Vicars told churches should have ‘bouncers’ due to likelihood of Muslim terrorism

Churches should have a ‘bouncer’ on the door throughout services to improve security, new counter terrorism advice suggests, as an expert has warned small parish churches are more at risk of attack that larger places of worship.

New guidance issued after the murder of a French priest by Islamic State supporters advises churches should fit CCTV and personal attack alarms.

The risk of a terrorist attack on a church in Britain is believed to have increased since terrorists slit the throat of Father Jacques Hamel.

    you’re all thinking this, aren’t you?

    The bouncer should also be alerted in case of tambourine playing, which is almost as bad as a Muslim terror attack.

    Welcome to synagogue on the High Holidays (or at a Bar/Bat Mitzvah…I had to hire security). But the security guards aren’t armed, so I don’t know what the point of having them is. There will just be a couple of additional dead people to add to the body count.

      In Vancouver and the lower mainland synagogues have had to have beefed up security for years now, which means you cannot just go in without clearance. It is a sad state of affairs but there you have it. Now the churches are getting a bit of a taste of the same thing.

        I know.

        Growing up we had a big, burly guy sit at the door of my small shul so that he could check out everyone who came through the door before going upstairs.

    Can this be another hint that your country has too much immigrant diversity?

      No, it indicates that more violators need to be killed when they try to attack Christians.

    Cameras? That’s not a deterrent, that’s an INCENTIVE. They WANT their faces and deeds on every screen.

    Personal alarms? Yeah right, a loud and annoying noise maker is going to chase off an attacking jihadi. Whoever is making the annoying racket is gonna die first.
