'In the last 10 days, five black churches have been set on fire in the St. Louis area. And unlike the last wave of black church fires this summer in which weather played a role in some of the fires, these all appear to be the work of arsonists. The lack of media coverage about these fires is highly-noticeable, given the media’s hyper-intensive coverage of rioters in Baltimore setting fire to a CVS earlier this year.

“It is arson,” St. Louis Fire Department captain Garon Mosby told Fox 2 Saint Louis. “These are being intentionally set.”'

Christian or not, this horrendous and I'm sadden and outraged that this is not being covered more in the press. Seriously, this was the first time I heard of this. And I really hate that these assholes are not only endangering and killing innocent people, they are add fuel to the fire. Most people want justice and peace in Ferguson, not this bullcrap. This reminds me of that church bombing that Spike Lee did a documentary on. It  just feels like history is repeating itself over and over again, and that's just down right sad.

Sadly, history is repeating itself. The number of church arson cases seems to be noticeably up the past few years. Most in the south and most black churches. :(

These church arsons have nothing to do with race, but are part of the War on Christians™. Everybody knows that racial disparity and inequality are a thing of the past, because Obama.

Sorry about that. I was momentarily possessed by Fox News.

(But I will give you odds that some notable right-winger is spinning it that way)
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

I don't take sucker bets no matter how good of odds I'm given. You know some tea party conservative is spouting that line.

You're were joking, but It's pretty damn infuriating that there is a portion of Americans who really think that is the truth.  What is the world coming too! *shakes my cane*
