Hope you guess my name

"Violent crimes of any sort are tragic enough, but when innocent people are killed in a religious facility or a place of worship, we must voice a collective sense of outrage and demonstrate a renewed commitment to keeping our communities safe." — Colorado Governor Bill Ritter

Wait, shouldn't it be less tragic when people are killed in church? It means they're going straight to heaven. Let's save our collective sense of outrage for the poor bastards killed at strip joints.

Anyway, with the publication of my book just four months away, I'm launching a territorial pissing campaign of posting about Christian pop culture on Huffington Post. Pegging my first entry to a fatal shooting is probably as tackily opportunistic as it gets, but I couldn't pass up this chance to bring up the fascinating and disturbing subject of spiritual warfare.

i found your article on huffingtonpost to be very interesting and a very good read.

but i keep wondering WHY nobody has mentioned that in a (relatively) sleepy town like
Colorado Springs there is an ARMED guard at a church!


i've been to the Springs. seems a pretty docile town, even with the AF academy and all. would i even want to attend a church that felt the need for an armed guard?!?!

i could understand, MAYBE, if it was NY, LA, Oakland or Chicago... maybe. but the Springs? there seems to be something else there...
