WAR ON GOD: Arson Suspected in Historic Church's Destruction
As the faithful people of America continue to see their culture diminished on the larger stages of society, there appears to be a rather frightening new bit of aggression emerging, and it doesn’t bode well for the health of the nation.
Religion has long been a partner to American politics, and we mustn’t ever forget that the first settlers to this land of ours came in an attempt to escape persecution for their beliefs.
But now, as certain factions of the political world continue to suppress and oppress religion, (and Christianity in particular), there appears to be some violence arriving to the scene as well.
A historic church in West Virginia was destroyed recently in what may have been arson, and neighbors are deeply disturbed by the news.
The St. Colman Catholic Church had already been destroyed by the time crews with the Beaver Volunteer Fire Department made it to the scene early Sunday, Fox News reported Monday.
Police were considering the possibility of arson.
“At this time the fire is considered suspicious in nature and is being investigated as arson,” the department said in a social media post, adding, “We were assisted by Ghent VFD, Coal City VFD, Ghent EMS, National Park Service and the WV State Police.”
The church itself was the legacy of a structure that can be traced back to the 1870’s.
