In other words, what abuses are they planning to commit? Do they want to hold uncooperative family members in custody when they refuse to go to church? Arrest women for "inappropriate" dress? Just plain shoot people they don't like?

I wondered the same. My guess is they are trying to close the gap between separation of church and state. They have never had a better opportunity than right now, with so many like-minded politicians in seats of high power.

RE: Alabama church would like its own police force
First thing.
How much crime is going on at this church ?
What kind of crimes ?

Are there people conning people out of their money on a weekly basis ?

How often are they calling the police ?
If anything, just hire more policeman for the city as a whole.

There is no organization, nor business that needs their own police force, unless they simply don't want the expense of hiring security guards.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Reminds me of the reaction when you point out to the believers how shaky their faith really is. They get confused and the fog lifts when you point to the lightning rod on the steeple.

Cover up? Really? Paranoid much?

I admit it's possible, but I mean, look at the Catholic Church. They've had their own private police force for centuries and they've never covered up ANYTHING.

RE: Alabama church would like its own police force
As others have said, a blatant violation of separation of church and state. It's bad enough when local police cruisers, like back home, put "in God we trust" stickers on in place of "serve and protect". In the U.S., corrections has actually been given a shot under religious guidance before, and it went horribly*...so let's not try law enforcement.

The Quakers were behind the penitentiary system. They hoped that people would be able to repent of their sins/crimes in total isolation with only the Bible to read and transported around the prison with head fully covered so they couldn't see anyone, on the rare times they were allowed out to exercise. The results were basically a lot of people went crazy; turns out reading the Bible as a penance method isn't that good, particularly when most of the population is illiterate.

Ever notice how much my Pope looks like the High Sparrow?

Y'know, the Nazi party had its own police force, the Communist party had its own police force, ...

I'm seeing some parallels. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

RE: Alabama church would like its own police force
No reason at all for church to get it's own police force. Or maybe they have a reason but I doubt that reason would be acceptable to general, not indoctrinated public.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
