Red face And the Episcopal Church CONTINUES to shrink...

... thanks to idiots like this!


Reverend wins rifle -- and wants it destroyed


Oregon Rev. Jeremy Lucas canít wait to destroy his raffle prize.
Thatís because Lucas, who preaches at the Christ Church Episcopal Parish in Lake Oswego, won an AR-15 two weeks ago in a local raffle designed to help a girls softball team pay for a trip to a California tournament.

The Rev. Jeremy Lucas. (Christ Church Episcopal Parish)


Lucas said he's a fan of the team, but no fan of the weapon. ďThis was right after the shootings in Baton Rouge and there was a lot of heat and energy around the issue of guns,Ē he told The Oregonian. ďI want to live in a world where a girls softball team doesnít have to raffle off a gun because itís the quickest way to make money.Ē


So Lucas bought 150 of the 499 raffle tickets using $3,000 in church discretionary funds, and hoped the odds were in his favor.


They were. And now that heís the owner of an AR-15, he needs to figure out the best way to dispose of it. He told The Oregonian that heís contacting local artists to try to turn the weapon into art.


ďI want it to be a symbol where we take something destructive, because a gun can never be constructive, and turn it into something else,Ē Lucas said. ďEven if itís one gun out of a million, itís one less for someone to hurt someone else or themselves with.Ē
What... an... idiot. And a WASTE of church money! I wonder what the IRS will think of this (mis)use of church funds...

Then I think of OUR Pastor (Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod), who builds his own AR-15's, and LEGALLY carries a 1911! And I'm glad I'm not stuck in the Episcopal Church - OR a live-action episode of "Portlandia!"

Normally I don't speak ill of people, or try not to unless they deserve it, but this guy is a moron.
