Sarah Palin Does Not Know God's Will

I’ve been trying to make patient, careful, reasonable arguments to people about the problems with Sarah Palin’s claims that she knows the will of God, and that God supports her political agenda – on war and even on fossil fuel pipelines.

This afternoon, I was engaged in one such effort to persuade someone, with sedate logical argument, about the problem of Sarah Palin’s claim to know the will of God. I stopped midsentence, and I realized the absurdity of what I was doing.

For a politician like Sarah Palin to claim that her political agenda is the will of God is not just problematic. It’s absolutely insane.

Sarah Palin thinks that the creator of the entire universe, with its trillions of galaxies, each with billions of stars and planets, across countless light years, is a political supporter of her plan for the war in Iraq, and a booster for a fossil fuel pipeline in Alaska. That isn’t just mistaken. It isn’t just overconfident.

It’s nuts. Nuts. Nuts.

If Sarah Palin really believes that her political agenda is the will of God, she doesn’t need to go to the White House. She needs to go see a psychiatrist and get some medication for the treatment of schizophrenia.

If you believe in God, that’s your business. It’s your right to believe with what you want, and I don’t want to interfere with it. However, I am sick and tired of politicians getting up on stage and pretending that there is a cosmic consciousness behind the entire universe that has endorsed their personal ambitions.

Sarah Palin isn’t just using politics to promote her religion. She’s using religion to promote her politics.

That’s crude. That’s rude. That’s crazy.

sarah palin word of god insaneYou’d have to be insane yourself to vote to put someone like that in the position, as Vice President, to become President and have control over the nuclear arsenal of the United States of America.

What will happen if Sarah Palin hears a voice in her head that she thinks is God, and it tells her to push The Button?

I don’t want to spend the next four years of my life worrying about that question. Sarah Palin is too mentally unstable to be trusted with the power of the White House. Let her go back to Wasilla and inflict her prophecies there.

    A politician channeling god. Sounds familiar.

    “I feel like God wants me to run for president,” Bush said. “I can’t explain it, but I sense my country is going to need me. Something is going to happen, and, at that time, my country is going to need me. I know it won’t be easy, on me or my family, but God wants me to do it.” “In fact,” Bush continued, “I really don’t want to run. My father was president. My whole family has been affected by it. I know the price. I know what it will mean. I would be perfectly happy to have people point at me someday when I’m buying fishing lures at Wal-Mart and say. ‘That was our governor.’ That’s all I want. And if I run for president, that kind of life will be over. My life will never be the same. But I feel God wants me to do this, and I must do it.” -Gov. George W. Bush commenting to James Robison (see: http://www.lifeoutreach.org/) (source: The Faith of George W. Bush by Stephen Mansfield)

    You reap what you sow. May all that she has done and continues to do be returned to her threefold.
