A planned blessing event at a small church in Pennsylvania that asked couples to bring an AR-15 or similar rifle with them took place peacefully, but with some protesters.
As detailed by Guns.com previously, the World Peace and Unification Sanctuary Church in Newfoundland planned its event not to bless the firearms themselves but rather to allow attending couples to rededicate their marriages to each other. The gun, seen as the “rod of iron” in the Book of Revelations by church leaders, is cited as a symbol that shows “both the intent and the ability” to defend ones’ family, community, and nation. In all, several hundred attended, with rifles in tow.
