Over the past several days I have been reading reports of armed guards at IHOP. Most disturbing is that some of these reports indicate that there are armed guards IN THE PRAYER ROOM. I am posting the comments below. If ANYONE has information about this please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like more verification on this! Thank you!

“While visiting IHOP in KC, MO on a Sunday last summer, I was very surprised to see not only about a half dozen uniformed, armed guards, but even a church patrol car” Source
Marshall posted a comment on the article “IHOP: The International House of Horror”
“Every time I go to the gas station across from that church, and see an IHOP security guard getting coffee at the same time as me, I ask him the same question every time: “Why does a church need armed security guards?” I’ve asked him three or four times now, and the first couple of times he got defensive and tried to pull some intimidation and alpha-male bullshit on me, to no avail. And yes, they have their own IHOP armed security squad, armed to the teeth.”
And this one was sent to me by a friend who has a blog and received this in an email:
”I have a facebook page criticizing them, and I was tweeting in their chatrooms, I was praying when a gentleman asked me to come outside, I said sure, he asked me my name, I told him ,then he lied and said the grandview police wanted to talk to me. it was a lie, I told them I had already and would love to talk to any police about this matter, so I went to my car, two early 20′s IHOP guards armed with 9 millimeters, tasers, battons ect. they grabbed me and slammed me against the wall outside of the prayer room, they handcuffed me, then called the police, it was cold and took 2 hours for the police to show up, when they did IHOP had copies of my FB page and showed the police. they immediately instructed then to let me go.”
Is IHOP a potential Jonestown or Waco Tx? Why does a prayer room need armed security grards? With their fanatical end times theology (Mike Bickle teaching that they are going to “pray in the tribulation”) maybe they are getting ready for some serious fighting?
