  1. Most country dwellers have rifles and it isnt to go out and kill people,the Greek orthodox religion has many caves as churches,very old,I expect Jesus preached in caves which had been set up as a place of prayer,does prayer have to happen in a cathedral which costs ten million to build?Very derogatory names used to describe these people.
