From a religious perspective, yes. I think practicing homosexuality is contrary to God's plan, and that those doing so are putting their souls at risk. That doesn't mean I hate them, as many would claim.

Brandishing a Firearm is against the law - DUH!!! I would suspect that the large majority of criminals who use a firearm do not go through any training and are probably not concealed carry card holders. Besides where in the story does it say anything about him receiving such training.

St. Francis breaks ground on $2.9 million Parish Center

1 year, 2 months ago by Bob Gough

A groundbreaking ceremony for the St. Francis Parish Center was held yesterday on the church grounds between College and Lind on 17th street.
 
A Building Toegether in Faith campaign was launched in 2012 to raise $2.9 million for a parish center.  It was the first formal capital campaign for the parish in many years - possibly the first ever.
 
The facility will include spaces for the many activities of the parish that now take place in the church or school.The planned parish will be a two-level facility with a covered drop-off canopy, handicapped entrance, additional parking, large vestibule for fellowship, Vestry, choir room, parish library and other meeting spaces.
The center will be located adjacent to St. Francis Church, near the northwest corner of 17th and Elm Streets. 

Campaign events and requests for pledges and gifts from parishioners and community members began 18 months ago.

Campaign leaders, Fr. Don Blaeser, pastor, Mayor Kyle Moore, and members of the Parish and Fransciscan community participated in the ceremony.
