Alabama Burning!


The ATF has started investigating a series of arsons involving nine churches in rural areas of Alabama.

While there were no injuries in the any of the fires, two churches were destroyed, the Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church in Greene County and the Dancee Baptist Church in Pickens County. Two other churches in Sumter County were damaged, the Galilee Baptist Church and the Spring Valley Baptist Church.


These fires, in conjuction with five fires in Bibb, Co., has caused the ATF to activate one of it's Natioal Response Teams (NRT), bringing the total number of ATF personnel on the scene to more than 50. Although all of the churches are Baptist, there are black and white churches burned. It is believed the fires were started by the same person(s) The fires were all started on the alter with a lighter.
CNN has a slideshow and video

Foxnews has more

Agents investigating the Bibb County fire were looking for a dark-colored SUV, possibly a Nissan Pathfinder, in connection with the blazes.
At Boligee, Archibald said he was told by a resident that an SUV was seen running through an intersection near the church without stopping

Somebody has a serious issue with the Baptist church. It seems that most authorities discount any Muslim connection and I would have to agree with this because why else would it only be Baptist churches.
Crazy World

Kevin..you stated that you thought there were moderates in Islamic countries but that they just weren't in power. Unfortunately I completely disagree. If there is a moderate voice, it has been silent for too long. These demonstrations against caricatures of Mohammed show exactly the extreme beliefs of the vast majority.
The church bombings are definitely a mystery. I don't see how a single individual would be able to carry out multiple arsons on so many targets. This latest round is small in comparison to the one that preceded it. Hopefully this individual will soon be caught. I'm sure he will be a source of entertainment for his fellow inmates. I hope for his sake that ky-jelly is sold at the prison commissary.
We should exchange links...let me know if you're interested.

AC,
I agree, Muslims would have hit at least one Synagogue. It appears to be the work of a lone wacko, but why?

IW,
I've been meaning to ad you to my blogroll, I'll get right on it.
In re; Moderates,
I think the moderates are of little consequence because they are powerless at the hands of their own bretheren. I don't however believe that Islam itself is moderate and have tried to post as much evidence in that regard as possible. The Koran and hadith should be all the evidence we need to relagate Islam as a cult and remove it's religious protection under the Constitution.

WHT,
I hope your right and I hope it's just a lone wacko and not a coordinated attack. I've been trying to find a good local source in ALA, I want to see how this one unfolds.
