Ohio Church Burned Down Because It Accepted LGBT Members – FRC Gives Arsonist License To FIRE!

Washington Township volunteer firefighters were called to the scene of a blazing fire  at a South Bloomingville, OH  historic landmark early Friday morning as a LGBT friendly church was burnnt to the ground in what the State Fire Marshal’s Office and Hocking County Sheriff’s Office are calling a case of arson.

According to one South Bloomingville resident, a man was seen at the site when the fire began, fueling the theory that the blaze was intentionally set.

The Rev. Scott Davis bought the church in 2010 and opened it to the community for services in 2011. Davis said he suspects arson because he has received many death threats in the past. “It’s because this is a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender church, and people around here don’t agree with it.” Davis said he welcomes all people to the church, regardless of faith, sexual orientation or race. There are approximately 30 locals who attend on a regular basis.

Davis said the residents of the small town are very upset with the orientation of the church, but doesn’t understand why someone would destroy the last historic building other than for revenge.

But we understand though don’t we?

The Family Research Council gave the arsonist a “license to fire!”
