On Tuesday evening, after attacking and insulting Jews during the day, racist BLM pro-Biden activists intentionally burned down a Vietnamese Baptist church.
From the Baptist Press:
The building of Vietnam Baptist Church in Philadelphia was burned Tuesday night (Oct. 27) during the second night of unrest in the city after the police shooting of a Black man Monday (Oct. 26). The fire is under investigation by the Philadelphia fire marshal’s office.
Pastor Philip Pham received a call Tuesday night from a church member whose friend had seen the flames and seven fire trucks surrounding the church.

“I have no idea why they attacked our church,” Pham said. “They burned it from the roof. They threw flammable chemicals on the roof and [flames] burned through the roof” and down through the rest of the building. He said the facility is a “total loss.”
Pham said the church is still meeting mostly online due to strict pandemic-related restrictions in the city. Wednesday, he was calling around to nearby schools to find a place to host the church’s leadership team as they broadcast the livestream this Sunday.
“Remember us in your prayer in time of need like this,” he urged Southern Baptists. “The church members here need encouragement. The majority of us have very strong faith in Christ, but a minority, a few new believers, they need their faith to grow. Pray for their faith to take deep root in the love of God so they can be steadfast in Him. Not focus on the problem, but focus on Jesus. Please remember us in your prayers.”
Philadelphia Police were ordered not to arrest looters by 1st Deputy Police Commissioner Melvin Singleton, according to a report from FOX29 News.
