I've been following and commenting on a blog article about concealed carry in church. ( http://holysoup.com/2015/12/15/terror-tension-guns-in-church/ ) In the comments section we've been going round and round and one guy posted this article, which points out how people just don't want to admit that we need to protect ourselves. http://www.gleamingedge.com/mirrors/onsheepwolvesandsheepdogs.html "If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined yourself as an aggressive sociopath, a wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? What do you have then? A sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero's path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed. Let me expand on this old soldier's excellent model of the sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. We know that the sheep live in denial, that is what makes them sheep. They do not want to believe that there is evil in the world. "
