What happens when the pastor of a progressive, social justice obsessed church buys a modern sporting rifle? Freakouts and hand-wringing, of course. To try to explain how this could have happened, author and musician David Gungor says gun-loving Christians love violence more than the Gospel and he aims to prove it by quoting a gay Catholic heretic. Plus tips from Sgt. Bill and Aaron Israel and a report from the She Never Quit Summit by Mia Anstine.
