House passes bill to increase security for churches, synagogues, and mosques


breaking us news congress

(Worthy News) - The House passed a bill Monday that increases security for churches, synagogues, and mosques amid an increase in the number of targeted attacks on places of worship globally.

The Securing American Nonprofit Organizations Against Terrorism Act of 2019 creates a $75 million grant program under the Department of Homeland Security to financially support the security needs of religious organizations. The bill had wide-ranging support with 86 Democratic co-sponsors and 18 Republican co-sponsors.

“In just the first six months of 2019, the level of bloodshed in places of worship has shocked the world. It’s painfully clear that these houses of worship are under threat of violence committed by terrorists of all extreme ideologies,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the sponsor of the bill. “Synagogues, mosques, and churches need our help and protection just to stay safe. Nobody should feel threatened while praying."
