Instead of peacefully providing a safe haven for observances of faith, places of worship in the U.S. are beginning to prepare for the worst amid the recent events in the War on Terror, experts told Hollie McKay of Fox News. 

 “I’m pretty sure there will be attacks in the future,” International Christian Concern president Jeff King told McKay. “Until [radical Islam is defeated], we can expect Christians, including in the West, to rationally tighten security measures and try to protect themselves from attack.”

Two men operating for ISIS killed a Normandy, France, priest, slitting his throat in open church in late July, signaling places of worship as potential targets for terror in the U.S. and abroad.
