Gregory Arthur Weiler II told his friends and relatives that he had had issues for years with religion. On Monday, Weiler was being held without bail in Oklahoma on terrorism charges stemming from what authorities say was a plot to blow up dozens of churches with Molotov cocktails.
According to court documents quoted by the newspaper, Weiler was arrested after police found bomb-making equipment in a garbage can at a motel. Entering Weiler’s motel room, police found dozens of empty beer bottles made into Molotov cocktails, along with a torn-up page that had handwritten instructions for making the bombs. The document had a hand-drawn map of 48 local churches, and plans to make more bombs, according to the affidavit.
Officials said Weiler planned to videotape the explosions. A journal discovered in his motel room laid out plans to destroy churches across the U.S. “Self-Promote for the next 4 years while beginning list of goals written in Oklahoma having to do with destroying and removing church buildings from U.S., a tiny bit at a time -- setting foundation for the years to follow,” one journal entry says.
