Dwight, it seems we have something in common. I am a youth pastor and I don't carry in the church sanctuary, out of respect. I do however carry religiously (pardon the pun) when I am with the youth group on an outing/lock ins etc. Our youth group almost exclusively consists of pretty highschool girls. I have stood back many times and watched the looks they get from men nearby who are old enough to be their fathers and old enough to know better. The girls are largely clueless about this. Don’t get me wrong they are as well behaved and well covered (many thanks to my wife for dealing with this particular topic) a group of girls as you are likely to meet these days. But even so, they do stand out. My wife and I sometimes feel like choking them, but we really do love them like they are our own.As the pastor of a local church, it is my option to carry, not carry.
So far I have not, . . . but should the bg's ever learn how easy it would be, and how much cash is there for the taking, . . . well, . . . . . . . . . I guess I'll cross that bridge then.
May God bless,
