Alert: Sarah Palin’s Church Burned – Arson Suspected

From MSNBC:

Gov. Sarah Palin’s home church was badly damaged by arson, leading the governor to apologize if the fire was connected to “undeserved negative attention” from her failed campaign as the Republican vice presidential nominee.

Damage to the Wasilla Bible Church was estimated at $1 million, authorities said Saturday. No one was injured in the fire, which was set Friday night while a handful of people, including two children, were inside, according to Central Mat-Su Fire Chief James Steele.

He said the blaze was being investigated as an arson but didn’t know of any recent threats to the church. Authorities didn’t know whether Palin’s connection to the church was relevant to the fire, Steele said.

I hope and pray that this wasn’t politically motivated.  Fortunately, no one was injured.

  1. My patience is wearing thin with idiots who do things like this.

    That and the tool that threw his shoes and GWB in Iraq.

  2. Mine, too. And they tell us we’re the hatemongers.

    I learned something about that idiot in Iraq…he’s a journalist who claimed either earlier this year or late last year to have been kidnapped. I say he claimed it because no evidence was found to support his claims. No ransom was ever demanded, his family and coworkers never contacted–he just disappeared for a couple of days and resurfaced. He said he’d been kidnapped, questioned, beaten unconscious and then released. I thought it smelled like a load of hooey then. He’s just tryin’ to get attention.

  3. I heard on the radio a report that a Focus On The Family event was suppose to take place at the church in regards to gay marriage. It seemed like the insinuation was that militant gays may have done this. I really hope that that is not true and that it was not even arson. Of course, these people must realize that keeping Sarah Palin in the news is not of benefit to them.

  4. Well, arson investigators found the residue of an accelerant, so you can bet that it is arson. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if it was militant gays, although I’m not willing to say definitively that it was because there’s no proof; it could have been any number of people. Americans have a love-hate relationship with Sarah Palin, unfortunately.

  5. a lot of pyromaniac arsonists like to burn churches only because the way the fire burns around the steeple looks pretty and looks better then the fire from a normal building. It has nothing to do with religion just the different ways a building will burn depending on how it was built. So it could be that. However I would look for some form of political motivation behind this before I would go to the crazy pyro theory.
