Church blesses assault weapons because ‘returning Christ’ will pack an AR-15

Published

on

Parishioners in Pennsylvania are planning to attend church services armed with AR-15 rifles so that they can be blessed, WNEP reported.

“This will be a big thing for us. It’s a new stage for us because it incorporates the rod of iron, as it is in Revelations. Revelations talks about the returning Christ ruling with the rod of iron,” said Tim Elder.

Sanctuary Church and Rod of Iron Ministries is an offshoot of the Unification Church, founded by the late Sun Myung Moon. It is led by his son, the Rev. Sean Moon.

“This rod of iron is the AR-15, in today’s terms,” Elder claimed.

Elder is referencing Revelation 2:27.

“And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father,” the King James translation reads. Other translations refer to an “iron scepter” instead of “rod of iron.”

Sun Myung Moon also founded the conservative Washington Times.

The AR-15 blessing ceremony will occur in Dreher Township in Northeast Pennsylvania. The Moon family moved their Kahr Firearms factory to nearby Blooming Grove in 2015.

The Rev. Sean Moon attended the Kahr Firearms grand opening, which is run by his brother, Justin Moon.

“We are so inspired to be in this land, so different from other states in which we’ve been,” said Reverend Sean Moon, Sanctuary Church.

Kahr Firearms moved to Pennsylvania to be able to manufacture so-called, “Tommy Guns” — semi-automatic Thompson submachine guns. The Prohibition-era weapon is also known as the ‘Chicago Typewrite.’

“We had to look for more gun-friendly state in northeast. Pennsylvania as a large state is most gun-friendly northeastern state,” Justin Moon explained.

“It’s the minority that keeps on saying we have an issue, issue is decided,” Justin Moon argued, adding “we love freedom, we love our guns, we’re not going to give them up.”

‘Nickel and Dimed’ for the sharing economy: Inside the hellish new reality of low-wage work

Published

on

In 2001, journalist Barbara Ehrenreich's investigative book "Nickel and Dimed" revealed to those who weren't on low-wage payrolls how expensive it is to be a member of the working poor in America. Some things haven't changed since Ehrenreich's experiences working as a Walmart clerk, a restaurant server and a maid, among other jobs. Housing can still be prohibitively expensive on low hourly wages, and high turnover remains a constant. Workers still risk their health — mental, physical and emotional — every precarious day.
