    U.S. Sen. John McCain has been known to hold a grudge, but there's one grudge the Republican from Arizona has been holding for nearly five years now. It stems back to comments U.S. Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, made during the 2008 presidential race, when McCain and his veep pick, then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, were running a heated campaign against then-Sens. Barack Obama and Joe Biden. In a lengthy New Republic interview with McCain published Tuesday, McCain compares some of the rhetoric his campaign was using against Obama ("palling around with terrorists") to rhetoric directed at his campaign. "With all due...

    Here we go again: another liberal narrative burned to a crisp. Over a two-week period in October, an arsonist targeted seven churches in the St. Louis area -- including several in Black Lives Matter protest hotspot Ferguson, Missouri. The Atlantic magazine, invoking the "long history of terrorism against black churches in America," lamented that the crime spree had been "slow to get the same attention" in the local and national media as another string of church arsons that occurred earlier this summer. Reminder: Several of those hyped hate crimes against "black churches" had been committed by black suspects; a significant...

    (CNN)Arson fires have been set at half a dozen St. Louis-area churches in recent days. Authorities want to know who did it and why. In each case, the fires were set at an exterior door and when no one was at the facility, according to a joint statement from the St. Louis Police and Fire Departments and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. "We believe that this fire-setting activity is meant to send a message," the statement said. It didn't specify what the message was.

    A possible hate crime is under investigation after a fire was set at a Central Florida church, where vandals also spray-painted "Allahu Akbar." The incident happened around 3 a.m. Monday at the New Shiloh Christian Church in Melbourne. About 1,500 members attend the church. Melbourne police said officers and firefighters discovered the blaze after a fire alarm sounded. Arson was the expected cause, police said.

Overnight a group of unknown people set fire to Bethel Bible Church, a Pentecostal church in the village Puthasanthai (district of Namakal). Thanks providential intervention of two members of the community, who were sleeping in the building, the fire was extinguished before demolishing the place of worship. Rev. Paul Arguman reported the matter to the police, who have placed surveillance units around the church and "vowed" to bring the perpetrators to justice. According to Sajan K George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC), the Hindu Munnani,...
