BREAKING NEWS: Bomb Plot Against Falwell Funeral Attendees Protestors Foiled By Authorities

Damn, those crazy Christianists tried to set off a bomb at their own funeral.

Is there no limit to their lunacy? When will they learn to tolerate their own correligionists?

I don't have details; Shep Smith just reported it on FoxNews. Thanks to dri.

My bad; it's already up. And the early reporting says it was a crazy Christianist, contrary to my sarcasm. He was looking to blow up funeral protestors, not attendees.

Authorities arrested a Liberty University student for having several homemade bombs in his car.

The student, 19-year-old Mark Ewell of Amissville, Va., reportedly told authorities that he was making the bombs to stop protesters from disrupting the funeral service. The devices were made of a combination of gasoline and detergent, a law enforcement official told ABC News' Pierre Thomas. They were "slow burn," according to the official, and would not have been very destructive.

Three other suspects are being sought, one of whom is a soldier from Fort Benning, Ga., and another is a high school student. No information was available on the third person.

Authorities were alerted to the potential bomb plot by a concerned relative of Ewell.
