A Southern Oklahoma minister is defending himself at the pulpit. He says he didn't burn down his own church.

An arsonist burned down Durant's First Assembly of God church last week. Pastor Michael Bradley took a lie detector test about the arson. The Sunday Oklahoman newspaper reports he failed the test.

Bradley blames the Ku Klux Klan - but authorities say there's no evidence it was racially motivated. The church is currently meeting at a funeral home.
