No, it wasn’t Voldemort. Neither was it Sauron, nor was it Lucifer.
A 22-year-old Arizona man calling himself “Dark Lord” has been arrested for allegedly burning and urinating on a Bible outside a Christian-oriented homeless shelter in northern Arizona.
Eric Minerault AKA Dark Lord was booked into the Yavapai County Detention Center late on Aug 28 on suspicion of one count of unlawful symbol burning stemming from the incident at the Gospel Rescue Mission, says Prescott police spokesman Lieutenant Ken Morley in a written statement.
According to the statement, police officers were called to the scene at about 9pm by a mission representative who reported that a man was burning something on the mission’s front steps. Upon arriving at the scene, officers found Minerault standing on the steps, with a burned and wet Bible on the ground near him.
Quickly taking responsibility for the act, Minerault told officers the mission was selected for the desecration because he believed it was a place of Christian worship and he was “cursing the Christians,” says the police.
