In March of 2018, progressive clergy held an interfaith press conference held at Augustana Lutheran Church in Portland, Oregon, led by Augustana's pastor, Mark Knutsen. Knutsen describes Augustana as a holy place where "justice and peace kiss." That press conference launched the the "Lift Every Voice" campaign to gather signatures to get an "assault weapons" ban on the November ballot. In another feature-length segment of Clinging to God & Guns, Lloyd and Pastor Bennett analyze the incoherent ramblings from that conference and unmask the opportunism, fear-mongering and ignorance behind the campaign.

Amen.
