An Alabama MegaChurch will form it’s own police force thanks to a new law permitting the church to do so in order to protect itself.
The law was signed by Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, and authorizes the Briarwood Presbyterian to “appoint and employ one or more suitable persons to act as police officers to protect the property of the school or academy.”
The bill four years ago didn’t pass as members in the Alabama State legislature claimed it was tied to racism.
The PCA (Presbyterian Church Academy) originated in the 1970s in Alabama.
In 2016 the church apologized for “racial sins” that included “the segregation of worshipers by race” as well as “the participation in and defense of white supremacist organizations,” the report says.
The Church has over 4,100 members, and two schools with over 2,000 students.
They say it is necessary to keep their congregation and student body safe.
