My father, during his pastoring life, had confrontations with gunmen four times - once was a robbery during the church service, the other times were personal, i.e., a husband or father did not approve of the association of a female family member with the church.
However, I do believe the current anti-religious bent of the press and certain institutions offers an “excuse” to those with loose screws.
Agree. Unbelievers don't see the difference between Bible-based churches and non-Bible-based churches. They hate them all. I think it was yesterday that police shot an armed man who was preparing to attack a Christian radio station.
Obviously we don't have the details yet, but the anti-Christian fervor that's building in this country and being fanned daily by the MSM, could easily have played a role.
