The arson attacks on nine Alabama churches
in the last week or so have been making some news.State and federal officials were investigating the four rural west Alabama fires as intentional, the state fire marshal's office said in a statement.
All four churches torched were Baptist, like the five churches burned in the central part of the state late Thursday, three of which were completely destroyed.
Chris Matthews speculated a few days ago that perhaps it was liberals or gays who were responsible. Obviously he was kidding, but you wouldn't guess that from the reactions of the Lefty blogs
Maybe Dr Rusty Shackleford is kidding with this post
, but it sure doesn't come off that way:We, however, are not free to speculate that there might be a connection between global unrest over a series of cartoons depicting Muhammed and a series of arson attacks against churches attended by people that might be seen as sympathetic to those who blaspheme the Prophet (sawt), on the heels of that unrest. Nor to connect the dots between the actual murder of Christians, the bombing of Christian churches, and death fatwas against blasphemers over a cartoon and the torching of Christian churches here.
If he's making a point about media bias, he's got a valid argument. But there is no particular reason to assume that militant Islamists are to blame.
