From WSPA.com:

LAS CRUCES, N.M. – Officials say there have been reports of explosions at two Las Cruces churches.

At the time of Sunday mass, two explosions were reported going off at Calvary church and at Holy Cross church according to Las Cruces Sun News. Sun News reports that police immediately started evacuating people.

Las Cruces police say the explosion at Calvary church came from a bomb in a mailbox and the explosion at Holy Cross church came from a trashcan and shattered windows.

Sun News reports that an explosion happened in a mailbox near Calvary Baptist Church Sunday morning with church members inside.

There is no word yet on what started the explosions or if the incidents are connected.

    Wonder if this came from the Religion of Peace or the Disciples of Tolerance.

    I was glad to know that no one was hurt at Holy Cross, as it also serves as a retreat center run by the Conventual Franciscans, so people do live there as well as pray there.

    Is this the fifth stage of religious persecution, unfolding before our eyes?

    Had the bombs exploded outside of two PP locations, there would be NOTHING ELSE reported in the MSM for about the next three days.

    I was at the Mass at Holy Cross Parish. The blast happened right at the consecration, Msgr. Anderson paused a few seconds, everyone looked around and Msgr. continued the Mass. It sounded like a loud shotgun had gone off. At about midway through the communion distribution a police officer came to the Ambo and asked that the Mass be stopped and everyone exit the building. About 200 attendees were escorted by police officers to a spot about a block away. As of this time, 2130 Mountain time, none of the autos in the lot (including mine) have been released, The FBI is the lead agency in the two investigations and they might not wrap up till tomorrow. There are going to be a lot of folks looking for a way to work tomorrow. By the way, the Holy Cross mentioned by tgarcia2 is a retreat house about 10 miles away from Holy Cross parish.

    Oh, probably just a lone wolf. Another example of prayplace violence. Don’t forget the Crusades. And Timothy McVeigh. And the fire bombings of abortion mills. Nothing special here. Let’s get back to the Cecil story.

    That just gave me a terrible thought I pray does not come to pass: Agents of PP bombing their own facilities, making it look like anti-abortionists did it in order to distract from the light currently shining on their ghoulish practices. It’s not as if self-appointed Social-Justice Imams haven’t faked stuff before: http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Gay-Server-Tip-Lifestyle-Receipt-Discrepancy-233040811.html

    I thought one was not permitted to stop Mass, once it started. Could someone clarify?
