Targeting Churches: Fox News Produces Ominous Report on Threats in America
Fox News, Guardian UK via Get Religion ^ | August 9, 2016 | Fox News, Guardian UK via Jim Davis

No one is saying, yet, that terrorists are ready to attack American churches the way they have in the Middle East or, more recently, against the Rev. Jacques Hamel in France. But as Fox News reports, the threats are already looming.

And before you say, "What else would Fox say?", consider the examples in the article: hate speech, death threats and aborted attack plans of the type that would be familiar to Jewish leaders.

This is how ominous it can get – and how some police are slow to address the situation, according to Fox:

As Father Josiah Trenham prepared to read the Gospel, several parishioners discreetly scooped up their babies, retreated up the aisles of St. Andrew Orthodox Church and out into the spring air, so as not to allow the crying of little ones to disturb the divine liturgy.

The time-honored tradition was shattered when a car passed by the Riverside, Calif., church, slowing down as the front passenger leaned out of his window and bellowed menacingly through a bullhorn, according to witnesses.

"Allahu Akbar!" the unidentified man repeated several times as the unnerved parents drew their infants close and exchanged worried glances.

Witnesses were able to give Riverside police a description of the green Honda Civic, but not of the three occupants. Some told police they believed one or more of the men may have been taking photographs, according to Officer Ryan Railsback. Although Trenham insisted multiple congregants heard the Arabic phrase, Railsback noted no mention of it was in the police report.

Whatever the case, no law was broken – even if an unmistakable message was sent and received.

Fox, of course, is hardly the only news outfit to notice the hatred of jihadis against Christians. As The Guardian reports, more and more voices are calling.....

I have professionally counseled churches on security. It is amazing to stand up and walk around these church boards and shake them into reality. I grant no mercy on the reality coming. They need military trained leaders to train for moslem attacks on congregations IN THEIR CHURCH. I paint a horrible scenario. They are in denial, They will come out of denial soon.

Orthodox Ping!

Save Thy people, O Lord,
and bless Thine inheritance.
Grant victory to Thy Church over her enemies,
and protect Thy people by Thy Holy Cross!

Retaliation will not begin on the first incident...but it will happen and it may become merciless.

I pack a 9mm every church service. A retired cop packs and a deacon or two pack a pistol in our church. I would not end well for the goat humpers of muhammad.

Christian Churches that I know of and am affiliated with have had plenty of security added since 9-11-2001.

It's the new norm.

Bring it on, achmed.

Yeah, a suit allows me to pack big in a shoulder holster, Glock 20, 2 extra 15s for a little balance. Pews also make great cover...they will be in for a shock.

Good for you. I’m sure you don’t have your backs to the doors and can observe anyone coming in.

But they don’t know what they are doing. They need training. — not jus “pull trigger courage” They need communication and killers.

I am worried that the terrorists would try a Beslan on a US mega Church. I know the Churches in this area have been holding joint meetings to discuss security.

Praying God’s protection over our nation.

I’ll have to look up that old story. Is that an Edgar Allen Poe story?
