    I have a concealed carry California CCW license. I carry my 9 mm Smith and Wesson MP Shield into church with me. When I'm a Reader, I take it off and it's in my wife's purse as I go into the sanctuary. But otherwise, I have it on. There are mosques up in Fresno and actually a good crop of Muslims. I don't trust them or the awful neighborhood our church is in. I carry. Yes, even in California you still can! Hard to believe here in the People's Republik of Kalifornia.

    As the man on the radio earlier; 'today is a Saturday, we shall do what we always do, eat cheese and drink wine.'
    It is the victory of the attack for the populace to live in fear.

    Please, I pray, this is not the unravelling of Europe.
    The elephant in my mind is the word 'savages'. Let us not stoop to their rationale.

    Avoiding politics in geo-political thread....nope, unavoidable. Radical Islam is the terror of our time. We can fight it or lay down and let it consume us all. How can we avoid the politics of this?

    Matthew 6:5

    And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.

    A statement from Bishop Anthony of the Antiochians:

    A special note to some of our other commenters, I suppose. Esp. re: barbarism and their loss of humanity.

    From the orthodox cathedral in Paris:

    This is quoted from somebody else, so I can't vouch for the French translation.

    I would just say that most of us have avoided talking politics on this thread, so you could do the same. Hope that helps. Have a nice day.

    Gurney right we can pray for France all we want but the French and the west need to turn back to GOD. After this terror are the churches packed in France? sadly not really, France is the model of a secular Progressive utopia, and now we see the consequences. Also it saddens me how some Orthodox Christians online literally have their heads in the sand concerning Islamic fundamentalism, despite the fact that Islamists are killing or have killed Christians in Egypt, Russia, Bosnia, Iraq, Occupied Kosovo, Kenya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sudan, and so fourth. We need to wake up quick and realize we have a enemy proabably worse than the Nazis or Commies, even jews, buddhists and hindus are facing the problem of Islam. Wake up folks!
