue than I originally did...I ended up posting a painfully long comment outlining a few of my concerns. Anyway, since the comment is long enough to be its own post, I'd love for any of you to add more to my thoughts and any other thoughts as well.
