Most churches, synagogues, mosques, and other houses of worship are built to withstand forced entry. Most have heavy wood or metal doors. Windows tend to be high off the ground. A majority passes wrought-iron fences that can serve as added protection. However, the protection they offer during an outbreak will never be enough against the zombies that are sure to come. The walking dead attack churches for one good reason: it's where the food is. Despite their education, technical savvy, and professed disinterest in the spiritual world, urban Americans run, screaming to their gods, at the first sight of zombies. These places of worship, crammed with people loudly praying for their souls, have always served as beacons for the undead.
