Churches Warned to Start Taking Security Seriously Amidst Terror Threat

The Church of England must step up security to protect staff and worshippers as they could be targeted as Britain faces a “severe” threat of terror from Islamist attackers, an expert in church security has said.

    I would have thought it “Islamophobic” to issue such a warning on behalf of Christian churches.

    Those blasted Methodists again! When will we ever be free of their rebellious scourge?

    Gee, what has changed in the UK that Churches are now at risk for being fire-bombed or a jihad mass slaughter by a mentally ill criminal with nothing to do with islam .

      And the cab rides are better too!

    How? England has long been disarmed. Perhaps a few bollards outside churches to hinder Ramavans?

  • The simple fact that there is a need for “an expert in church security” says a lot.

    Church security is probably what I’ll end up doing when the situation escalates enough. But knowing Canada it’ll be done with a bouquet and fuzzy handcuffs.

    Remember that terror attack on that church in Normandy? I would say that one was more chilling in nature due to the fact that it drove home the fact that Islamic Jihad is a religious war against all who don’t believe as they do…

    And the topic of this week’s sermon: “As ye sow, so shall ye reap.”

    Why bother. The harder you struggle the harder you choke.
