Arson Causes $1.5 Million In Damage To Sarah Palin’s Church
Arson is described as the cause of a 1.2 million dollar fire that roared through the church Sarah Palin attends in Wassili Alaska:
No one was hurt in the fire on Friday night although a handful of people, including two children, were inside the Wasilla Bible Church, said the Central Mat-Su fire chief, James Steele.
Mr Steele said the blaze was being treated as arson, but he did not know of any threats to the church. Authorities also did not know whether Mrs Palin’s connection to the church was relevant to the fire.
“It’s hard to say at this point. Everything is just speculation,” he said. “We have no information on intent or motive.”
Damage to the church was estimated at $US1 million ($1.52 million), authorities said.
Mr Steele said the fire was lit at the entrance and moved inward as a small group of women were working on crafts. A fire alarm alerted them to the fire. Firefighters fought the blaze in temperatures of minus 17 degrees.
Although it is just speculation that the fire was started because of Sarah Palin’s connection to the church, the Sydney Herald decided to stoke the flames of the fire by adding this nugget of information:
The 1000-member evangelical church was the subject of scrutiny after Mrs Palin was named John McCain’s Republican Party running mate.
Early in her campaign, the church was criticised for promoting a Focus on the Family “Love Won Out Conference” in Anchorage. It promised to “help men and women dissatisfied with living homosexually understand that same-sex attractions can be overcome”.
From the cricket sounds that are emanating by the msm this weekend, I take it that the burning down of the Wasilli Bible Church is no big deal, as it shouldn’t be. It’s not like bigots and haters burned down the Trinity United Church of anything.
