PANOLA, Ala. -- A Sumter County minister at one of the nine Alabama churches that were set ablaze last month says he hopes the arsonists "find God."Galilee Baptist Church assistant pastor Willis Speights says that while the building was burned, the church lives on in the hearts of its members. The three suspects are due in court this afternoon for a hearing on whether they should remain jailed. One of the young men reportedly invited a friend to go "demon hunting" last year and claimed to be a Satanist. Another sent a Web message to a fellow suspect earlier this year saying it was "time to reconvene the season of evil." Copyright 2006 Associated Press. All rights reserved.
