The Witch Hunting Pastor Laying Hands On Sarah Palin

Posted by drewbendon on September 27, 2008

You need to watch for yourself. Please consider that he outlines the seven places their religion needs to invade society. In case you think that this is some irrelevant thing from her past, note that as recently as June of this year, she spoke affectionately of the experience. Keith Olberman gets into it here.

Puts some new perspective on Obama’s pastorgate.

Obama’s guy speaking from the context of the African American church experience has argued that America’s historical treatment of African Americans, even in the post slavery and post civil rights eras, is one of subjugation and he also is taken to task for suggesting that our own actions may have incited the 9/11 terrorists. Given the context in which his statements were made and given the continuing and pervasive levels of poverty and incarceration in the African American community and the possibility that the global war on terror may actually be breeding terrorists in larger numbers and globalizing localized actors in a way that might not have existed previously, these “incendiary” ideas deserve some intellectual consideration.

On the other hand you’ve got Palin’s guy hunting witches and promoting a theocracy. Last time I checked one of the things we claim to be fighting for is the First Amendment. Sometimes we seem to forget what it says.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances
