Contemporary “Worship” of Firearms: Challenging Current Interpretations of the 2nd Amendment

15 September @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

Free

Please join Religions for Peace for a discussion on the evolution of the 2nd amendment and how the civic religion of the United States uses / subverts Judeo-Christian teachings to exalt firearms. We will explore how the interpretation of 2nd amendment as an individual right to bear arms has superseded the unalienable right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” enumerated in the US Declaration of Independence.
