Louisiana church fires: Law enforcement official's son taken into custody, reports say

A man arrested in connection with fires at three historically black Louisiana churches is a law enforcement official's son, according to local reports.
Authorities said they will announce significant updates in the case -- in which three churches were burned in 10 days -- at a news conference Thursday at 10 a.m. (11 a.m. ET) at the St. Landry Parish Sheriff Public Safety Complex in Opelousas.
Officials with knowledge of the investigation told CNN on Wednesday night that a 21-year old man from St. Landry Parish was arrested in connection with the fires.

CNN has been provided the name of the subject but is not reporting it until it is announced by authorities.
St. Mary Baptist Church in Port Barre burned on March 26, followed by Greater Union Baptist Church in Opelousas on April 2 and two days later, Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in the same town.
The fires are believed to have been intentionally set, a local elected official said Tuesday.

Officials are also investigating a fourth, smaller fire on March 31 at the predominantly white Vivian United Pentecostal Church in Caddo Parish, more than 200 miles north of St. Landry. The blaze was intentionally set.

CNN has a name but they are not reporting it? Interesting.

What is a "pagan social media page?"

6. The pagan gods made him do it.

Lol.
Or maybe it was the music.
Gotta blame something.

Who knows, maybe this time he's an atheist and they can blame atheists for a change.

7. Maybe you are right. He doesn't appear to be black, hispanic, or a Muslim

so he must be an atheist!

8. Norwegian black metal fans and some band members have burned churches.

So there could be a connection with the black metal.
That is if oflguy got the correct information.
His track record isn't very good for that.

11. Satanism is not athiestism

Any time you have to ask, "What would Satan do?" the outcome is not going to be good.

13. Laveyan Satanism is atheist at it's core.

Even bands like Deicide whose lyrics are satanic aren't really satanists.
My wife likes that stuff, thrash, black and death metal.
Too heavy for me. Gimme Motorhead.

You are wrong again though.

I believe in religion. It exists. Many different types.
I dont believe that the gods of those religions exist.
Silly.

17. Then you don't believe IN religion - except global warming

You don't even know who the gods of global warming are, yet you believe in it.

Everybody knows religions exist silly.

You hate Christianity for some strange reason, so you HAVE to believe it exists.

I don't hate Christianity or Christians.
That's just a lie.
Mocking and laughing at ridiculous bullshit isn't hatred.

You're lying when you say you don't

Just what DO you call yourself, anyway?

Satanist?

Cultist?

Devil Worshiper?

22. It's a screen name.

If that's your best, your best won't do.

I'll let you in on a little secret.
I'm not really the son of Satan.

2. If this asshole did it because of the racial makeup of the churches

He should be charged with terrorism and sent to the deepest darkest hole. Florence supermax has a few rooms open I hear.

4. Whether racially or politically motivated it seems terrorism charges would be appropriate.

It was obviously a dedicated campaign of violence to prove some sort of ideological point.

9. My comment

...from the other thread:

"Going strictly from his appearance, I wonder if this had anything to do with the whole "Black" or "Death" metal thing? I recently rented Lords of Chaos about the rise of the Death metal scene in Norway where two of those idiots were burning down ancient Norwegian churches. The guy in custody - Holden...? was his father a J.D. Salinger fan? - is wearing what looks like a Thors Hammer necklace, often associated with the Black Metal stuff and maybe, white supremacy?"

Looks like I may have been right.

As for Holden: the protagonist in The Catcher in the Rye was Holden Caulfield....I almost named my son the same as I'm a huge Salinger fan.
