I'd be interested to hear his actual motivations, straight from his mouth.
Hopefully it's not something along the lines of "Christians are stupid and I was bored so I figured I'd burn a church to protest...you know...God."
The last fellow to burn a church in Sydney said something pretty much to that effect. I got the impression he was a relatively bright guy(he was a professed Burzum fan), but unfortunately he was horribly inarticulate. If you're doing it to make a statement, at least think of some smart things to say beforehand.
I'll update if I hear any more about it.
No act is gonna have significance unless the actor links it to the name of a philosophy or movement most people can understand.
Yeah, that was my thinking too. The media/public will view this as an isolated incident and an act of random destruction.
There's little point outright attacking Christianity. They tried that in Norway and in the long run it probably did more harm to black metal than anything. Maybe if smarter people reform it...
Update: two more teenagers arrested. No footage or interviews yet.
