Mississippi Church Burns Down a Month after Suing over COVID-19 Restrictions

HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss. — A Mississippi church was destroyed by a suspected arson fire about a month after its pastor sued the city over gathering restrictions amid the pandemic.

First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs burned down Wednesday, news outlets reported. Investigators from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office found graffiti in the church parking lot that read: “Bet you stay home now you hypokrites” (sic).

“We’ve kind of racked our brains and we have no idea,” said Jerry Waldrop, the church pastor. “No enemies that we know of.”

Waldrop filed a lawsuit against the city of Holly Springs last month, alleging police officers disrupted a bible study and Easter service. The city said nearly 40 parishioners inside the church were not practicing social distancing on April 10 when a citation was issued.
