Ah I forget. Damn you are right this thread is a bit derailed.
Criminals are opportunists and the fact that the odds of someone on the church carrying something that will aid to self defence, or offence, is slim. Low-risk, high reward opportunity.
I hear that often that people will say to others "Yes this and that probably happened because God is testing you or is trying to tell you something". Hence asking what message God was trying to send by having people robbed at a place of worship. Perhaps that is a trolling question but no less valid in the context of what many religious folk say, though.
Edit. my info was incorrect, so I retract this even though I still believe the essence of it.
