Palin's Church Torched
An arsonist set fire to the Wasilla Bible Church, the Alaskan church which drew negative attacks from the Left during the presidential election because of its best-known parishioner, Gov. Sarah Palin. The fire broke out Friday night while several people were inside, causing $1 million in damages to the structure. Gov. Palin visited the church on Saturday after the fire and told an assistant pastor she was sorry if the "undeserved negative attention" her candidacy brought to the church led to the arson. An Anchorage Daily News report indicates fire investigators have no evidence at this time which suggests a political motivation is behind the fire.
