Culture of Terror: Cologne Cathedral to hire Christian private security guards

SECURITY is to be beefed up at Cologne Cathedral including increased bag checks and private guards drafted in amid heightened fears of a new attack – and officials are demanding the workers are Christian.

The German city is bringing in a host of stringent new measures in response to a culture of terror on the continent.

Cathedral provost Gerd Bachner confirmed from March 1 there will be a ban on large suitcases, travel and hiking bags into the cathedral.
