    Church torched for conducting services during COVID lockdown

    Good to see that the arsonist cares so deeply for other people's health.

    "A Mississippi church that has been vocal in its opposition to local coronavirus lockdown policies has suffered an arson attack allegedly motivated by anger over the church standing up for its First Amendment rights.
    “First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs was destroyed by what investigators believe is an arsonist. Investigators found graffiti on pavement in the church parking lot that reads, ‘Bet you stay home now you hypokrits (sic),'” Jackson station WLBT reported Wednesday."

    A tall tree and short rope come to mind.

    This is tragic. I am glad no one was hurt. I hope they find whoever did this put them away for the rest of their days.

    But even in the darkest of times, I can't pass up the cheap shot: So they are looking for someone in Mississippi who can't spell. That doesn't narrow it down much...

    Violent hypocrites abound and always have. From the people who shoot and kill doctors who work at abortion clinics because they don't believe in murder, to .....well you know at least part of the never ending long list of them.

    Assaults against Christians have been on the rise. This has nothing to do with Covid. Just the trigger for the arsonist.
    I find supremely ironic that God in his wisdom and grace has given man freedom of choice bounded by 10 simple rules. Man in his finite wisdom has created millions of rules to limit freedom of choice and the personal responsibility of his fellow man.

    This is America. I have the right to go places. You have the right to stay home. You have the right to be upset about me going places. I have the right to not care.

    First, I'm glad that no one was in the church or hurt at the time of that fire.

    Second, they need to throw that person(s) that done it under the jail for starting a fire and for burning down a church.

    Pitiful!

    I reckon that feller will answer for his action - if not in this life, later, when he becomes an undocumented voter.

    Church burners get really "peesed awf" about "hypokrits".

    I read about this today, but something about it doesn't pass the smell test.

    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.

    That's okay. Plenty of folks around to take up the slack.

    Could have been done by some disgruntled Sunday schooler.

    Expect more of this and they won't just be targeting religious institutions.
    Just imagine it getting close to election time and then after should the "wrong" candidate win.
