Religious Tolerance reports a total of 999 murders in church between 1974 and 1999, essentially 50 murders a year in church.
Our own media search turns up 1,073, or 42 a year. And wwwwwe counted more than 1700 murders in churches form 1 January, 200 to 31 December, 2015.
Of course, active kilelrs like to target churches for the same reason they target schools. There are plenty of helpless victims in both types of institution.
why the increase during the 21st Century? Apparently prescription drugs, since a very high percentage of sanctuary killers have been prescribed a particularly troublesome calls of drugs, and try to get off without proper supervision.
What can we do about it? If Peter and Andrew could carry a sword at the Last Supper, Old Ish can carry a gun in church. I commend the same practice to you. If the preacher does not like it find a church with a preacher more concerned about his flock’s safety than appearances.
Actually, my preacher and I seem to have an agreemnt about carry. I carry in church and the preacher dose not complain. And as long as he does not complain, I will keep on dropping money in his collection plate.
