Suspect arrested in fires at three black churches in Louisiana

Police have arrested a man suspected of setting fire to three predominantly black churches in a southern Louisiana parish. The suspect’s name was not released. Authorities had said earlier this month they found suspicious ’patterns’ among fires that burned down three churches between March 26 and April 4.

Good for the father turning in his son. The right thing isn’t always the easy thing. The arsonist was into black metal, a genre which has a history with church burning. Either these fires were anti-religion, or he’s a flaming racist.

all these catastrophes are happening at churches ... maybe this a war on religion?

I'm not going to jump to conclusions, unlike the writers of these articles. We don't know if it's a racist attack or not. So please people, shut up until the evidence comes out.

It makes you wonder if propaganda and "daddy never paid attention to me" played a bigger role than any racism motive in this case. I guess we'll have to wait and see. The thing is though, if this was an actually case of disgusting racism, 99.9% of conservatives will STRONGLY disavow this disgusting asshole. We certainly don't get the same response when a lefty does some horrific crap... or a disgusting, race baiting hoax hate crime.

Sure it could be about race but I wouldn’t doubt it in our current society if it is an attack on religion.

You can tell the media is chomping at the bit for some race baiting. Odd how it only ever goes in one direction when they do.....

"It caused us to pray harder..." How do you do that? Tense up your muscles, and maybe squeeze your eyes shut and grit your teeth together little more? Not too hard though, because you can't say words if you're tensed up too hard like your trying to squeeze out a constipated turd. Does ba-Jeezus respond to 'hard' prayers more than normal ones?

Let's avoid the issue. Let's talk about how the deputy's son is emotionally damaged, let's talk about the trials and tribulations of the perpetrator of these vicious hate crimes...but maybe they weren't racially motivated... Deflect, obfuscate, make excuses for the sick bigoted bastard that did this and ignore the fact that a white guy burned down three churches attended by black congregations. Racism is alive and well.

@Blank Stairs: This guy learned at his Daddy and Mommy's knees. This is typical learned behavior and the reason racism is still so endemic in the US.
