The congregation that does drag so well, the gay-loving Saint Mark United Methodist Church, wants to make one thing clear: Pack your Bible, but not your gun, when you visit their Midtown chapel.
On July 1, a new Georgia law took effect allowing concealed weapons in scores of new places, including bars and churches, unless property owners prohibit them. The law made the state just one of 13 allowing weapons in bars and restaurants; even fewer OK guns in churches.
A few days later, Saint Mark spelled out their position with the help of a large banner installed on the front law abutting Peachtree Street. “Just so we are clear,” the church posted on its Facebook page, to the delight of more than 100 supporters.
