Palin's Home Church in Suspicious Fire

December 14, 2008 · Leave a Comment

In a fire that officials are calling a likely arson, Sarah Palin’s church in Wasilla suffered serious fire damage on the evening of Friday, December 12th. Early estimates of $1 million worth of damage have been made for the fire at the Wasilla Bible Church. There are reports that five women were in the church at the start of the blaze, but fortunately no one has been reported injured.

There is no evidence yet that the fire was linked in any way to Palin or her run for office, but the event does seem highly suspicious given the new high visibility for Palin.  We hope that the fire turns out to have been nothing more than an accident.  Sadly there are some seriously disturbed people in the world too ready to commit acts of violence.  Our thoughts are with the people of Wasilla and members of the church after this cowardly act.

Palin gave a statement:

“Gov. Palin stopped by the church this morning, and she told an assistant pastor that she apologizes if the incident is in any way connected to the undeserved negative attention the church has received since she became a vice-presidential candidate on 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.”

The church planned to meet in temporary quarters for the Sunday services.
