JANESVILLE—Two men disguised with Bibles and suit coats pushed their way into a south-side home Friday morning and made off with cash, police said.
The resident saw both men carrying Bibles and so felt safe in opening the door, said Sgt. Chuck Aagaard of the police department.
The men pushed their way into the house in the 1600 block of Joliet Street, pulled handguns and demanded money, Aagaard said.

OK, you do have to go low to pull this kind of thing. But it is precisely why this example is a darned good teaching point: You don’t know what your attacker will look like.
That does not mean that if people nicely dressed with bibles in hand knock at your door, you get to pull the shotgun and hold them till the police arrives…even if they are Jehovah’s Witnesses.
And to the robbers that used such low trickery, a message from Shepherd Book:

That’s lower than the ones that dress up as cops.
I had a couple of well dressed young men show up last week. They were Mormon missionaries. They sure eyeballed the 1911 on my belt. Nice kids, I was trying to take a nap so I sent them on their way.
An almost naked fat guy going to the door for the Jehovah’s and Mormons works better than anything else. I haven’t been bothered by the Mormons in 15/16 years and the JW’s haven’t been back in about 5.
For all the Mormons and JWs want to believe they’re Christian sects, I’ve found that an astute understanding of the content, meaning, and philosophy inside the Bible scares them off pretty well, too.
For the other kind, I’ve got my authentic WW2 M1911A1 that I keep by my computer desk.
