Sarah Palin's Church Goes Up in Flames

12/14/2008 9:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah PalinParanoid much? Sarah Palin actually apologized after the evangelical church she attends was nearly destroyed by arsonists -- all because she still harbors guilt over her failed VP run.

Officials estimated the fire caused around $1 million in damage to the Wasilla Bible Church -- which Sarah hoped wasn't in connection to the "undeserved negative attention" from her failed campaign, according to the Sun Times News Group.

The police have no leads at this time -- and John McCain has not been named as a suspect.

With all the pure hate spewed by the Obama cult media outlets toward Sarah Palin, I'd be a little paranoid too

Truth is stranger than fiction    

Ohhhh, pleeeze. Palin supporters are nutcakes and a disgrace to the Republican Party. These paranoid goofs are silly. Why don't they blame the fire on the turkey Gods for that awful interview Palin gave on Thanksgiving, while audiences were forced to watch turkeys in their final death throes, thrust upside down, in bloody metal cones, thrashing about.

By the way, who knows why her personal e-mail account that she unethically conducted government business on was suddenly and mysteriously "hacked into" at the very same time investigators were investigating the Troopergate scandal. A lot of the evidence was subsequently destroyed. I mean, how convenient.

Oh please! This just HAS to be a case of arson aimed at Palin, eh? Never mind the fact that a ladies craft group was in the church when the fire broke out. It couldn't possibly have happened because someone left an iron or a hot glue gun unattended, or maybe overloaded an electrical outlet, or fried the coffee maker. Palin immediately thinks that a fire at a church she wasn't even occupying at the time might be a slam against her. Egotistical much?

Church fires are terrible, and if this was arson, they should find and prosecute this person(s) quickly. But Palin's comment about the "undeserved attention" is pure tripe, and almost as repulsive as the fire itself. I only hope the investigation into what and who caused the fire isn't as tainted as her comment.

Just one more way to trash Palin. If I were her I would have thought it could be political payback, too. And TMZ and its posters like to pretend they are so tired of her. This is a non-story but you just have to try and stir the sh*t some more. Lame.

Why does Palin seem to think everything centers around her? She's just a publicity seeking moron who really should be behind bars considering all of the dirt she has managed to cover up in Alaska

tmz, you've reached a new low. There is NOTHING funny about someone burning a church, regardless of who attends....they are houses of worship for believers and you should be ashamed!~

Stalkerazzi sucks    

Obam is a con man, the only con is the President we have in office now, which I'm sure with your warped logic, you are partly responsible for putting into office, and therefore, responsible for the state of the world currently. If you want to throw out accusations and pointing fingers, point it at yourself first.

And as for Palin, I would not be surprised if she started the fire herself just to stay relevant LOL (it's a joke before someone blows a fuses in her defense)

Please, don't try to blame this on Obama supporters! We don't do things like that! We believe in peace and harmony! Sounds more like something Palin's "base would do. They are the violent ones.

That wasn't the church where the witchcraft ceremony took place.
That was her old church.

Is there any doubt that this "suspicious fire" was started by one of the idiots that voted for the Messiah?

But it's OK because it was a Christian church.

What occurred at this church is not about hate towards Ms. Palin, a second runner-up in a beauty contest, by either Democrats, Independents, or the smaller percentage of sane Republicans (who purge at the sound of her voice and sight of her face) but the crazy ghouls she brought out while on the campaign trail. It has been a long time, possibly since the days of George Wallace, that America has witnessed such a despicable and narrow-minded candidate on the campaign trail. What she attempted to do to the first viable African-American of mixed blood through her incitement of bigotry and hate among the ignorant of our society is unforgivable behavior and she should never be rewarded with a future position in either the Houses of Congress, White House, or any Federal agency. The taxpayers of Alaska have a right to be unhappy with this woman (with the revelations that came from the campaign trail) and, hopefully, will eventually remove her from office.
