I wonder where the line is drawn? The kkk are incredibly religous and carry weapons to every single ceremony they have to show the force that they have to support their point.
If they choose to say that their interpretation of christianity should allow them to carry pistols, should that be allowed to happen as well?
It is just too much of a slippery slope in my opinion. We as a society cannot continue to allow a religion to force it's beliefs on society at large especially when those beliefs are illegal.
