Newtown Church Evacuated
St. Rose of Lima Church in Newtown has been evacuated. State police have responded to the church, according to NBC reporter Audrey Washington.
A noon mass was being held at the Roman Catholic Church at 46 Church Hill Road.
Witnesses at the mass said police entered the church and told parishioners that a threat had been made against the church and the surrounding area and that everyone had to leave immediately.
More than a dozen State Troopers armed with assault rifles entered a home next to the church, according to Washington.
Parishioners and news media were told to leave the church property.

14. Eh, a lot of fundies have a real hate on for Catholics
My money's on "random asshole who thinks he's being oh so edgy" though. Not everything is political.

5. MSNBC is reporting "all clear" and nothing found...
Apparently a false alarm.
The state police lieutenant reported earlier this morning that they were investigated bogus stories being planted with the media-- seems there are some sick folks wanting attention, so sadly we may see more of this.
