The Dianne Feinstein unveiled -- gun control legislation yesterday.
And open a news conference with oppress half from the dean of the national cathedral -- whole listened to -- -- You know everyone in this city seems to live in terror of the gun lobby.
But I believe that the gun lobby is no match for the cross lobby.
Especially when we stand together as people of all -- across the religious landscape of America.
Look to me like that Kraft was basically a push for god to make gone advocates why is off it was very much in Fave all -- gun control and it was a Pratt.
Our next guest says this is religious exploitation.
-- we filed with Bill -- he is president of the Catholic league little Villa welcomed the program thank you so much let's spell it out the cleric that.
Made -- -- which was directly involved with a political message pro gun control is that the right thing -- cleric to do.
Absolutely not when I first heard about this I was commending Dianne Feinstein to the people who -- -- -- they called me about this I said you know what you can have a prayer we should welcome that.
I called back after I checked into this and I found out that they this guy.
Exploited the issue.
Now we have gone is on the side of the dog -- but gone does not on the side for or against the -- and I would condemn the NRA if they had somebody up there as well.
And to -- is a political speech like this.
If you reported -- clergy man or woman.
And and that person said we asked god for our our wisdom.
So that we make the right decision about this I'm all in favor of that I have no idea I was giving Dianne Feinstein the benefit of the doubt.
But this is the same plotting with its true bought out of the platform a few months ago the Democratic National Convention -- -- they had to find -- again.
-- you an equal opportunity critic and by that I mean the following the Idaho State GOP convention.
A cleric said this -- dear lord I ask that on Thursday November the whatever there's Election Day find a new job for president Barack Obama that's.
Wrong that's not the role of -- clergy person to say something of that their nature I I condemn that as well I mean if we.
Gotten to the point when he can't even have a a a neutral nonpartisan prayer.
Are on the part of a clergy person that we -- we'll get out of clergy people.
Against each other.
I had people of different religions and within the same religion and I mean I wouldn't Cameron was a Catholic priest that maybe -- this -- mandatory.
You know right now you unknowns in the priesthood you're not a -- -- that are in the -- you what you run the light achieved.
This is some sort of put it like that the Catholic league right so it's okay.
For you to say that Barack Obama should have sworn in for a second -- come on dot -- is dust up at all well that's an extreme excitement I.
Said that because Lawrence O'Donnell the professed socialist -- MSNBC.
Was railing against christianity.
And talking about how we shouldn't no -- should use the Bible whatsoever.
And so -- made economists Maki comment while benefit you feel that way what did you should moderate cap and -- put it on dust copy -- that might be.
Born to what is thinking I'm bill -- Here to start quoting Bible scriptures with you listening -- that's gonna be terrified but it didn't Jesus say Matthew 26 those who live by the sword die by the sword isn't there a role for that kind of thinking -- here in this debate.
Absolutely there's no question about it.
I just think that when you're -- Our clergy person in to a public ceremony of this nature.
You expect them to -- S from our dependence on the creator of the boy divine Providence that's the kind of like would you want without committed here when he used that term.
The tell right.
Of the gun lobby all of a sudden they've gotten caught on one side of this issue it's a very complicated issue as we well know what deals that mental health issues it deals with -- video games pornography which -- -- -- menace and the like.
That and all of a sudden now you're -- given a religiously exploit and public policy issue for political capital now both sides would be wrong.
I -- I want to express an opinion on feinstein's bill I think is a very -- -- piece of legislation.
It will not do anything.
To solve the problem of mass -- in our schools it won't touch it whatsoever it doesn't go anywhere near the problem of having.
Mentally ill people -- guns it doesn't address that problem at all is simply wants to suppress.
Whole area of gun ownership which I think is not the right in my opinion what you have an opinion on -- Look the -- it bothers me is this Dianne Feinstein had every right to get a concealed weapon permit before she became a senator.
Raise the question.
How -- always is the Rosie O'Donnell's of the Dianne feinstein's who always make an exception that they should have guns or their bodyguard should have guns but the rest of us should not have guns.
And -- she's -- you know this.
Our friend Joseph Biden came out of the day said you know you wanna protect -- self -- get a shot -- he's shocked.
My daughter just -- -- she that's hidden guns swords this goes way beyond.
What they have with the assault weapons ban in 1994.
You know billion evolution.
They could be 85 is all you elaborate yet you know it's racing to get -- shows that I forgot my -- -- -- how -- that I forget my -- I suspect that a -- -- Little blue dog maybe that's -- -- eat healthy -- yeah.
It's below that I thought it was just another dog will -- Obama -- everyone thank you very much -- -- thank you.
