3. Boy, am I naive. When I read the titile of this post, I thought....

...it would be a black church that had been threatened by their white Christian "brethren" from up the street. What could I have been thinking. The historical perspective about this particular flavor of presbyterians, going back to the Civil War, is no surprise. Just upscale southern baptists I guess.

4. I see nothing in this article regarding rationale.

Why does this "church" feel that it needs a "police force"?

On edit: Wouldn't the security they already have suffice? This is a very greasy slope.
