    Default Suspicious fire wrecks Sarah Palin's church

    Services today moved as suspicious fire wrecks Sarah Palin's church



    Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, her husband Todd and up to 1,000 fellow parishoners will worship in a local school this morning after a suspicious fire virtually destroyed the Wasilla Bible Church early Saturday.



    The Rev.Larry Kroon said some parishoners were in the church on Nicola Avenue at the time the fire was noticed but no one was injured. Firefighters battled for about eight hours in minus-20 degree temperatures to completely extinguish the blaze that began at the front door.

    The former Republican vice presidential candidate went to the church Saturday to apologize to pastors in case the estimated $1 million fire damages, suspected as arson, were "in any way connected to the undeserved negative attention the church has received" since the governor's involvement with John McCain's presidential campaign.
    The 30-year-old congregation in Wasilla, about 40 miles north of Anchorage, had moved into its new church just 30 months ago. Church officials said they expect to hold services at the Wasilla Middle School for the foreseeable future during repairs.

    I think a local alpha moose took offense at the negative publicity his species was now garnering, mooed at some of his buddies (mooses do MOO, right?) and they planned the whole thing right then and there. They may have hired someone, as moose do not have any thumbs, but I'm suspicious nonetheless.

    I hope this was just a coincidence. It's sad and disgusting if someone really did set fire to the church because of their dislike for Palin.

    I agree. It seems like it was less than 10 years ago when there was a disturbing pattern of African-American churches in the U.S. being set on fire. Not to mention synagogues and yeshivas that are vandalized with anti-Semitic graffitti. It's always wrong to resort to something like this.

    Maybe it was the headless turkey looking for revenge.

    Well it certainly wouldn't be at all in Sarah's personality to expect this to have anything to do with her - errr wait, that's the definition of narcissism.

    I wouldn't be shocked if Palin had the First Dude set the fire just so she could make it all about her.

    Well it has been a day or 2 since she was in the news - I think you're on to something. But, I bet it was that Levi kid as continued payment for "raising" his first born son, Trig.

    Or maybe Levi was smoking some weed with Bristol in one of the pews.

    Sounds like Palin's luck is beginning to run out. Perhaps she has more enemies than she thinks she does if this turns out to be arson.
