This is the woman the US corporate media are hailing as a “star is born” – the new US vice-presidential candidate from the Republican party.
This from an AP report:
ANCHORAGE, Alaska – 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.”…
Palin asked the students to pray for the troops in Iraq, and noted that her eldest son, Track, was expected to be deployed there.
“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.”
What utter rubbish. She should look up her bible.
When the Romans came to arrest Jesus, Peter drew out his sword to save Jesus, but Jesus admonished him.
This is from Matthew Chapter 26:
Then they came forward, seized Jesus and arrested him.
51 And suddenly, one of the followers of Jesus grasped his sword and drew it; he struck the high priest’s servant and cut off his ear.
52 Jesus then said, ‘Put your sword back, for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.’
Clearly Jesus was against the use of violence even when his own life was in extreme danger. It’s amazing how some people can use Christianity to justify their war-mongering. Next thing she will be saying is that it’s God’s will for the United States to occupy Iraq and control its oil wealth while creating a situation that has led to the loss of over a million Iraqi lives.
