Sure the pastor at Barack Obama’s church may have said some stupid stuff about white people or whatever but, at the end of the day, his intentions were righteous and his message was intended to bring about positive change for his congregation and for society as a whole.
Sure Reverend Wright may have said some stupid stuff, but he never had any intention of taking over the country, installing a Christian government and forcing his beliefs on every citizen.
For over 25 years Palin and her family attended church at Wasilla Assembly of God. The church is a part of the ‘Spiritual Warfare’ movement which you may have seen in action in the movie “Jesus Camp.”
As a part of the New Apostolic Reformation church members believe in training a young “Joel’s Army” to take dominion over the United States and the world..
Now I’m not saying Palin believes all of the stuff her church and pastor, Ed Kalnins, believe – like replacing our democracy with a theocracy or “the possession of geographic territories by demonic spirits and the inter-generational transmission of family ‘curses'” – but if we are making the assumption that Obama believes and supports everything HIS pastor says then we should probably make the same assumption about Sarah Palin.
Again, I’m not saying Sarah Palin is a part of a Christian conspiracy with a plot to take over the government and supplant it with a Christofascist regime. But this theory certainly seems more reasonable and likely than any of the Obama-as-muslim-infiltrator smears we’ve been hearing since he started running.
If you ask me, supporting the overthrow of the US government is much, much worse than anything Obama’s pastor ever said.
