    Episode 264 - And You Thought Last Week Was the Dumbest

    In this week's "Clinging to God & Guns" show, Lloyd and Pastor Bennett continue fisking an article from Patheos.com that is so chocked-full of stupid that it's going to require three full shows to dissect. The author, a United Methodist "pastor," says we're all going to hell for not supporting gun control.
    There's so much stupid that we could not cover it all in one episode so tune in next week for episode 265 when we continue our descent into madness.

    Episode 263 - The Dumbest thing you will Read All Week

    In this week's "Clinging to God & Guns" show, Lloyd and Pastor Bennett get back to their roots by fisking an article from Patheos.com. The author, a United Methodist "pastor," says we're all going to hell for not supporting gun control. Lloyd and Pastor dissect this IQ-destroying article filled with bogus stats, self-righteous slander, logical fallacies, and a staggering level of ignorance.
    There's so much stupid that we could not cover it all in one episode so tune in next week for episode 264 when we continue our descent into madness.

    Episode 259 - Background Checks and Why You Should Oppose Them

    If the purpose of background checks is to keep guns out of the hands of the wrong people, why shouldn't we support them? Lloyd and Pastor Bennett tackle the issue logically and theologically to help you better understand the consequences of new legislation and why they are bad ideas.

Fr. Firearm ,

Easily the best source for Christian gun ownership

Lloyd is great! As a competition shooter following along with Lloyd, Bill, and John is perfect for me. As a hunter, Mia is brilliant and aids me in my hunting prowess! Hands down this is the best Biblical defense/2nd Amendment podcast available!
