Jamaica: It’s time for pastors to arm themselves – Bishop Edwards

Organiser of the annual 10,000 Men and Family’s March in Spanish Town, Bishop Rohan Edwards, said the time has come for pastors to arm themselves to protect their congregation from vicious men.

Speaking against the background of Sunday’s killing at the Agape Worship Centre in Falmouth, Trelawny, where 51-year-old Andrea Lowe- Garwood was brutally slain by a lone gunman while worshipping, Edwards called on pastors to put in place all the necessary security features in churches to protect worshippers.
