I swear, this blog will not become all-Sarah-Palin, all-the-time.
But for now…
Ken Silverstein and Sebastian Jones of Harper’s Magazine have been going through the speeches of Sarah Palin’s pastors.
What they found includes the following (from two different pastors):
From an April 27, 2008 sermon: “If you really want to know where you came from and happen to believe the word of God that you are not a descendant of a chimpanzee, this is what the word of God says. I believe this version.”
From a July 8, 2007 sermon: “Those that die without Christ have a horrible, horrible surprise.”
From an November 25, 2007 sermon: “The purpose for the United States is… to glorify God. This nation is a Christian nation.”
From an October 28, 2007 sermon: “God will not be mocked. I don’t care what the ACLU says. God will not be mocked. I don’t care what atheists say. God will not be mocked. I don’t care what’s going on in the nation today with so much horrific rebellion and sin and things that take place. God will not be mocked. Judgment Day is coming. Where do you stand?”
While words of the pastor don’t necessarily reflect beliefs of the listener (case in point: Barack Obama), Palin’s conservative profile seems to say she accepts all these ideas.
