Yours truly has heard it said that before American military commanders and soldiers in recent wars were going to bomb an enemy-controlled territory, also occupied with supposedly-innocent civilians, they would drop copious amounts of warning leaflets from aircraft stating when the devastation was scheduled to begin.
That was done so that those civilians who wanted to save their lives could hide out and come through the attack alive. Of course, the enemy also received some of those warning leaflets, and planned accordingly with pre-assault defensive precautions of all sorts.
What would have been better (albeit insurmountably difficult), I suppose, would be to selectively warn (with discretionary discrimination) only those who deserved to be spared annihilation...and even though they might not have fully supported the objectives of the Americans, those who believed the GIs could have acted accordingly to preserve not merely themselves but also items of survival worth saving.
Minimize the collateral damage pertaining to human resources, while waging a war of attrition.
Were such leaflet-drop warnings prudent? Were they really necessary? Was it fair to those who were forced to promptly burrow in or relocate....or else?
Genesis 18:17 The LORD said, "Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do,
18 seeing that Abraham shall become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall bless themselves by him?
19 No, for I have chosen him, that he may charge his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice; so that the LORD may bring to Abraham what He has promised him."
20 Then the LORD said, "Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great and their sin is very grave,
21 I will go down to see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry which has come to Me; and if not, I will know." [As Batman's Robin would exclaim: 'Holy Reconnaisance!']
22 So the men turned from there, and went toward Sodom; but Abraham still stood before the LORD.
23 Then Abraham drew near, and said, "Will You indeed destroy the righteous with the wicked? [and so "throw the (proverbial) baby out with the bathwater?"]
24 Suppose there are fifty righteous within the city; will You then destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous who are in it?
25 Far be it from You to do such a thing, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous fare as the wicked! Far be that from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?"
26 And the LORD said, "If I find at Sodom fifty righteous in the city, I will spare the whole place for their sake."
27 Abraham answered, "Hey, I have taken upon myself to speak to the Lord, I who am but dust and ashes. [patronizing Him?]
28 Suppose five of the fifty righteous are lacking? Will You destroy the whole city for lack of five?" And He said, "I will not destroy it if I find forty-five there."
29 Again he spoke to Him, and said, "Suppose forty are found there." [trying to "jew Him down!"] He answered, "For the sake of forty I will not do it."
30 Then he said, "Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak. Suppose thirty are found there." [What a bargainer!] He answered, "I will not do it, if I find thirty there."
31 He said, "Hey, I have taken upon myself to speak to the Lord. Suppose twenty are found there." [Abe just doesn't give up!] He answered, "For the sake of twenty I will not destroy it."
32 Then he said, "Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak again but this once. Suppose ten are found there." [How far will Abe go? Sounds like an auction!] He answered, "For the sake of ten I will not destroy it."
33 And the LORD went His way, when He had finished speaking to Abraham; and Abraham returned to his place.
Genesis 41:25 Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, "The dream of Pharaoh is one; God has revealed to Pharaoh what he is about to do. [Sounds like the old man, Abe]
28 It is as I told Pharaoh, God has shown to Pharaoh what He is about to do. [So don't incriminate nor blame me for an Act of God!]
First Samuel 3:11 Then the LORD said to Samuel, "Hey, I am about to do a thing in Israel, at which the two ears of every one that hears it will tingle."
And The Atomic Bombs went off over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But they were amply warned, and diehard Jap kamakazes were exterminated in horrified shock and astonishment.
Ezekiel 3:18 If I say to the wicked, 'You shall surely die,' and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand.
19 But if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you will have saved your life.
21 Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man not to sin [preaching to the choir?], and he does not sin, he shall surely live, because he took warning; and you will have saved your life."
33:8 If I say to the wicked, wicked man, you shall surely die, and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.
9 But if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way; he shall die in his iniquity, but you will have saved your life.
All of us are rather used to seeing warning signs of all types, such as "No Trespassing: Military Testing Ground" plus Skull-and-Crossbones Poison and High Voltage signs at fenced-in electrical substations.
We generally take such warning signs seriously, and simply stay away.
Such would understandably be the case if a brave and courageous pure-minded church pastor (be he fundamentalist islamic within a mosque, orthodox-Jewish, Knights of Columbus Catholic, or Amish Protestant) decides to not merely mail warning letters....a couple times.....weeks in advance.....to those of his congregation who are registered as members with that particular church...but also post warning posters on the church-door entrance to whoever of the general public is inclined to wander onto the premises and into the sanctuary -- and, to top it off, have a security guard present to restrict access to eligible persons while preventing entrance to those not acceptable.
Such selective discrimination is not unheard of even nowadays and is completely understandable for many types of military, covert and other governmental agencies, private business or religious groups and organizations. Whatever is public-domain non-specified is free and open to the general public without restriction, admission tickets, identification card or badge.
Some groups possess Bonafide Occupational Qualifications which disallow, for example, persons of either gender with loose long hair from working in public food preparation outlets without a hairnet on. Some require sleeves, slacks, and socks while working within sensitive surgical, other medical, or assembly operations requiring strict sanitary conditions.
"It's a free country?" "Nobody's going to boss me around?"
First Corinthians 8:9 Only take care lest this [being attired wearing whatever clothing styles and fashions, colors, or fabric-materials you like] liberty of yours somehow become a stumbling block to the [erotically] weak.
Whatever the professed or non-admitted motivations for it, the "Guns Not Allowed Inside Building," "No Soliciting," "Anti-Noise Ordinance Enforced," "No Smoking Within 25 Feet of Building Entrance" type prohibition signs stand on the entrance doors of many businesses and stores, applicable to the general public, and even (as much as possible) law-enforcement officers:
It's either going to be the tyranny of excessively-punitive sharia law, or instead the righteous justice of a literal interpretation and literal application of Judeo-Christian Torah (and additionally-Biblical) Law.
Getting back to the fundamentalist religious leader (be he moslem, orthodox Jew, protestant, etc.) in the religious mosque, synagogue, or church...such leader is authorized -- by his chosen religious text and bible -- to insist upon and require generally-accomodating particularly-female congregants to be attired modestly with burka or hijab shawls and robes, or equivalent consisting of long hair tied back up in a chignon or pug or bound in a back-of-head ponytail, long-sleeved blouses or dresses, long non-slitted skirts or roomy slacks instead of shortened skirts or shorts, and socks worn underneath flipflops or sandals or whatever.
The previously-mentioned warning letters mailed to known congregants, plus the warning signs posted on the church-entrance door, plus the security guard controlling access to the interior of the mosque, synagogue, or church should be adequate prohibition against (not "for") those trouble-causers intending attempts to violate what is clearly already legally established with no harm whatsoever done (by sundry exclusionary declarations) against the community around such a religious facility.
Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted [visually harassed and abusively molested/assaulted by mopheaded and other body-parts-exposure immodesty]; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives [irritated and erotically incited by loose-long-haired and/or sleevesless and/or slacksless and/or soxless lewd exhibitionists], and the opening of the prison to those who are bound [with the lurid presence of porno-immodest nutcases rife and reeking with "everybody's doing it" "I get hot in seasonably warm weather," "I want to show off my tan," "we're all free from legalistic Law, from majoring in minors, from being hung up on trifling incidentals, and instead we're under (licentuous-idolatry) God-is-unconditional-love-who-with-broadminded-tolerance-takes-me-just-as-I-am grace" irrationalizations].
Luke 4:18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives [ditto within Isaiah 61:1] and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed [ditto within Isaiah 61:1]....
In the case of a terrorist-like female individual or group of them let in but then causing adisruptively-immodest public-nuisance stripshow who disturb the peace, both ushers and security guard are in a position of delegated authority to confront the offender or offenders point blank and firmly make a verbal request for them to leave the building. If such offender or offenders refuse to promptly cooperate, the mulla or rabbi or pastor of the religious facility has the immediate choice of either command the ushers or security guard to physically remove the offender or offenders out of the building, or instead call 911 and have the police or sheriff do it instead.
Any false and superfluous accusations of "hate crime" illegal discrimination will probably never hold up in civil court, and counter-suing offenders who claim "hate-crime" infraction is possible against the offender's unlawful or public-nuisance partial indecent exposure, plus trespassing.
Acts 28:18 When they had examined me, they wished to set me at liberty, because there was no reason for the death penalty in my case.
Not only that, but the present FBI definition of a "hate crime" consists of not simply verbal or written speech, but must also consist of unlawfully-assaultive action committed without official authorization.
Other forms of punishment, some of extended duration and with far-reaching possibly-permanent effects, can be done and enforced against an offender or offenders....such as letters snail-mailed or e-mailed to relatives, employers, insurance companies, government agencies existing to investigate such situations, plus postings on Facebook along with other national-and-even-global internet cyberlistings.
Thus, an offender's retort of: "You, and whose army?" can be thoroughly and exhaustively answered in more ways than one...such as:
"There are PLENTY of other places of religious worship you can instead attend and donate to." [which might be something the deviant tards never thought of]
Conveyance of mandatory prohibitions can - however - be thoughtful, considerate, and polite:
Deuteronomy 32:2 May my teaching drop as the rain, my speech distil as the dew, as the gentle rain upon the tender grass, and as the showers upon the herb.
First Timothy 3:2 Now a bishop must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, sensible, dignified, hospitable, an apt teacher,
3 no drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, and no lover of money.
4 He must manage his own household well, keeping his children submissive and respectful in every way;
5 for if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how can he care for God's church?
6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may be puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of The Devil;
7 moreover he must be well thought of by outsiders, or he may fall into reproach and the snare of The Devil.
8 Deacons likewise must be serious, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for gain;
10 And let them also be tested first [why question me?]; then if they prove themselves blameless let them serve as deacons.
12 Let deacons be the husband of one wife, and let them manage their children and their households well...
James 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, without uncertainty or insincerity.
First Peter 2:18 Servants [employees], be submissive to your masters [employers] with all respect [no greed-based unions-funded slowdowns nor striking?], not only to the kind and gentle but also to the overbearing [Obama/Pelosi/Reid with his/her/his forced-health-insurance-purchase/forced-preexisting-conditions Obamascare, "Don't-Ask-Don't-Tell"-repeal homopromo, and two High-Court-feminist-judgette appointees].
First Peter 3:1 Likewise you wives, be submissive to your husbands, so that some, though they do not obey the word, may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives,
2 when they see your reverent and chaste behavior.
3 Let not yours be the outward adorning with broiding of hair, decoration of gold, and wearing of "fine" [extravagantly-overpriced and expensively-income-depleting egotistically-showoff] clothing,
4 but let it be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable jewel of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.
Exodus 33:19 And he said, "I will make all my goodness pass before you, and will proclaim before you My name 'The LORD'; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.
34:6 The LORD passed before him, and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness...
Second Kings 13:23 But the LORD was gracious to them and had compassion on them [which antisemitic Adolf Hitler did NOT], and He turned toward them, because of His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob [righteously-conniving Jacob rather than God's-birthright-despising "palestinian"/arab Esau, which 'Israel' successfully wrestled with the Lord's angel and got The Blessing?], and would not destroy them; nor has He cast them from His presence until now.
Second Chronicles 30:9 For if you return to the LORD, your brethren and your children will find compassion with their captors, and return to this land. For the LORD your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away His [not "Her"] face from you, if you return to Him [not "Her"].
Nehemiah 9:31 Nevertheless in Your great mercies You did not make an end of them nor forsake them; for You are a gracious and merciful God.
Proverbs 22:11 He who loves purity of heart, and whose speech is gracious, will have the king [Nero, Lenin, Castro, Stalin, Mussolini, A-mini-jihad of Iran, Hitler, Obama, etc.] as his friend.
Joel 2:13 ...and rend your hearts and not your garments [i.e. do not tear and thus expose your body-parts-hiding clothes]." Return to the LORD, your God, for He [not "She"] is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, and relents of doing retaliatory "evil."
Amos 5:15 Hate [HATE?] evil, and love good, and establish justice in the gate; it may be [i.e. perhaps] that the LORD, the God of hosts, will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph [plagiarist and counterfeit-christ Mohammed not in The Bloodline].
[ Let's not have any "love crimes" NOR "hate crimes!" -- BOTH are bad]
Colossians 4:6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer every one:
Matthew 23:17 You blind fools! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that has made the gold sacred?
First Corinthians 5:13 For those who are outside, God judges. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
The aforementioned leaflets-like pre-warnings are, of course, much better than a pastor - standing at his pulpit - suddenly and without previous warning, verbally targeting (from the pulpit) all girls and women (in general) sitting within his congregational audience who are contaminating the entire assembly with their obscene loose long hair, naked-armed sleeveslessness, nude-legged slackslessness, and soxlessness.....or (and even more confrontationally) stepping down from his pulpit and going over to each offensive female individually to proclaim to her and others in the congregation in what ways the offending female is immodestly offensive, then himself personally requesting her to get out immediately, or calling security to escort her out like right now -- regardless of if she or her dad or brother or husband or anyone else nearby voices defensive objection(s) (with or without a malicious and menacing flurry of rapid-fire, off-on-nonfinished-tangents, doctrines-of-demons excuses supposedly justifying her particular immodesty).
Proverbs 9:7 He who corrects a scoffer gets himself abuse, and he who reproves a wicked man incurs injury.
9:8 Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you; reprove a wise man, and he will love you.
13:1 A wise son hears his father's instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
15:12 A scoffer does not like to be reproved; he will not go to the wise.
19:25 Strike a scoffer, and the gullible will learn prudence; reprove a man of understanding, and he will gain knowledge.
21:11 When a scoffer is punished, the gullible become wise; when a wise man is instructed, he gains knowledge.
21:24 "Scoffer" is the name of the proud, haughty man who acts with arrogant pride.
22:10 Drive out [or proverbally: "kick out"] a scoffer, then strife will go out, and quarreling plus abuse will cease.
24:9 The devising of folly is sin, and the scoffer is an abomination to men.
Isaiah 29:20 For the ruthless shall come to nought and the scoffer cease, and all who watch to do evil shall be cut off...
Congregants remaining in the mosque, synagogue, or church who would observe, analyze, and contemplate ouster of an somewhat-indecently-dressed offender or offenders...would momentarily be frozen with fear while perhaps inwardly repulsed by the aggressive and apparent hostility of the mulla, rabbi, or pastor against each offending mophead with indecent hairstyle, and/or any other partially-immodest offender or offenders...all of whom start the whole problem in the first place, and therefore are themselves at fault and to blame.
Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John; since then the good news of the kingdom of God is preached, and every one enters it violently.
Genesis 6:11 Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight, and the earth was filled with violence.
13 And God said to Noah, "I have determined to make an end of all flesh; for the earth is filled with violence through them; hey, I will destroy them with the earth.
Esther 3:5 And when Haman saw that Mordecai did not bow down or do obeisance to him, Haman was filled with fury.
9 And Haman went out that day joyful and glad of heart. But when Haman saw Mordecai in the king's gate, that he neither rose nor trembled before him, he was filled with wrath against Mordecai.
7:10 And the king said, "Hang him on that." So they hanged Haman on the gallows which he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the anger of the king abated.
Isaiah 21:3 Therefore my loins are filled with anguish; pangs have seized me, like the pangs of a woman in travail; I am bowed down so that I cannot hear, I am dismayed so that I cannot see.

Acts 19:29 So the city was filled with the confusion; and they rushed together into the theater, dragging with them Gaius and Aristarchus, Macedonians who were Paul's companions in travel.
But human anger is piffle compared to that of The Almighty:
Second Kings 6:15 When the servant of the man of God rose early in the morning and went out, hey, an army with horses and chariots was round about the city. And the servant said, "Alas, my master! What shall we do?"
16 He said, "Fear not, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them."
17 Then Elisha prayed, and said, "Oh LORD, I pray You, open his eyes that he may see." So the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw; and hey, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
18 And when the Syrians came down against him, Elisha prayed to the LORD, and said, "Strike this people, I pray You, with blindness." So He struck them with blindness in accordance with the prayer of Elisha.
19 And Elisha said to them, "This is not the way, and this is not the city; follow me, and I will bring you to the man whom you seek." And he led them to Samaria.
20 As soon as they entered Samaria, Elisha said, "Oh LORD, open the eyes of these men, that they may see." So the LORD opened their eyes, and they saw; and wow, they were in the midst of Samaria.
21 When the king of Israel saw them he said to Elisha, "My father, shall I slay them? Shall I slay them?"
22 He answered, "You shall not slay them. Would you slay those whom you have taken captive with your sword and with your bow? Set bread and water before them, that they may eat and drink and go to their master."
23 So he prepared for them a great feast; and when they had eaten and drunk, he sent them away, and they went to their master. And the Syrians came no more on raids into the land of Israel.
Second Chronicles 20:15 And he said, "Respond, all Judah and residents of Jerusalem, and King Jehoshaphat: Thus says the LORD to you, 'Fear not, and be not dismayed at this great multitude; for the battle is not yours but God's.
17 You will not need to fight in this battle; take your position, stand still, and see the victory of the LORD on your behalf, Judah and Jerusalem. Fear not, and be not dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, and the LORD will be with you."
Isaiah 10:18 The glory of his forest and of his fruitful land the LORD will destroy, both soul and body, and it will be as when a sick man wastes away.

54:4 "Fear not, for you will not be ashamed; be not confounded, for you will not be put to shame; for you will forget the shame of your youth [in my case, quite shameful indeed!], and the reproach of your widowhood [doesn't apply to me] you will remember no more.
Jeremiah 46:28 "Fear not, Jacob my servant," says the LORD, "for I am with you. I will make a full end of all the nations to which I have driven you, but of you I will not make a full end. I will chasten you in just measure, and I will by no means leave you unpunished."
Nahum 1:9 What do you plot against the LORD? He will make a full end; He will not take vengeance twice on his foes. [no repeat offenders!]
Matthew 10:28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell [with perpetual bodily restoration so there's eternally more to burn in everlasting torment].
Matthew 22:13 Then the king said to the attendants, 'Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into The Outer Darkness [and we might have thought that "black holes" were nasty!]; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.'
30 And cast the worthless servant into The Outer Darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.' [in never-ending solitary confinement]
Luke 16:24 And he called out, 'Father Abraham, have mercy upon me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am in anguish in this flame.' [no bevy of tween/teen nudes nor arm-in-arm beer parties!]
25 But Abraham said, 'Son, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner evil things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish.
Second Thessalonians 1:9 They shall suffer the punishment of eternal destruction and exclusion away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His might....
Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment goes up forever; and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name." [so much for getting the 666 tattoo for commercial commodities and services exchange!]
