    A "volunteer security guard" who just happened to be armed ... and while she wasn't honing up on her sharp shooting she was (according to her) had just spent the last three days in a pious state of anorexia christosa.  Yeah, that's someone I want with a loaded gun.

    Sure she got the guy.  But who would have been next?  I mean lets speculate, shall we?

      We don't need speculation when we can look at actual results.  The security guard did her job.

      To speculate further on someone we should consider a hero might shoot next seems rather bigoted.

        but this church, or so I read, has a gift shop/cafe that generates about $10,000 or so in cash sales every Sunday.

        So they needed armed security guards as a defense against robbery.

        I love a good "right wing Fundies are nuts" comment as much as the next guy.

        But this church, or so it seems, had a perfectly prosaic reason for armed guards.

          Vote with your conscience, O Progressive, for there are many Conservatives who will vote without one.

            Remember when Friday asks the priest "You leave your church open so that any thief could come in?" and the priest says "Especially thieves"

            -Someone could be coming to church, but still have unresolved problems that would make robbing the church coffee shop tempting.

            -Some of Ted Haggard's fellow meth heads may know about the cafe and its supply of ready cash and might be tempted to rob it.

        •  That's true in many churches.... (0+ / 0-)

          When my husband was working as a security guard, he went to certain large churches on Sunday morning, and once the offering bags came out of the sanctuary doors, he accompanied them to the office, watched while they were counted, and locked in the church safe until Monday. Apparently the church hires another guard on Mondays to escort the offering money to the bank.
