In Alabama, Guns v. Bibles

Mark Silk, at RNS, always seems to find news items I miss which is why I check his website at least daily. Today, he writes about the great State of Alabama, where some conservatives are upset that the state's open carry law, allowing people to bring their guns to the polling places with them, cannot be applied to churches, some of which do double duty as polling places on election day. Here is a GOP conundrum of the first order: religious freedom versus Second Amendment. If there was a way to entice a gay gun rights' advocate into the mix, it would be a perfect storm for today's fitful conservative craziness.
