A bunch of churches in Alabama have been burned in apparent arson recently. When I read the headline, I immediately thought that it was racially motivated violence, but seems that mostly White churches have been burned right along with mostly Black churches. Being that these churches were the homes of Baptist congregations in rural Alabama, let's go out on a limb here and assume these parishioners take the Bible pretty literally. Perhaps what was under attack here wasn't a particular ethnic community, but the ideology itself. Could these burnings be the work of anti-fundamentalist extremists?
