Surveillance cameras showed a man walk up to the building soon after 4 a.m. on April 8 wearing a face covering, tactical vest and gloves, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI. The man then ignited an improvised explosive device, threw it at the main entrance then ran away. The bomb partially detonated, resulting in some minor fire damage, authorities said.

      Weaponized Christian terrorists strike again. Most of them didn’t get this far without a lot of pushing from right-wing talk radio, cable propaganda channels, YouTube attention algorithms, corrupt pastors trying to stay relevant, and many other types of poisoning.

    And conservatives say liberals are pioneers of virtue signaling…

    Imagine coming to secular AF Mass to do your little performance and then give the MA state police something other than their own corruption to focus on. You’re absolutely going to get a knock from the Federales! Enjoy preaching in prison!

    If it was the other way around, it would be on the news/talk shows for about a week about how it’s an attack on USA.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    BOSTON (AP) — An Oklahoma man was arrested Wednesday after authorities accused him of throwing a pipe bomb at the Massachusetts headquarters of a group called The Satanic Temple.

    The Salem-based group says on its website that it campaigns for secularism and individual liberties, and that its members don’t actually worship Satan.

    Sean Patrick Palmer, 49, of Perkins, Oklahoma, has been charged with using an explosive to damage a building following an attack last week on the headquarters, which is also used as an art gallery.

    Several phone numbers associated with Palmer were out of service Wednesday, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts said they didn’t yet have the name of any lawyer representing him.

    Surveillance cameras showed a man walk up to the building soon after 4 a.m. on April 8 wearing a face covering, tactical vest and gloves, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI.

    The Attorney’s Office said investigators found a six-page note in a flowerbed near the attack addressed to “Dear Satanist” and urged repentance.


    The original article contains 342 words, the summary contains 172 words. Saved 50%. I’m a bot and I’m open source!
