So says UPI:
Federal investigators say that the arsonist who set fire to the church Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin attends poured accelerant around entrances and exits.
Chemical analysis of samples taken from the building could take several weeks, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said Monday.
Previously it sounded as if the fire was set at just one entrance. This makes it sound as if the arsonist (or arsonists) wanted to kill anyone inside.
Writer Doug Patton at the Post Chronicle makes an interesting comparison:
This is a tale of two American churches. One is in a major city. The other is in a small town. One preaches hatred of America and its institutions. The other preaches love and patriotism. One is infected with a toxic dogma known as Black Liberation Theology. The other espouses the Gospel of Jesus Christ. One was just firebombed. Guess which one.
I’m going to go with…The one opposed by liberal kooks.
