Wisconsin Bishops Ask For No Guns In Churches

What does a cafeteria Catholic do?

Wisconsin’s bishops are urging parishioners to keep their concealed weapons out
of church.

The state’s five bishops issued a statement Monday saying they won’t mandate churches prohibit concealed weapons but want parishioners not to carry them into churches as a sign of reverence.

They want local pastors to consider that Catholic teachings stress non-violent conflict
resolution and Catholic churches have a long tradition of serving as sanctuaries
for people fleeing violence as they decide whether to allow concealed weapons or
ban them.
