This is unacceptable

It's no secret that I am a fairly vocal atheist, and that I not only supported Obama in the latest US election, but also opposed McCain especially because of his appointment of Palin as VP.

Still, I find this sort of things completely unacceptable.

Palin’s Church Is Badly Damaged by Fire

Gov. Sarah Palin's home church was badly damaged by arson, leading the governor to apologize if the fire was connected to ''undeserved negative attention'' from her failed campaign as the Republican vice presidential nominee.

No matter how much you oppose someone politically, there is no excuse for this sort of things. Especially not when doing so put other people at risk:

Damage to the Wasilla Bible Church was estimated at $1 million, authorities said Saturday. No one was injured in the fire, which was set Friday night while a handful of people, including two children, were inside, according to Central Mat-Su Fire Chief James Steele.

I hope they catch the people responsible for this.

I do not condone church burning - burning anything while people are inside! - but from what I know of that church, Palin would be only one reason somebody might not like them.

But again, I second you.

Right on. This kind of crime should be punished.

This is a shameful act. Remember, churches were bombed and burned during the civil rights movement to intimidate black organizers. It is a form of terrorism. There is no justification for it, even if it is directed at people I dislike.
