An evangelical student burns down an Episcopalian church for its theological waywardness. Money quote:

Cleveland said Lussier confessed to robbing the Christ Church and setting fire to both houses of worship. He also allegedly admitted to sending threatening letters to three churches in his hometown. He was charged with two felony counts of third-degree burglary and a count of third-degree arson, a felony.

"He didn't think they were following the Bible the way they thought they should," Cleveland said. "He holds to the principle, but he said he went about it in the wrong way."

Why has this not been national news? This really was a church-burning. Does it have to have racial overtones to make the news?
