By All That’s Holy–Armed Guards at Britney Spears’ Church

FBLA understands that, in certain parts of the planet, religous expression frequently takes a violent tone. But in Bel Air? At a Presbyterian church? Sadly, yes, when Britney Spears is the worshiper.

A trigger-happy security guard pulled a gun on terrified photographer who was waiting to take a picture of the singer. The photog assumed the position, was cuffed and then probably called Marty Singer. The church director said, “I cannot speak for the security officer, but he does not regret it. This is a church, not a concert.”

Bel Air Presbyterian is the show-biz Protestant church, where President Reagan attended and PR exec. Jonathan Bock is a deacon.
