  1. Dear Bishop Ian –

    Thank you for your inspiring words.

    As someone “steeped in the ways of politics” for much of my life, I fear that those arrayed against us on gun control are not interested in compromise, but rather nullification of the overwhelming popular will that seeks rational regulation of the tools of killing. But in my new calling I remain of good hope that rationality and morality will prevail…even in the corridors of politics.

    On Friday, the people of Christ the Lord in Pinole, California – in the congressional district of Mike Thompson, chair of the congressional task force on gun violence – will mark the Stations of the Cross in a public march through the city on behalf of gun control.

    Trusting that others will do the same throughout the nation, I pray that people of faith will deliver a message loud and clear to the NRA and to the gun manufacturers who support it: Enough! No More!

Speak Your Mind
