Nobody Expects The Alabama Inquisition!

The Alabama State Senate is allowing churches to form their own police departments.

Apparently the priests have had enough of the empty collection plates.

Lawmakers on Tuesday voted 24-4 to allow Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham to establish a law enforcement department. The church says it needs its own police officers to keep its school as well as its more than 4,000 person congregation safe.

The state has given a few private universities the authority to have a police force, but never a church or non-school entity.

The church officers’ duties include escorting crying babies to the punishment room, tasering parishioners who fall asleep, and enforcing the No-Whore dress code.

  1. The dress code was a reality in my Baptist church growing up. I had to go before the board first because my skirt was too short and the second time for wearing black stockings. Yes, I was a wild child by conservative Baptist standards.

  2. Ditto on the God’s House, not whorehouse. I know just what you mean.

    I am not quite sure I agree with this church police force thing. What’s wrong with using regular cops? If you need additional security, either hire guards or have trained volunteers. The one place I NEVER ever go unarmed is to church. I feel it is my obligation to assist in the protection of my family and everyone in my church is my family. I doubt most of them even know I carry, but the Pastor does and he’s good with the idea. He also is the possessor of his own CCW, but he is not armed there, he leaves that up to a few select others.

    Matt 10:34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.

    Luke 22:36 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.

    But… an official police department? To each his own I guess.
