Ferguson Thugs Destroy Michael Brown's Church, Black Pastor Blames "White Supremacists"


Protestors torched Michael Brown family's church during Monday night's Ferguson protests as pastor blames white supremacists.

The Missouri church attended by Michael Brown’s father and his family was one of a dozen or so buildings burned to the ground during protests in the wake of a grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson. While the majority of the buildings destroyed on Monday were in downtown Ferguson, the Flood Christian Church is located some three miles away from the protests in a remote section of Country Club Hills.

 Pastor Carlton Lee, who has been a vocal advocate for the Browns since their son was shot in August, has said he believes that "white supremacists rather than protesters were to blame for the destruction".

Rev. Lee told NBC News that he believes his church was targeted because he has repeatedly called for the arrest of Officer Wilson.

'I'm very vocal in regards to the Michael Brown case,' said Lee, who has participated in rallies and press conferences with Michael Brown Sr. and claims to have received 71 death threats.

'The police called me and told me the church was on fire,' Lee said. 'I was in complete disbelief. I didn't think anyone would set a church on fire.

'I feel like one of my children has died. I put my blood, my sweat, my tears into this church, getting this church built from the ground up.

'To see that it was taken down in a few minutes is really heartbreaking.'

Rev. Lee said Michael Brown Sr. was 'just devastated again' about the extensive damage.

He suspects his church was "targeted by white supremacists who wanted to punish him for his support of the Brown family".

Pastor Lee told Mail Online that he had known the Brown family for several years after officiating at their wedding. He said he remembered Michael Jr. as a ‘big jokester.’

‘He was a fun loving guy to be around,’ he recalled.

On Sunday Lee had baptized Michael Brown Sr, his wife, Cal, and their children.

The event, which had taken place at a different church, had been planned months ago and Michael Jr. was supposed to be there, too.

'Sunday, we do the baptism, Monday, the church is one fire. It just doesn't add up,' he said.

He said Brown had pledged his help in repairing the damage to the storefront church that was once an automotive shop. The building and been a non-denominational church since February 2013.

'We rebuild,' Lee said. "We do not stop."
