    "The Kentucky Baptist Convention wants to "point people to Christ" by giving away guns at Second Amendment Celebrations hosted across the state.



    In the words of spokesman Chuck McAlister the strategy is "outreach to rednecks," and 1,000 people are expected to attend the next event.

    To lure the nonreligious into the fold, the churches are offering a handgun, shotgun, or long gun as door prizes.

    Winners attend church for a photo-op with their new gun, but they must pass a background check before collecting their prize.



    "The number of unchurched men who will show up will be in direct proportion to the number of guns you give away," McAlister told The Courier-Journal.

    "And I can almost tell you the number of men who would show up based on the make or model.

    There is a huge interest among unchurched men in the state of Kentucky regarding guns and gun rights that is even more of a draw than a toaster or money would be.""* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
