Where’s the outrage?

Posted by sanityinjection on December 16, 2008

You may not have heard about it, because the media doesn’t seem to care, but the church attended by Governor Sarah Palin, the Wasilla Bible Church, was set on fire and badly damaged Friday evening.

I didn’t want to jump to conclusions, so I waited until now to post about it to make sure that the evidence was clear: ATF investigators have found that an accelerant was poured around the outside of the church. This fire was a deliberate arson.

It should be immediately obvious that the church was targeted because of Governor Palin. (How many church burnings are there in Alaska?) That makes this a political hate crime. You would think that would be big news for the mainstream media – imagine if someone who didn’t like Obama had torched Rev. Wright’s church, for example. But apparently church burnings only matter if they are black churches. Nobody cares if a white people’s church is set on fire.

Add to that the fact that the media still are not convinced that Alaska is one of the 50 states or that people who live there have discovered fire. Sadly, this event is proof of the latter.

I maintain that any attack on a peaceful religious institution is a moral outrage and should be forcefully condemned. But apparently I am just old-fashioned, it’s not hip and cool anymore to believe that the lives of WASPs are just as precious as anyone else’s.

    The media would have been all over it if it would have been about B. Hussein Obama church! I have lost all hope for the media and starting to think the same of our once powerful country!

  2. I shudder at what the response would have been like had a “black” church or Obama’s church been harmed/burned.

    Nice site by the way.
