A disgraced former Navy chaplain this week told his viewers that Jesus would want them to "sell your clothes and buy a gun."

During his Pray In Jesus Name Internet show, Chaplain Gordon James "Chaps" Klingenschmitt suggested that the Department of Homeland Security was trying to enslave citizens by hoarding all of the ammunition.

"I think Jesus would favor the Second Amendment," Klingenschmitt explained. "This is my opinion, that the Holy Spirit would allow the citizens to protect themselves rather than delegating that to a government to go out arm themselves against the citizens in the name of protecting the citizens.

The former Navy chaplain pointed out that Jesus had told his disciples who did not have a sword to "sell his cloak and buy one" when he was being hunted by the Romans.

"You know what, citizens, if you don't have a gun, I'm telling you as a Christian chaplain, sell your clothes and buy a gun," Klingenschmitt insisted. "It's time. The government persecution will be coming against you, and you need to arm yourselves and your family when that time comes."
