    "God will do the right thing."


    Apparently the fire caused around $1 million worth of damage, or around 5 Palin wardrobes.

    While I am certainly not a fan of Sarah Palin, I am much less of a fan of whatever douche is behind this.

    Arson is so **cking clever.

    Uh, yeah...you don't fight conservatism with worthwhile ideas and values; you fight it with matches and gasoline. :rolleyes:

    ....Jackass....

    I don't care if anyone thinks Palin and/or the church are a bunch of religious nutcases...this is despicable.

    Okay, I do feel bad about this, but that made me laugh. :D

    If this church was anything other than a Christian house of worship, and Palins church, people would be screaming "hate crime"....

    I certainly don't think you'll find anyone condoning this despicable act of cowardice. It has nothing to do with it being a church or Palin being a member, it is wrong and people have expressed that.

    Must've been all of those damn witches over in Africa. Her pastor is already on a flight to Kenya to do some more exorcisms.

    I heard the closed circuit video showed this suspect leaving the church just before the fire broke out.

    That's terrible. My parent's house burned down a little over a month ago. It's one of the worst things that can happen. Let's hope they find whoever did it. It's fortunate no one was hurt.

    Is that really all you have to say? My god, are you that cynical?

    Personally I think just the opposite. It is a hate crime focused on Palin and her church.

    Just an opinion and arson is wrong. Anywhere.

    Sadly this was probably done by one of those nut cases she got all wired up.

    I bet it was relatives from that one un-pardon turkey in the interview that started it.

    If it does turn out to be arson I hope they catch any involved.

    Well, we really can't say that just yet. I didn't see mention of a suspect in the article. That judgment could certainly be made depending on who did it. We won't know that til they nab someone. The sad thing is, fire destroys so much evidence. We may never know who did it.

    I think you've misunderstood what I'm saying. I'm not saying that it had nothing to do with the fire, I'm saying that my opinion has nothing to do with Palin or the church. I've no idea why/somebody started the fire.

    It was just a direct response to the other poster. It is despicable and nobody is denying that.

    Come on Lee. We're talking about a town of 5,000 people where everybody knows each other. And there were 5 women inside the church when it was started at the front door..Sounds to me like some wacko ran up to the church and started the fire then ran away. A local no doubt. And a local that's peeved off at the church. I know coincidences don't mean much in a large city but this is a tiny town with a national figure at the center.

    It's obvious to me.

    It's odd that this is being described as "Sarah Palin's church," when surely it is the church of hundreds of others besides her. Speaking of odd, Palin offered what I can only call a preemptive apology with a political edge when she said that she was sorry if the fire had anything to do with the "undeserved negative attention" the church received during the presidential campaign. Not only do we not know who set the fire or why, it's a little creepy at least for Palin to imply that something political might have been the reason in her only public statement on the matter.

    Perhaps. But what if it was someone from somewhere else? Why assume it was someone local? Palin is a national figure, indeed. It could have come from anywhere, unless you know something that's not in the article. ;)

    Well, I'm just saying I don't think it's at all obvious. Once Palin stepped onto the national stage, she got the attention of the whole country. This could have come from anywhere.
