By Chuck Norris. A decade ago, there were roughly only 10 incidents of church violence across the U.S. In 2007, there were 41 incidents. In 2009, there were 108. In 2012, there were more than 135. And by mid-July 2013, there were already 58. Much media attention has been given of late to the Louisiana pastor who was shot and killed a few weeks ago during a church service at the Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center.
