Sarah Palin has been running a Church/State governorship in Alaska

As Sarah Palin stands before her supporters, they want to hear the word of gawd and how Sarah has a direct link to gawd. They hang on her every word and some even start talking in tongues to answer her calling…
Isn’t that nice? John McCain’s VP pick, Sarah Palin, has been using her time as governor of Alaska (less than 2 years) as a way to get that ‘sane’ Pentecostal beliefs out there! Oh yes. It’s okay for her to do this and for the people of Alaska to pay her as if she’s Jesus on the payroll, but if anyone in America says they don’t believe in Jesus and thinks religion should be kept out of politics, Sarah Palin and her ilk will run these people off the road and then chase them down and kill them. Why? Because they’re American Taliban Christians! Even the Taliban in Afghanistan uses their own wacked religious ideologies to rally their supporters!
From The New York Times (emphasis mine):
What she didn’t tell worshippers gathered at the Wasilla Assembly of God church in her hometown was that her appearance that day came courtesy of Alaskan taxpayers, who picked up the $639.50 tab for her airplane tickets and per diem fees.
An Associated Press review of the Republican vice presidential candidate’s record as mayor and governor reveals her use of elected office to promote religious causes, sometimes at taxpayer expense and in ways that blur the line between church and state.
Since she took state office in late 2006, the governor and her family have spent more than $13,000 in taxpayer funds to attend at least 10 religious events and meetings with Christian pastors, including Franklin Graham, the son of evangelical preacher Billy Graham, records show.
”As I’m doing my job, let’s strike this deal. Your job is going be to be out there, reaching the people — (the) hurting people — throughout Alaska,” she told students graduating from the church’s Masters Commission program. ‘‘We can work together to make sure God’s will be done here.”
Why can’t a Pentecostal wacko as Sarah Palin is, just say as Governor, “As human beings, we must reach out to each other and help each other as much as we can. Please spend each and every day finding ways to help your neighbors out”. Oh, but no! She has to invoke gawd into the mix instead and only says stuff like this when she’s being paid by Alaskans to go to churches throughout the state!
George Bush & Adolph Hitler did this kind of campaigning and rallying of their supporters. George Bush said on one occassion that gawd told him to attack Iraq, and his supporters believed him. This is why today these same supporters are fine with our troops in Iraq killing Iraqis in an illegal occupation. They think gawd wants this to happen! On the other hand, Adolph Hitler acted as if gawd’s hands were around him and even went so far to make up his own religion to convince his supporters that what he was doing was what gawd intended and wanted him to do.
Scary. All right wingers are scary, but the most scariest of them all are those ones who use religion/gawd as a way to dupe the people into doing something they want done or to create a fake atmosphere of ‘doing good’, when rather, it’s hateful.
And no Sarah, the financial crisis our country is currently going through and mostly caused by McCain and those connected to him (former Enron Senator Phil Gramm comes to mind), a prayer to gawd isn’t going to help! Remember this. Spit.
