    I could be wrong, but we've been snookered before. I'll wait to see what the investigation turns up.

    I'm kind of all out of outrage right now, I guess.

    Nazi's doing what Nazi's do.
    Remember all the synagogues burned in Germany in the 1930's.
    Now they are using a virus to stop religious freedoms in this country.
    Okay for 200 people to go to wally world but you can't go to church.
    And damn you if you want to sing.
    I don't recognize my country anymore.
    Time to fight back before it is too late.

    The church-torcher could be anybody--left, right, deep-state, false flag, church hater, distraction, anti-religion, anybody for any number of reasons.

    True, but I will take an educated guess on who it was.
    Especially with the message they left.
    Something about it walking and talking like a duck.

    Should have just had church legally at Walmart I guess. Could this be the opening shot of civil war? I hope not. Fortunately, our church is opening this Sunday to limited members. Next Sunday it is opening up fully, as restrictions are being cut. Helps to live in a free country. Sorry to hear about the folks in Mississippi.

    Fellow Missourian here. I agree. Our officials here don't seem to have a problem remembering that we are free people and should be treated with courtesy.

    You beat me to this. Due to a long LE career I read these stories with an open mind. I have a feeling if an arrest is made the church may not like the end result. Have seen crap like this end up in a direction no one thought was possible.

    With the fear being peddled, the anti-Christian war that has ramped up in the last decade, the list of suspects could be the vast majority of that community.

    The arsonist needs to be caught and punished. There are some lines that should never be crossed.

    Personally, I hope that they find the arsonist and charge them with a hate crime. But, there is no telling what direction the investigation will take. It might be someone who is furious that the church is spreading the virus as well as the gospel, and had the audacity to file a lawsuit opposing the local restrictions, all the way to the church leadership because they want to gain sympathy for their lawsuit. Not sure which extreme will disgust me more.

    I'm more leaning towards some deranged Liberal who hates all things Conservative, no matter how that manifests itself.

    Of course it could be a member of the church trying to bring some sort of weird attention to it. We've seen that in the past, especially with racial, "hate crimes".
