Palin's Church Burned, Arson Suspected
Gee, why would anyone want to torch a church that attracts ultra right wing fundamentalists who devote part of their ministry to curing homosexuals, among other things?
I'm not saying arson is a good thing, especially not to a place of worship.
I'm saying that karma has a way of settling the will of God and delivering strong messages.
Sarah Palin apologized to the members of the Wasilla Holy Roller Bible Church, "for bringing any negative publicity to the church by her affiliation with it."
I have no doubt her apology was in order.
When anyone stomps around, harshly judging everyone whose views differ from their own, they will attract some negativity.
When a church presumes to know a cure for a simple biological predisposition like homosexuality, that's not the word of God, that's the word of fanatics and control freaks who deny science and haughtily think they speak for God.
A million dollar fire will no doubt inconvenience the members of that church. They will have to raise funds to restore it, and I have a hunch it's not a particularly wealthy congregation.
Wouldn't it be amazing if that church's leaders looked to themselves and asked why anyone would want to burn down their church?
What if they examined their tenets and identified which ones would offend someone enough to want to destroy their church?
Wouldn't it be heavenly if they decided to become a more loving, inclusive congregation that truly celebrates the existence of a loving God, rather than condemning God's other children whose only fault is differing from their rigid mindset?
Yeah well, I somehow doubt that'll happen. These are the kind of people whose righteous indignation and sense of entitlement will forever pollute the message of Jesus and his dad.
Karma's a bitch, Wasilla fanatics. Deal with it.
