    • Jim Crow South’s lynching of blacks and Christianity: The terror inflicted by whites was considered a religious ritual.
      "I should emphasize that blacks of the era understood lynching as rooted in the Christian practice of white southerners. 'It is exceedingly doubtful if lynching could possibly exist under any other religion than Christianity,' wrote NAACP leader Walter White in 1929, 'No person who is familiar with the Bible-beating, acrobatic, fanatical preachers of hell-fire in the South, and who has seen the orgies of emotion created by them, can doubt for a moment that dangerous passions are released which contribute to emotional instability and play a part in lynching.'
    • Three Del. churches hit by arsons in one day
      Moorer – who said he started Healing Hands after God came to him in a dream 12 years ago – believes his church was targeted. There have been multiple problems since it was established, he said. The church, which has a diverse congregation, has been subject to racially tinged vandalism in the past. Two juveniles were arrested in March 2004 for spray-painting slurs on the church. In a separate incident in 2006, vandals spray-painted swastikas and racial slurs in the church.
