The state of Texas passed Senate Bill 535 that clarifies the possession of firearms at churches, synagogues or other places of worship. It allows licensed handgun owners to legally carry their weapons in places of worship -- and comes nearly two years after a gunman killed 26 people at Sutherland Springs church. This is like having candy in a dentist office to pleasure the patient. Each are out of place when each doesn't serves as a means of healing. Why would you need to bring a gun into a church when the sermons speaks of God as a protector and provider. The US has a motto "In God we trust" it was adopted by the U.S. Congress in 1956, supplanting E pluribus unum, "Out of many, one” in use since the initial 1776 design of the Great Seal of the United States. In God we trust is preached somewhere in a church about God being a protector. Psalm 18 (KJV) 1. I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. 2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. 3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. What is it about the state of Texas whose security is in firearms and yet their motto is, Everything is bigger in Texas right down to having the biggest churches in the country. It seems that their God that the whole country shares loses all his power in Texas therefore a firearm is needed. It is not the big Texas that is the problem but the small minded white men who are passing the laws to legally carry their weapons in places of worship.
