Investigators said arsonists in Rutherford County, Tenn used an unthinkable item to add fuel to their fire, the Bible. Authorities said a group of teens used the pages to set fire to a church bus.
Fire officials believe this is the work of some teens trying to have fun, but investigators and church members are not amused one bit.
“The disrespect to God’s property is how we see it,” said Assistant Pastor Joel Young.
Charred corners of the Bible are still scattered on the Middle Tennessee Baptist Church parking lot, now part of an arson investigation scene.
On Thursday evening, authorities believe two teens set pages of the holy book on fire then threw it inside one of the church’s buses. Investigators suspect the teens had a change of heart and tried to use the extinguisher to put out the fire.
