Column: 1,300 churches join gun debate

The mental images of churches and guns are about as incongruous as possible. Churches are quiet, reverent places of worship. They are places of peace, healing and comfort. Guns are loud, sudden and violent. They are about blood, pain and death.
They exist in two different realms.
Add to this the idea that S.C. churches and synagogues would get involved in nitty gritty politics – that they would delve into lobbying and legislative deal making – well, that’s more than many of us can fathom.
