According to multiple news outlets, on Wednesday morning, the First Pentecostal Church of Holly Springs in Mississippi burned to the ground.
It seems the church and its congregation had been in a legal back and forth to continue holding services despite the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and state-ordered lockdown orders.
The media is ignoring this story almost entirely. You would think churches get bombed every day or something by the lack of news coverage. I’m just surprised by that. You would think this would be a much bigger deal here in America.
WAYNE DUPREE SHOW: Does Anyone In Leadership Care About The Ballooning National Debt
First #Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs, Mississippi, refused to close due to #COVID19 restrictions and in retaliation the #Church was set ablaze today. The Arsonists spray painted these words in the pavement, “BET YOU STAY HOME NOW YOU HYPOKRITS”. pic.twitter.com/FjvrBTt1Qk

[Fox News] The building went up in flames between 2-4 a.m. Investigators said the church was spray-painted with graffiti before an explosion blew out the front of the building, according to Fox 13. Maj. Kelly McMillian of the Marshall Count Sheriff’s Department confirmed the fire to be a criminal act of arson.
Thomas More Society senior counsel and lawyer for the church, Stephen Crampton, spoke with Fox News about the fire and said the perpetrators spray-painted a message that read, “I Bet you stay home now you hypokrits.”
“We’re in a time where I don’t think it’s any secret that there’s a growing hostility toward churches, across the board,” Crampton said. “And now, here are churches like First Pentecostal that are sort of stirring up the waters by being outspoken and somewhat firm about seeking to protect their Constitutional rights.”
How much do you want to bet that nothing of importance will be done? Only local law enforcement will investigate and likely will only use B Team resources.
If by chance, they discover who participated in the destruction and decide to charge them, the prosecutor will likely be some hand slapping pacifist that will shop the bench for a judge who will toss the case.
Equal protection under the law? What a ridiculous charade the leftists have made of the concept.
Mainstream media, doing the work of far-left Democrats, has stirred up anger and fear in the lower intelligent level population. We can expect more such hate crimes against Christians, and against anyone who disagrees with the socialists.
