    Man arrested for plot to bomb Miami (Oklahoma) churches

    Amazing how people who don't believe in God seem to have the biggest grudges against God.

    Man arrested for plot to bomb Miami churches - FOX23 News
    A man is arrested after police uncover a plot to bomb 48 churches in Miami.

    Gregory Arthur Weiler II, of Illinois, was arrested after Miami police found a military bag containing 50 brown glass bottles with duct tape and a piece of cloth in a dumpster outside the Legacy Inn and Suites Thursday morning.


    snip...

    According to court papers, officers found a written journal entry stating "self promote for the next 4 years while beginning list of goals written out in Oklahoma having to do with destroying and removing church buildings from U.S. a tiny bit at a time - setting foundation for the years to follow."
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Oh look, a silly excuse for a blanket attack on atheists because of some random dude's actions. I'm sure you're just as quick to condemn all Christians when one of them bombs an abortion clinic or shoots a doctor.

    For that matter, how do you even know that he doesn't believe in God, or what his motives were? The article you cited doesn't seem to indicate that.

    Thank God they caught him.

    If this man actually is an atheist, he'd be the first one such ever to attempt to bomb churches in the US, to my knowledge.

    Not saying that I agree with the OP in that particular regard but......turn about IS fair play after all. Lord knows I've seen lots of athiests blame the whole of Christianity, Islam etc etc for the bat**** crazy things that people do in the name of their religion.

    PS: Its kind of obvious that the guy is an athiest btw. I don't know of anyone of religious background that wants to get rid of all the churches in this country....

    I don't think it should matter if he was an Atheist or a Buddhist. If anyone tries to harm innocents, they're wrong, regardless of religion.

    I am very shocked that this occurred, I know the family and the young man. He was brought up as a Christian and his family are very religious and devoted to the church. He has been away from his family and I am thankful that they found him before he could perfrom such a horrible act. While I keep the town in my prayers I also keep him and his family so they can recover from such a horrible act he was going to do.

    Even for jamesrage and KalStang this is pretty weak. Call me when modern atheists are flying planes into buildings, killing each other over what a few smelly Semites said 1800 years ago or even strapping bombs to themselves on a weekly basis all in the name of the flying spaghetti monster.

    Apparently the first part of my post wasn't clear enough. I don't agree with what jamesrage said. But it IS understandable.

    Understandable how? There's no part of James' argument that is attached to reality. However it could easily be stated that the religious in general are violent. Find me a peaceful religion and I'll find ya some seaside property in Afghanistan.

    That statement is simply untrue, James. There you go speaking untruths in the name of God. Rather ironic, innit?
