Arson latest in string of attacks on California churches

Catholic World News - April 19, 2011

The destruction of a Los Angeles-area Catholic parish by arson-- causing at least $8 million in damage-- is the latest in a rash of attacks on Catholic churches in California over the past two years. Some churches have suffered burglary, others graffiti and the destruction of statues, and one has had a tabernacle desecrated.

    Notice that the LAT headline gave not so much as a hint that this was an act of arson. Can't rile people up. Make 'em read the fine print.
