The church wants to “honor” hunters and gun owners.  Because that’s what Jesus was all about. I mean, Jesus really loved the Second Amendment, right?

State Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin will speak; evangelist Dr. Bob Gray will preach; and one lucky attendee will win an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, according to a flier released on the church’s website.

Pastor John Koletas of Grace Baptist Church is out to show his community’s support for hunters and gun enthusiasts who, he said, “have been so viciously attacked by the antichristian socialist media and antichristian socialist politicians the last few years.”…

“I’m just trying to be a blessing and a help to the gun owners and the hunters and give away a free AR-15,” Koletas told Times Union. “It’s the right thing to do.”
