Alabama Church Fires: Two Suspects Arrested

Kathy at Birmingham Blues has the update. The two men are reportedly Birmingham-Southern College students. Kathy notes that Birmingham-Southern is affiliated with the United Methodist Church. All 9 of the churches burned were Baptist churches. No motive has been cited yet.

There’s going to be a news conference today at 2:00cst with more details. On its face, however, it certainly appears that Chris Matthews’ suggestion that the fires were started by liberals or gays was incorrect. Quelle surprise.

UPDATE: A third suspect has been arrested.
