Since 1999, when a gunmen killed 7 young people at Wedgewood Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, there have been over 630 deadly force incidents at faith-based organizations in the United States that have resulted in 423 deaths. In addition, over 140 dead bodies have been found on church property.
Another disturbing statistic is the number of children sexually assaulted while at church or a church-related function. Recent estimates are 70 children a week are victims of sex crimes in faith-based organizations. Something must be done to stop all of this violence in God’s house.
