    That's really unfortunate on many levels. First, that the policy prevented the saving of a house and belongings. Second, that the residents hadn't paid the $75 fee for the services. Third, that the fire was allowed to get so out of hand. Starting in barrels and spreading from there should have been avoidable with due diligence.

    If that were to happen to me, I'd probably have a rather violent initial knee-jerk reaction.
    Thank god the courts have something known as "temporary insanity."

    Bryan Fischer at the American Family Association’s blog has heard about this situation with the family that didn’t pay their $75 annual fee to be rescued from dying in a house fire, and he has thankfully decided for us What Would Jesus Have Done. Jesus would have shown compassion, right? Haha, no, do you think Jesus was a fag or something? This post is, in all seriousness, entitled “Firefighters did the Christian thing in letting house burn to the ground.” Oh, right, of course.

    He didn't die in that fire, receive injuries, or lose his money.

    Question- would it have been reasonable to pay the fee after the firefighters put out the fire? Even little kids know that it's better late than never. icon_rolleyes.gif Shit- I would pay $500 not to lose my $80k house.

    I was thinking the same thing. I would definitely pay what I could not to let my house burn to the ground.
