    rolleyes Palin's Church Severely Damaged by Arson

    ANCHORAGE, Dec. 13 -- Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's home church was badly damaged by arson, leading the governor to apologize Saturday if the fire was connected to "undeserved negative attention" from her campaign as the Republican vice presidential nominee.
    Damage to the Wasilla Bible Church was estimated at $1 million, authorities said. No one was injured in the fire, which was set Friday night while a handful of people, including two children, were inside, according to James Steele, the Central Mat-Su fire chief.
    He said the blaze was being investigated as an arson. Steele said he didn't know of any recent threats to the church, and authorities did not know whether 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.
    Pastor Larry Kroon declined to say whether the church had received any recent threats.
    Palin was not at the church at the time of the fire. She stopped by Saturday, and her spokesman Bill McAllister said in a statement that the governor told an assistant pastor she was sorry if the fire was connected to the "undeserved negative attention" the church has received since she became the vice presidential candidate Aug. 29.
    "Whatever the motives of the arsonist, the governor has faith in the scriptural passage that what was intended for evil will in some way be used for good," McAllister said.
    The 1,000-member evangelical church was the subject of intense scrutiny after Palin was named Sen. John McCain's running mate. Early in Palin's campaign, the church was criticized for promoting in a Sunday bulletin a Love Won Out conference in Anchorage sponsored by Focus on the Family. The conference promised to "help men and women dissatisfied with living homosexually understand that same-sex attractions can be overcome."
    The fire was set at the entrance of the church and moved inward as a small group of women worked on crafts, Steele said. The group was alerted to the blaze by a fire alarm.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)

    Palin Derangement Syndrome

    .....What her detractors don't seem to realize is that in the process of insulting Palin, they are insulting the majority of the country. If being a self-made success story, a working mother, a church-going member of a small-town community, and a believer in moderate to conservative political viewpoints disqualifies Palin, what does that say about mainstream America? The inherent condescension at the heart of the anti-Palin campaign is coming across loud and clear and it may actually be boosting her popularity.

    The sexist tenor of the attacks on Palin is only furthering this process. Some of the worst comments have emanated from self-professed feminists who seem to resent the path Palin has taken in life, even as it parallels their own. The always independent-minded Camille Paglia is a notable exception, but by and large, the liberal, female establishment has turned on Palin . Never mind that Palin -- with an amazing record of professional accomplishment, a happy marriage, and five beautiful children -- is the personification of the feminist "women can have it all" ideal.......

    What does that mean? This is not about Obama though you seem to often fixate on him and try to play the "Kevin Bacon" game in every thread that you post in. Why is that? Is it really that challenging for you to stay on topic?

    You have absolutely no proof of who did this yet you chose to post immediately that "elitist savages" (aka Liberals) are responsible. You certainly love to make up conspiracies that often go back to Obama, don't you?

    Whoever did this should be caught and tried and then we can all pass judgment and then we will hopefully know their motives. Until then, and especially without a suspect or clue of a suspect I prefer to not try to twist this into another Republican v. Democrat conspiracy partisan bull**** thread.

    Love the little mantrum, feel better now?


    obama has nothing to do with this. I was simply pointing out how a racist church was not firebombed yet this not racist church was.


    BTW you think all liberals are savages? how sad for you.

    Who said liberals did it?

    After their lame attacks, I would suspect McCain Campaign Staffers to be behind this.

    Maybe Putin reared his head.

    Might have been kids.

    Might have been a disgruntled church employee.

    Might have been a pyromaniac.

    Might be insurance fraud.

    Drunken fisherman? I'll bet it was Moi from The Deadliest Catch.

    I hope they catch whomever did this. But let's remember, not everyone operates according to partisan lines.
