    According to the authorities, in the late evening on Friday night, fire crews responded to Wasilla Bible Church. The fire resulted in about a million dollars worth of damage. The building is salvagable, and it is a big kudos to the volunteer fire departments who responded.

    Why is this signifigant? This is the church Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her family are members of.

    This was the statement released from the Palinistas.

    Here is the link to the local article. They are releasing few details at this point, because a criminal investigation is under way.

    Personally, while I disagree with Palin on some key issues, this is a tragic event to say the least, and I condemn it in the strongest words and thoughts possible. I am sure they will catch the idiot who did it, and they will probably go to prison for 5 counts of attempted murder, as the building was occupied at the time.

    If you would like to comment, please be respectful. Nobody deserved to have thier church burned in this manner.

    Oh please, I bet Piper could have answered that question. Its hardly a dig, and I wonder what you would have to say about it if the tables were turned.

    The fact is that the Anchorage Daily News is the most widely read paper in the state. I know she reads it. As for why she couldnt mention that, youd have to ask her, I dont have a logical explantion except maybe she didnt want to admit to reading that horrible liberal news rag down in the big city of Anchorage, the ADN, who overall have been very good to Sarah in thier reporting.

    This is the latest article from today. No doubt there will be a story tomorrow as well. I am actually fairly surprised the national media hasnt caught onto this.
    It appears some sort of accelerant was used in several different locations, and focused on the entrances. So whatever A-hole did this is probably looking at half a dozen counts of attempted murder and possibly hate crime indictments. Its just a matter of time before they catch that person.

    Not pursuing "hate crimes" for Palin church attackers

    Hate crimes are not to be pursued, just the fullest extent of the law -- that way all crimes are just crimes and it is not a matter of thought control.

    http://publicadvocateusa.org/news/article.php?article=4185


    Here are some videos of some gays assaulting:

    this one they attack the grandmother and destroy the cross http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QD1AITHS2Wc

    Here is a video of people agreeing with marriage in Florida where the radical homosexuals lost their attack on marriage.

    I dont think targeting things christian can be considered hate crimes. Christianity is not considered a minority group.

    Another thought-control advocate that just does not get it -- if you read the article:

    "In a letter to authorities in Alaska, Delgaudio also encouraged prosecutors not to seek hate crimes charges, if the arsonist or arsonists were motivated by hatred of Christians. "Whomever set the fire, for whatever reason, should receive the toughest and longest sentence possible for arson and attempted murder under Alaskan law," said Delgaudio, "But we do not condone the politicalization of crime in any case, including this one." emphasis added http://publicadvocateusa.org/news/article.php?article=4185

    meaning that there is NO SUCH THING as a "hate crime" which is just thought control

    for instance, this assault in this video, the assault of the homosexuals against a lone grandmother is assault, no need for thought control even though we know the radical gays here are being full of hate -- law judges the act, not thought control

    Umm... I am no advocate of hate crime laws. I think they are dangerous and stupid.


    If a man throws a brick in a white mans window it should be treated just the same as if a man throws a brick in a black mans window, or a homosexuals window.

    I do not think christians are in the list for hate crime. If I believed in hate crime laws I would say christians should be included but they dont seem to be. but since I am against it totally I dont care that they are not, I just wish it did not exist in the first place.

    Iseeme, and others concerned about hate crimes, I think that is to early to be determined as of yet among those of us without any inside knowledge into the investigation. But I am confident that the person(s) responsible will be held to pay to the highest extent of the law that is allowed under such circumstances.

    Keep in mind, this is not only Palin's church but several other prominent politicians and thier families attend the church as well.

    what are you talking about? Going after obama about his grandmother dying?

    first off, i dont know of anyone who "went after your freaking messiah" because his grandmother died, that would be pretty stupid, are you saying people thought he offed his grandmother?


    and what does that have to do with hate crime laws?

    I am not concerned about it, i really dont care. Palin is going to have to get used to this sort of treatment.
