The Anglican church which comprises about over 71,000 worshippers are now going to conduct a series of emergency meeting in light of reports of alleged death threats against Christians by the Islamic State.
The sudden scare was brought on by national, Shane Crawford who was featured in an ISIS propaganda publication, calling on supporters to destroy Christian disbelievers.
Crawford, who was detained during the 2011 State of Emergency, also appears to confirm that former Prime Minister Kamla Persad- Bissessar was a target, saying it would have been “an honour” to attempt the assassination.
Bishop Claude Berkley said the statutory meetings are needed to ensure that intense and serious discussions rapidly change the security landscape.
Berkley said they will have to examine all of the reports and take the necessary steps to safe guard the lives of innocent citizens.
Berkley said a church is a place of care and we have to guarantee this kind of environment.
