Bible Bandits

In the category of “Is nothing sacred anymore?” comes this story from the Huntsville Times today.

Bible Bandits robbing Churches of Christ and Baptists at gunpoint in broad daylight? What’s next, Ocean’s Twelve ripping off the contribution?

Sounds to me like someone needs to “go forward” next Sunday.

    wow, gunpoint. I remember we got an email from the receptionist at Twickenham CoC saying they were robbed – I believe overnight, not during the day – and had some stuff stolen. I think that was in January.

    Not only did they steal, but vandalized as well in the instance of Twickenham. And Twickenham, as you know, has an alarm system, so I’m not sure what happened there.

  3. GREG

    Yeah, I remember it got broken into once before, when we were there. They’d smashed a window and stolen a TV and other things from the youth area.

    They may need to look into a new alarm system 🙂

    Maybe they could hire this guy to do their security.

    For a while, our offices were being burglarized almost weekly. Never lost much, but it was irritating to have to be replacing windows all the time. Now we have bars over the windows and it looks like a minimum security detention center … not very inviting for a church, but the burglaries have ceased. Except for the one at our house last year when they hit us hard for some very emotionally valuable things, not to mention my lap top.

    Sl, sorry to hear about that. Sounds like a rough neighborhood.

    Take my rings and my watches, but please, oh please not my computer!
