Mosque Arsonist Caught, Evangelical Christian Confesses

Oh wait, did I say evangelical?  I meant devout Muslim.  White Liberals rend their clothing in sheer frustration.   The dread anti-Muslim “backlash” by Teabagging religious wackos is once again on hold.

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Officials say a 26-year-old man has been arrested and charged with setting fire to a Marietta mosque he had attended.

Marietta fire marshal Scott Tucker said Thursday that Tamsir Mendy was arrested Wednesday night and charged with first degree arson at the mosque, which caught fire Monday night. Tucker says Mendy is being held without bond.

Tucker says Mendy describes himself as a devout Muslim who had attended the mosque. Tucker didn’t characterize a motive but says it doesn’t appear to be a hate crime.

Tucker says the arrest is “a bit of a surprise” to members of the mosque, who had expressed concern that the fire might be hate crime.

Tucker said earlier that the fire did about $100,000 worth of damage.
