American burns three black churches: “I wanted to have a better black metal image”



The son of a Louisiana deputy sheriff confessed yesterday that he set fire to three black churches.

Holden Matthews, 22, admitted in court that over a 10-day period in March and April 2019 he set fire to Baptist churches in St. John's Parish. Landry, CNN reports.



He wanted to be a better black metal musician

Matthews pleaded guilty to three counts of violating the Church Fire Prevention Act. After his arson, the following were burned: Mary Baptist Church in Port Barre, Greater Union Baptist Church and Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Opelousas.

He admitted that he did these acts because of the religious character of the objects and for wanting to perfect his status as a black metal musician by copying similar crimes committed in Norway in the 1990s. He said he shared footage of the arson on Facebook.

“I can't stand all these Christians”

It was revealed during the trial that Matthews wrote on Facebook that he was appalled by Baptist beliefs and that he could not stand all these Christians, “a bunch of brainwashed people trying to find happiness in religion.” He also noted that it would be better for “more blacks to follow the ancient beliefs of pre-Christian Africa.”

Matthews' father, a deputy local sheriff, found it very difficult to find out that his son was suspected of arson. Holden Matthews could be sentenced to up to 70 years in prison if found guilty. The verdict is due on May 22.
