Las Cruces police spokesman Dan Trujillo said they are still investigating explosions that happened near Calvary Baptist Church shortly after 8 a.m. and Holy Cross Catholic Church about a half hour later.
The first explosive device went off at about 8:20 a.m. in a mailbox on a wall near the administrative entrance to Calvary Baptist. According to police, several worshippers were inside the church at the time, but services hadn’t started.
Debris was scattered around the mailbox. "Right now, there's just a lot of paper shreds," Las Cruces police Sgt. Robert Gutierrez said Sunday morning.
The next blast came from a trash can outside Holy Cross Catholic at about 8:40 a.m. as Monsignor John Anderson was helping pass Communion. The bomb exploded just outside the front glass doors, shattering the thick glass…
Sunday services for later in the day were cancelled at both churches as police blocked off the streets to allow bomb-sniffing dogs to search the premises.

REMNANT COMMENT: As unfortunate as this is, obviously there’s no cause for alarm. After all, no LGBT properties were bombed, no abortion clinics, no mosques—just Christian churches, and the government would like to see all those shut down eventually anyway.
I wonder if the Southern Poverty Law Center had these two churches on their hate map, not that there would be any connection if they had. Just curious. I'm sure the old SPLC will be working night and day tracking down the haters who bombed these two Christian churches....yeah, right!
