Kentucky baptists know how to draw a crowd. Giveaway guns for free!
The Kentucky Baptist convention is going on right now in at Lone Oak First Baptist Church in Paducah, Ky. They had a line wrapped around the corner for the convention this year thanks to their brilliant idea of giving away guns to participants.
There’s nothing new about gun raffles in Kentucky, even at a church. Last year, there were 50 events like this one in the state. The Kentucky Baptist Convention says it’s a surefire way to get new people through church doors.

Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden will speak via videoconference to the attendees of South by Southwest Interactive later this morning, and you can bet a much wider audience than just those here in Austin will be watching.
Snowden will be speaking from Russia, which is still offering him asylum as he faces felony charges of espionage here in the U.S. The man behind leaks that revealed U.S. surveillance tactics and scope is expected to talk about the impact of that surveillance on the technology community. He’s also expected to call for technologists to build better tools with user privacy in mind.
Not everyone thinks Snowden has the authority to speak on this topic. U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., wrote an open letter to conference organizers on Friday calling Snowden a traitor and demanding that they rescind their invitation to the former contractor. Pompeo wrote that Snowden’s “only apparent qualification … is his willingness to steal from his own government and then flee to that beacon of First Amendment freedoms, the Russia of Vladimir Putin.” SXSW hasn’t responded.
Despite the objections of some U.S. leaders, the long lines Saturday for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s videoconference on similar topics indicate Snowden’s appearance will draw monster crowds. Conference organizers will have a handful of spillover rooms set up for viewing the talk from outside the main venue, and the nonprofit news organization The Texas Tribune will be livestreaming the Q & A session for anyone with an Internet connection.
