Palin’s Radical Pastor Calls on God to ‘Bless’ USA

(2008-09-06) — In the days following Gov. Sarah Palin’s appointment as John McCain’s running mate, Americans have grown increasingly concerned about her brand of radical Christianity. A new recording released to the media today by Barack Obama’s campaign, gives definitive proof that Gov. Palin’s pastor, in an emotional tirade, once called on God to “bless” America.

The recording captured at Wasilla Bible Church, the Palin’s home congregation, will doubtless cause discomfort among educated Americans, and raises new questions about Gov. Palin’s worldview.

“It’s provincial, primitive and mythological,” said one unnamed Obama staffer. “Presumably, if she became president, Sarah Palin would invite this fringe religious freak into the White House, where he would have unprecedented access and influence, asking his alleged God to bless the administration, and the nation at large.”

Democrat insiders wondered how Mrs. Palin could have sat under the so-called “Biblical” teaching of this man for years without challenging his pleas for divine favor upon the nation which most intellectuals agree is the world’s leading source of oppression and greenhouse gases.

    Have you noticed John can raise his
    right arm over his head?
    Is this the Sarah effect?

    It seems like John can raise his right arm
    higher now. Is this the Sarah effect?

    The first thing I’ve seen that looks to be possibly effective in blocking B.O. in November I’ve already sent it to every e-mail address I have:

    Well, we certainly don’t want something that is too offensive for our school children to besmirch the hallowed halls of our government.

    Wow, Fred, that is heavy, heavy stuff! Thanks for the link.

    Yes, B.O. stinks

    As many know, I’m in Alaska and have been for over 30 years. Got two calls today from Liberals I’ve know for years:

    From Massachusetts, family with husband, wife, daughters ages 31 and 42. He says the stuff being spready by Obama forces is so disgusting that he and the older daughter will, first time in their lives vote Republican, for McCain. Wife won’t vote for Obama but can’t bring herself to vote McCain so will go with Nader. Younger daughter staying with Obama but older daughter nagging her to “Grown up and quit thinking you’re the start of ‘Desperate Housewifes’”. If any doubt they are liberals, consider daughters 31 and 42 living “at home”.

    California call: Woman in early 60s, divorced three times. Wanted to know if all the rumors about Palin are true. Fortunately I paused before answering. She continued…. “’cause if they are, I’m voting for her! She’s MY KIND OF WOMAN”.

    Go figure….

    Nowadays, those are relatively radical sentiments…which I am proud to say that I share. :-)

    I can not help but note the two facedness of Her Highness “The Oprah”

    OPRAH’S STATEMENT: “The item in today’s Drudge Report is categorically untrue. There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show.[her own staff is vehemently split 50/50 on Sarah being on the show (but why would Sarah even want to be on a Communist's TV show] At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over.” [When Obama is back to organizing communities in Chicago again and Sarah is the new V.P.]

    The Oprah Winfrey Show (and Obama was there too)

    The charismatic Democrat with his eye on the presidency would normally take centre-stage but not when the queen of American daytime television is on the same bill. Leonard Doyle reports from Des Moines on a powerful POLITICAL PARTNERSHIP

    Monday, 10 December 2007

    “Oh my goodness, at last, I’m here.” So spoke Oprah Winfrey, the queen of afternoon TV as nervously at first, she dipped her toe into American politics and threw her celebrity behind the resurgent campaign of Barack Obama.

    B.O. STINKS (it’s getting badder and badder)
