Election Snippet: Sarah Palin’s Witch- Hunting, Demon- Believing Church

Palin church
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.

No, really.

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.

    I wish I could believe that people knowing about and fully comprehending these facts would make more of a difference when it came to voting, but I’m feeling pretty darn cynical at the moment.

    Holy crap, these are scary people. Psychotics! You gotta wonder how they’d react if someone was proselytizing at them, in that way – hollering and falling down – about something other than what they believe in. They’d call 911 and have the person put away!

    The part of this video that creeped me out the most, and that seemed the most telling, was the song they were singing at the service: “This world has nothing for me. I will follow you.”
    Why take care of the environment, because we’ll all get yanked up to heaven when the rapture comes. Why bother with diplomacy to end conflict? It doesn’t matter if we all die, because the believers will go to heaven. Who cares about genocide, pollution, economic collapse? God will sort it all out on the other side.
    And why think for yourself when someone else is happy to do it for you? Follow. Obey. Surrender your grip on reality.
    It doesn’t get much scarier than this, and the thought of one of them in the White House sounds like the plot of a Stephen King novel.

    Seriously. Why the hell would I want someone to be the leader of the most powerful nation in the world, when they don’t care about the world and think it has nothing for them?

    sweet jesus, those people are wacked totally out. I am getting out of this nation if Obama can’t manage to wipe the walls with Mcain. It has been said a million times before and it has always been true. This is the worst it has ever been, and we might just end up with that chucklehead running the country. I am the fuck out of here. France is looking pretty good these days.
