Today’s election snippet is about Sarah Palin… and the religious beliefs of her church. Which encompass beliefs in, among other things, witchcraft, demonic possession, the idea that certain geographical locations are demonic strongholds, the regeneration of limbs by faith healing (take that, all you Why Won’t God Heal Amputees heathens!), the imminent end of the world, and the belief that the Holy Spirit can be transmitted by cel phone.
And that is training a Christian army to take over the United States and the world.
I’m going to be bringing up Palin a lot in these election snippets. Partly because she’s such an easy target… but mostly because the prospect of her as President of the United States is both terrifying and terrifyingly plausible. If John McCain is elected, a conservative actuarial estimate gives him a 1 in 3 chance of dying in office. And that’s not even taking into account either his history of cancer or the excessive stress of being President.
And before you ask… no, I don’t think it’s bigoted to question the religious beliefs of a political candidate. We’re supposed to judge people on the content of their character… and what people believe, and how they act on those beliefs, is a major part of that character.
A vote for McCain is very likely a vote for Palin. Please watch this video, and decide if you want to vote for Palin.
Video found via the Huffington Post, which has a good, thorough article on the subject of Palin’s extremist church. Video below the fold, since putting it above the fold mucks up my archives.
