Church leaders 'expected more of a response' to spate of fires near Ferguson

from The Guardian

Several weeks after a spate of fires begun at churches in north St. Louis and with no known suspects, the Rev. Rodrick Burton sensed “lethargy” in his community at the New Northside Missionary Baptist church. Burton said he “expected more of a response” from the faith community to the fires, just several miles from Ferguson and six of seven in majority-black churches. Since Oct. 8, an alleged arsonist has targeted the cluster of churches in the city of 318,000, a series of incidents that has left investigators puzzled, with no suspect or known motive to date.
