Dear God, Please Protect Us From Sarah Palin

posted by on September 24 at 14:18 PM


The video of Kenyan pastor Thomas Muthee praying over Sarah Palin at the Wasilla Assembly of God church has resurfaced, and holy crap, what a video it is. Some choice excerpts:

In a moment I’ll be asking you to pray for Sarah… I tell you something, if all we do is get people to the church and get them saved… I don’t think much will happen in our society. There are people who are wired to politics, because God wants to take the political, you know, dimension of our societies. Those people should be prayed for, and that’s why I was so glad to see Sarah here. We should pray for her. We should buck her up. And come the day of voting we should not just pray for her, we should be there. … If the believers had not done something in this country, your president would not be in office today.

We need believers who are educationists. If we hired them today, we would not be talking about the ten commandments being kicked… out of the schools. They would still be there. We need god taking over our education system. If we have God in our schools, we will not have our kids being taught how to worship Buddha, how to worship Muhammad. We will not have in the curriculum witchcraft and sorcery. …

We need believers [in government]. We need men and women of integrity… people that are born-again, spirit-filled people who know God and people who are serious with God. So in a moment… I’ll ask Sarah to come up. Please let’s stand up, and let’s hold hands all over this house. …

[Palin walks up to the front of the chapel; two men flank her and lay hands on her, as does Muthee.]

Give her the personnel. Give her men and women that will buck her up. In the name of Jesus, we want righteousness in this state, we want righteousness in this nation… so that the curse that has been on them can be broken. … In the name of Jesus, every form of witchcraft is what we rebuke.

They've just endorsed a political candidate very openly (with video proof, no less). Shouldn't the IRS be rescending their tax-exempt status like right now?

There's "witchcraft and sorcery" in our school cirriculum?

Oh wait, that must just be fundamentalist Christian code for "science and rational thought".

More people would look on this approvingly than not, unfortunately.

nothing she does there is going to change this fucked up campaign one iota.

if she's fallen on the carpet ululating, maybe.

Educationists is my new favorite word. My friends who are teachers should now list their occupations as "Educationist". I love it.

I'm glad I got my witchcraft and soccery requirements out of the way in high school. Now I can focus on my degree in advanced sodomy.

@1 - apparently, these preachin'-style-folks, when it comes to lightly mixing a dollop of state into their church, have to get caught at it at least 3 times before any action can be taken. Then, they would only likely get a mere 'warning'. (It goes on their Permanent Record.) But since they seem to love makin' these here vidyos to immortalize their soon-to-be-Raptured selves, finding two more examples ought not to be very difficult.

God, liberal-mainline Christians are so boring by comparison.
