    I agree. Let me add that, had these been Christians building a church, those kinds of scurrilous questions would not even have been hinted at.

    In that vein, let me announce that there is a new Jim Crow in town.

    I know...its as unlikely as a democrat operative trashing a democrat office in Colorado...or a bunch of congressmen crying racism the day after they passed the widely unpopular health care legislation that got everyone spending the next 8 weeks talking about racism and NOT the legislation...why...what diabolical genius would even consider such a thing.

    Seriously...I dont know what happened there. I'm sure they will investigate and when the truth is found I full on support burying whoever it is that did it. You would THINK though that people so ensconsed in the concept of tolerance would withhold judgement til we know more about the issue than 'something happened'...

    Which is another reason for arson, but no no you tolerance folks, with you it's all about those DAMNED BIGOTED SOUTHERNERS!!
    I don't believe that you actually believe that. First of all, there is no insurance "reward" - the company's obligation, under tort law, would be to put the insured back to where they were before the fire occurred. In other words, they'd get exactly the cost of the damage - no profit. So much for your stupid theory.

    And do you have any evidence this was a hate crime? No. You just assume, look at the heavy handed uses of the Race Card to shut down any talk this might NOT be a hate crime. Disgusting Dan.

    Is it probable some idiot did this? Absolutely. but you're way too stuck on proving how TOLERANT you are you are jumping to conclusions without evidence. This reminds me of that story with Nancy Grace, you know the lacrosse team was accused of rape and she was ready to put them all in jail. Yeah, right now, you're nancy grace.

    Yeah, it's obviously bigots that caused this, those evil white people.
    It could also be a faked hate crime.

    We don't know, but you guys have all ready tried and convicted the "White man" for it. Disgusting.

    People were protesting the mosque in Tennessee quite virulently. The Daily Show even did a segment on it a few days back.

    It's rather twisted wishful thinking that the Tennessee mosque was the result of insurance fraud when there is absolutely zero evidence to support such a theory.

    People don't need anyone on TV with any views to do arson.

    Arson is a different psychological act - there's often a personal thrill that goes along with it that's not fostered by 'tv rhetoric'

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Like people getting a thrill blowing up churches and burning them down in Mississippi during the 1960's? Arson isn't always done for the personal thrill. Sometimes it is done as a terrorist act.

    Dude, until we know who did it, this sort of talk is uncalled for, and over the top.
