Again, rifle shot proof protective material is available for rather reasonable cost -- and lowers insurance premiums. I agree that it is a shame that churches have to protect themselves in this way, but the fact is that there are a lot of people who hate Christianity -- both conservative and liberal. There are also a lot of kids who have nothing better to do and whose parents are clueless as to where they are and what they are doing -- and don't seem to care.

For Pete's sake, people!

This is a matter of local vandalism in a small Scottish Episcopal Church, in Selkirk, Scotland.

It has nothing to do with either American values or The Episcopal Church in the U.S.A.
