Remember when Barack Obama got slammed for saying that bitter Americans “cling to guns or religion” when times get tough? Well turns out he was at least half right. From Sunday’s Washington Post:
The number of people in crisis calling and showing up at the doors of [Washington] area churches, synagogues, mosques and temples is escalating. Parishioners are bringing their pastors important questions about faith in difficult times, and some ministers are seeing their own budgets straining.
Though there are no gun shops in D.C., I'm sure business at the ones in the northern Virginia and southern Maryland is booming too.
