Church Violence

I suspect that your fellowship or church probably would not like to talk openly with the congregation about this particular topic.  I envision this type of question being asked at a congregational meeting:  to the elders;  “do we have in place a “home security plan” or a security plan of some sort in the event that a “crazie” comes into our midst with violence on his/her mind”?  I would not expect an in depth answer from the leadership but would be satisfied with a simple “yes” or “no”. the event of a negative answer, an inquiry into the leadership’s desires to pursue a plan would be in order.

I sent the linked article to a dear friend whose advice I cherish.  He and I attend different churches that both preach repentance and turning to God.  His summation was that all “violence should be repented of ”.  This particular thought in my warped mind created this topics cartoon “du jour”.  I told him that I would split the profits for this cartoon with him since it was his inspiration that brought it about. ($0.00 / $0.00 = $0.00)
