    This seems whacked on many levels...one being why would someone want to attend a service and wonder if some overly "trained" idiot would decide they were an enemy?

    Members of Bossier Parish churches trained with sheriff's deputies Saturday to prepare themselves for the unlikely event someone might threaten their congregations with violence.



    In the first of several planned Church Security Training Sessions at the Bossier sheriff's gun range, the 20 trainees sat through several classroom hours before taking their weapons to the range.
    The class follows a law that went into effect in July allowing guns to be carried inside houses of worship across the state. Those attending already held concealed-carry permits and have experience with guns.
    "Over the past several years, the violence has gotten worse and worse" said Jim Middleton, a retired member of the Elm Grove Baptist Church in south Bossier Parish. "I'd rather be proactive than working after the fact. We're all in God's army, and you don't see any army going to war unarmed."
    Middleton said his church has discussed security, including possibly adding a security detail to services. He said he wanted to be ready to serve in that capacity if asked.

    Someone trying to murder another person. What, you think he would just be passive?

    Luke 22:36 (Jesus) He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.

    A church in KY had a bring your guns to church day last year. Not sure if it became a regular practice or not.
    Just another example of religion gone wrong.

    Don't know if you ever studied the Bible, but Jesus was God in human form and was capable of anger.
