Thoughts? There unfortunately seems to be way too many arsons of places of worship lately and whether it be a mosque or temple or church, none of it is ok. I consider myself Jewish but also have a Catholic parent, so it is upsetting to me to see all this hatred and bitterness when we're all the same. Thankfully the FBI has done a good job at highlighting these types of cases, but I wish they wouldn't have to.
