Palin: Iraq war “a task that is from God”

Yahoo! News

09/04/08

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told ministry students at her former church that the United States sent troops to fight in the Iraq war on a ‘task that is from God.’ … In an address last June, the Republican vice presidential candidate also urged ministry students to pray for a plan to build a $30 billion natural gas pipeline in the state, calling it ‘God’s will.’ … Palin told graduating students of the church’s School of Ministry, ‘What I need to do is strike a deal with you guys.’ As they preached the love of Jesus throughout Alaska, she said, 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.” [editor’s note: This is a dangerous woman - MLS]

What’s the difference between Palin and Muslim fundamentalists?

Palin has a right to her religious beliefs, as do fundamentalist Muslims who agree with her on so many issues of social policy. None of them has a right, however, to impose their beliefs on others by capturing and deploying the executive power of the state. The most noxious belief that Palin shares with Muslim fundamentalists is her conviction that faith is not a private affair of individuals but rather a moral imperative that believers should import into statecraft wherever they have the opportunity to do so. That is the point of her pledge to shape the judiciary. Such a theocratic impulse is incompatible with the Founding Fathers’ commitment to tolerance and democracy, which is why they forbade the government to ‘establish’ or officially support any particular religion or denomination...

Palin: Wrong Woman, Wrong Message

Gloria Steinem, The Los Angeles Times: "Here's the good news: Women have become so politically powerful that even the anti-feminist right wing - the folks with a headlock on the Republican Party - are trying to appease the gender gap with a first-ever female vice president. We owe this to women - and to many men too - who have picketed, gone on hunger strikes or confronted violence at the polls so women can vote. We owe it to Shirley Chisholm, who first took the 'white-male-only' sign off the White House, and to Hillary Rodham Clinton, who hung in there through ridicule and misogyny to win 18 million votes."

Stop, In the Name of God

By Mamoon Alabbasi

Earlier this month, the Iraq war, arguably the biggest mass murder expedition of the twenty-first centaury, was branded by Republican vice-presidential pick Sarah Palin as a "task that is from God."

Is Sarah Palin's God a Liar and a War Criminal?

By Ed Ciaccio

I doubt any Christian, or any believer in God, for that matter, would claim that the supreme international war crime of waging aggressive war, especially one based on lies, was "a task that is from God." So is Sarah Palin deluded, ignorant, or just pandering to the worst, most extreme elements in our country?
