MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's Roman Catholic bishops are
urging parishioners to keep their concealed weapons out of church.

The state's five bishops issued a statement Monday saying they won't require churches to prohibit concealed weapons but want parishioners to refrain from carrying them into churches as a sign of reverence.

The bishops also are reminding the church pastors that Catholic
teachings stress non-violent conflict resolution and Catholic churches have a long tradition of serving as sanctuaries for people fleeing violence.
