Bishops Against Gun Violence Conference Begins in Chicago


From Anglican Communion News Service

A conference has begun in Chicago, facilitated by a group of more than 60 Episcopal bishops working to curtail the epidemic of gun violence in the United States. “Unholy Trinity: the Intersection of Racism, Poverty and Gun Violence” is a three-day event grounded in scripture, liturgy and theology.

The conference will feature a “three-note” panel of African-American leaders offering perspectives on poverty, racism and gun violence and include Bible study focused on the conference themes as well as a prayerful procession to sites of gun violence on Chicago’s South Side.

Workshops at the conference are devoted to helping participants work with police, young people, legislators, the media, anti-violence advocacy groups and other constituencies to reduce gun violence.

So glad to see this. Guns in the 21st century are like cigarettes were in the 20th century. Society catered to smokers - we just had to have our cigarettes - it was cool to smoke. Now we know cigarettes are nasty, unhealthy, deadly. I pray we come to the same conclusion regarding guns.
