Did militant atheism just get a little bit more militant?
Terrorism, San Francisco Style:
A San Francisco performance artist, out on bail from charges that he prematurely torched the Burning Man festival’s namesake effigy in August, is back in jail for allegedly trying to set fire to the historic Grace Cathedral, police said Monday.
Paul Addis was taken into custody on the top steps of the cathedral around 11:40 p.m. Sunday with an ammunition belt of small explosives strapped around his waist, said San Francisco police spokesman Sgt. Steve Mannina.
This booking photo is from the August arrest. He posted the $25,632 bond for that charge, and was released from jail. This time around, he’s in much deeper doo doo:
Addis was booked on five felony charges attempted arson, possession of arson materials, possession of a destructive device, arson of a church, violation of a court order and a misdemeanor for altering a firearm, according to the sheriff’s department.
He remained in jail late Monday in lieu of $488,000 bail.
Let’s see him post that one.
