Early Americans, Going to Church, Carrying Weapons

Note: I recognize the right of ALL Americans to defend themselves, and bear arms, whatever their religion may be. However there are many people who have the mistaken impression that Christians should be pacifists. I hope these links will dispel that wrong view. This is only a list of links. Most of the articles were not written by ME. This web page was updated on February 26, 2010. Newer links are at the top of the list.
