We’re living in scary and sad times as Christians. Palin was targeted by the media, and viciously attacked by the left because of her religion. And now, an arsonist has set her church in Alaska on fire, causing an estimated one million dollars in damage. The hatred in this country is out of control, and if you look at the news with an honest eye, that hatred is coming from one direction. The Left! Now watch as the MSM gives this story a fraction of the coverage it would have gotten if it were Reverend Wright’s church that was burned down.
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.
“It’s hard to say at this point. Everything is just speculation,” he said. “We have no information on intent or motive.”
Steele would not comment on the means used to set the fire.
Pastor Larry Kroon declined to say whether the church had received any recent threats.
“There are so many variables,” he said. “I don’t want to comment in that direction.”
