laws of immunity in a United States Church

Please site your source. If there is a person in a religious building, can the law enter said building and arrest the person? There is conflicting information here but no sources to back it up.

  • It does not matter if they have immunity on earth. The judge will come and they will reap what they have sown. Hallelujah! Blessings..

  • thank you, I ageree very much with you. That is not what I asked. I knew a police could not go into a church, a place of worship, but church property I have never heard of the law stoping at the church property line.

  • Some churches still so use santuary. Out of respect unless it is an iminent sit. the police will wait outside the church to make the arrest.

    If this is in reference to the pope responses no body said they can get sanctuary here they said they can use the Vatican for it.

  • It's more a respect thing then a law. However if the cops are taken to court do to innocent injuries or distroyed property in can be worse.

  • I have looked and find conflicting information as well. From what I gather, it's a gray area dependent on the crime committed and the city in which it was committed. Technically, there is no law that prohibits law enforcement from entering a religious sanctuary to retrieve a criminal.

    The one should've taken you to the definition. The other should have shown you the example of what I was referring. It is a gray area. All you find is conflicting things depending on location and church.
