Sarah Palin: Iraq War A “Task From God”
Just three months ago, Sarah Palin addressed the graduating glass of her former church, the Wasilla Assembly of God, headed by her own Jeremiah Wright, Ed Kalnins (And you’ll be hearing more about him).
Speaking before the Pentecostal church, Palin painted the current war in Iraq as a messianic affair in which the United States could act out the will of the Lord.
Far be it from me to know what God’s plan is for any particular pubic policy, but apparently Governor Palin’s powers of divination are much better than mine.
“Our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God,” she said. “That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that plan is God’s plan.”
But it’s not just the Iraq war where Palin believes God has a plan for her to implement:
…she’d work to implement God’s will from the governor’s office, including creating jobs by building a pipeline to bring North Slope natural gas to North American markets.
“God’s will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that,” she said.
“I can do my job there in developing our natural resources and doing things like getting the roads paved and making sure our troopers have their cop cars and their uniforms and their guns, and making sure our public schools are funded,” she added. “But really all of that stuff doesn’t do any good if the people of Alaska’s heart isn’t right with God.”
Oh, and do you want to know about some of the sermons Palin sat through from the time she was a teenager until she left the church in 2002?
The section of the church’s Web site where videos of past sermons were posted was shut down Wednesday, and a message was posted saying that the site “was never intended to handle the traffic it has received in the last few days.”
Too much web traffic? Or a fear that Democrats will traffic in a Jeremiah Wright-type DVD of Ed Kalnins’ geatest hits?Click here for reuse options!
