PART FOUR, MORE RECENT NEWS FOR OUR FAITH-BASED READERS AND HISTORY BUFFS TOO, AN UPDATE ON THE SAN GABRIEL MISSION FIRE

Possible sad news....with the calls in recent weeks for the destruction of churches, stained glass windows and more......an update on the San Garbriel Mission Fire---again and hoping and praying it was not arson......

Fire Official Says San Gabriel Mission Fire Apparently Started In Choir Loft. Arson Is A Possible Cause by Josie Huang in News on July 12, 2020 2:40 PM--The blaze that gutted the historic San Gabriel Mission early Saturday morning appears to have started in the church's choir loft on the second floor, according to a city fire official.The choir loft, a 250-square foot area that housed the pipe organ, is now the focal point of investigators who are considering arson as a possible cause, said Capt. Antonio Negrete.

"(Investigators) are going to do some more testing, wait for lab results and see if, in fact, it was accidental or if there was anything to go into that arson box that they're going to check off or not," Negrete said. Negrete said there was no sign of forced entry into the mission, other than by fire crews who charged through the front door and also broke the lock on the exterior door to the second floor.

BREAKING: SAN GABRIEL MISSION FIRE, MUCH DESTROYED

I don't think anyone is surprised by this news.....hoping and praying for a reasonable explanation.

Excerpted: The San Gabriel Fire Department said the initial investigation showed no immediate sign of arson.

"We need to be diligent in our investigation and check all of the boxes," Negrete said. While arson investigations are routine with all fires at houses of worship, Negrete noted that this blaze came at a time of criticism of the California missions and damage to several statues of Franciscan Father Junipero Serra. This particular mission was founded by Serra in 1771 in San Gabriel, a few miles southeast of Pasadena.   Church staff removed a statue of Serra from public view last week and put it in safe storage, Negrete said.  MORE AT https://patch.com/california/sanmarino/fire-destroys-roof-historic-san-gabriel-mission


UPDATED:  https://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2020/07/part-four-more-recent-news-for-our.html

SORRY...THE ANSWER IS STILL NO

From time to time this blog receives "requests" for coverage of the upcoming presidential election, debates, ads from both parties, etc.

Sorry...but short of election fraud, video manipulation, and the like, the answer is still no.

Currently, there are numerous online and print sites, mainstream media outlets, facebook pages, community "forums", etc. etc. etc.-- for this kind of information. Please utilize those until November.  Thank you.
