The Hopewell Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi was lit on fire around 9:00 P.M. on Tuesday night. Hopewell Baptist is a predominantly African-American church and the fire is said to have caused significant damage. Most of the fire damage was in the main sanctuary. There were no reported injuries.
On the side of the church, someone also spray painted “Vote Trump.” It’s being investigated as a hate crime, and now the FBI and the Mississippi Fire Marshalls are on the case.
