Word of Life -- Arson case

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]dulcinbradbury)

Religious differences led a young man to set fire to a Warren County church this spring, Sheriff Larry Cleveland alleged today.

"Police arrested Caleb Uriah Lussier, 20, of Plymouth, Mass., and charged him with two felony counts of third-degree burglary and one count of third-degree arson, also a felony. Lussier is a student at the Word of Life Bible Institute in Chestertown, walking distance from the Christ Church of Pottersville, the Episcopal church that burned down May 30."

When I was a kid, some neighbors of ours said that their Church group was having a group of teenagers to come in for a concert. We were invited and asked whether we'd be willing to put a few kids up for the night. We agreed -- and went to the concert.

The two girls were nice, but, they had *no* ability to think for themselves. I remember being very uncomfortable at the "concert" as well -- and I was fairly Christian at the time (though young). Somehow, I'm not surprised that someone out of this group went off the deep end.
