Palin’s Religious Beliefs Are The Same As Middle America’s
By: Marie Jon'
As the “drive-by-media” continues to look at every aspect of Sarah Palin’s personal and religious life, they are digging themselves into a big hole, turning what they believe will cause her harm, to work for her good. If you take nothing else from this, remember this quote: Bitter Pennsylvanians “cling to their guns and religion.” â€” Barack Obama
Reporters for CNN and other networks are not prepared to write honestly or objectively about matters of faith. These are people who view life from a much different perspective. They are not so naive to overlook that Christians from all denominations are offended by such things as CNN’s hit piece about Gov. Palin’s faith.
The mass media and the Obama camp want to paint a ridiculous picture of Christians who refuse to embrace progressive liberal doctrine. Atheist George Soros ingratiates leftist denominations with his money. The teachings of the “Religious Left” have little to do with the Gospel of the Holy Bible.
The National Council of Churches is unorthodox to say the least. Most of their churches promote homosexuality and abortion on demand. Senator Obama attended such a church for twenty years, a church with no moral constraints. The congregation’s “faith” is fueled by angry, bigoted, anti-Semitic, anti-American, hate filled sermons.
It is apparent that the prejudiced media wants us to believe that a mainstream denomination such as the Assemblies of God can be compared to the church of “God Damn America.” Pentecostals preach a traditional interpretation of the scriptures. There is no Marxist Black Liberation theology taught within their sanctuaries, nor any other quasi-political or racist dogma.
The vicious attacks by the DNC towards the Republican female Vice-Presidential candidate are overwhelming, and speak volumes about the Obama campaign. Their recent remarks more than smack of sexism. Obama continues to get a pass from the agenda-driven media who worships at the altar of liberalism. Our nation, however, was founded upon Judeo-Christian beliefs.
The preamble of our constitution states:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Americans are becoming more and more aware that the people whose job it is to bring us the news have been politically in the tank for the far left wing of the Democrat Party. As shown by recent polls, their credibility with the public is falling.
It is pathetic that CNN would go to the Assemblies of God Church with a team of reporters and cameras for skullduggery. Sarah Palin now attends the Wasilla Bible Church. Her church, as well as all other Protestant Evangelical churches, are strong supporters of the state of Israel. No doubt that this further disqualifies Palin in the eyes of these Marxists.
Whether you are a Baptist, Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopalian or Presbyterian, you understand biblical teachings, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
News Flash (no pun intended): Practicing Christians understand the WORD. We may differ in our style of worship, but that is where the difference stops.
Protestants, Catholics, Jews and Mormons â€” particularly in America â€” all have a heritage of faith that respects one another. We are tolerant of all religious beliefs. It is time for the media to do likewise.
Excerpts from CNNPolitics.com: Pastor: GOP may be downplaying Palin’s religious beliefs
“WASILLA, Alaska (CNN) â€” For more than two decades, vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin was a practicing Pentecostal.” Sarah Palin asked church members to pray for $30 billion natural gas pipeline in Alaska.
“She belonged to the Wasilla Assembly of God church in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska. But though she attended the church from her teenage years to 2002, the Alaska governor hasn’t talked much about her religion since joining the Republican ticket.
“Palin’s former pastor, Tim McGraw, says that like many Pentecostal churches, some members speak in tongues, although he says he’s never seen Palin do so. Church member Caroline Spangler told CNN, ‘When the spirit comes on you, you utter things that nobody else can understand … only God can understand what is coming out of our mouths.’
“Some Pentecostals from Assembly of God also believe in ‘faith healing’ and the ‘end times’ â€” a violent upheaval that they believe will deliver Jesus Christ’s second coming’
“The McCain campaign says the governor doesn’t consider herself Pentecostal.
“McGraw says Palin’s Pentecostal roots may be being downplayed for a reason: ‘I think there may be issues of belief that could be misunderstood or played upon by people that don’t know.’
“When asked by CNN about Palin’s beliefs, campaign spokeswoman Meghan Stapleton would only say the Republican vice presidential candidate has ‘deep religious convictions.’ candidate has “deep religious convictions.” Full Article http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/09/08/palin.pastor/index.html
The Democrat’s reader email of the day is a rallying cry for the Obamanites to call radio programs and repeat: “Mrs. Palin needs to be reminded that Jesus Christ was a community organizer and Pontius Pilate was a governor.” Johnatan Martin-Politico.com
Their latest talking points expose the lack of their constituent’s knowledge about the role of Christ’s earthly ministry. Christ came to redeem all mankind, not organize a Chicago community.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the Democrats sent more than thirty lawyers and researchers to Alaska solely for the purpose of trying to find dirt on Sarah Palin. This effort and the media’s attacks on Palin’s religious beliefs will only further erode the Obama campaign.
I hope they keep up the good work.
