    I don’t know of anyone…even the craziest of politicians who would be “FOR WAR”! I do know that if the time comes and we need to stand up and fight…I want a bible speaking, God believing, person with integrity, confidence and strength to be my leader! Think about this… Even if there was no God however we all based our lives on what the scriptures read how much better of a world would this be? Again…I am only stating “what if”. I do believe there is and have seen miracles happen. I have felt the spirit of the Lord speak to my thoughts and have received guidance that has made profound changes in my life. Please don’t close this door… My God is a patient God and he will NEVER make you do something against your will.

  • Horatio

    Yes you do know a crazy politician who is for war. You know of Sarah Palin.

    Sarah Palin says that the Iraq War is a task from God.

  • prescott

    The wonderful thing about our great country is that joining the armed forces is a “CHOICE”…. Similar to abortion rights and being pro-choice. I truly believe people take the words “for war” out of context.

    We need to protect our country and unfortunately…some times this means going to war. I hope you appreciate those that have gone before us…risking and some losing their lives for YOUR FREEDOM and for others who claim to be “against war”. It would be devestating to see where our country would be right now had we not taken a stand during times of war.

    Just think…you and I probably would not even have the freedom to debate this issue!

  • Horatio

    What exactly is there, prescott, in Sarah Palin’s declaration of June of this year at the Wasilla Assemblies of God church that the war in Iraq is a “task from God” that you don’t understand?

    The war in Iraq has done nothing to preserve my freedoms. In fact, the war in Iraq has been used as an excuse to decrease my freedoms under the first and fourth amendments in the bill of rights.

    Your comment is thoroughly uninformed.

    Sarah Palin is insane.

  • Veronica

    Maybe you all did not watch the entire video, as the newscasters only showed deliberately chosen parts of the video. Just because you may not understand someone’s religious views does not mean you have to belittle them. Sarah Palin DID NOT call the war God’s will. She talked about praying that God’s will would be done. What that means is praying that the outcome will be in the hands of God, not ourselves as imperfect beings. Christians believe that God has a will and plan for all of us, including during tough times. None of us want war, but sometimes it happens and we (as Christians) pray that God will work through this. I know it sounds “odd” if you are not of a religious background. Sarah Palin has had an experience of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I am not sure why people find that so offensive or frightening; they just don’t understand it and that leads to comments as stated above. Why don’t you ask questions and find out about her beliefs before attacking her on something you know nothing about. Remember…”The man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument.”

  • Veronica, watched the entire video, listened to everything Sarah Palin had to say. She said that the Iraq war is a “task from God”.

    She thinks that God wants all the bombing and shooting and kidnapping and killing. Yes, that’s offensive. Yes, that’s weird. Yes, someone who really believes that should not be placed next in line to become President of the United States.

  • prescott

    My final comment will be that I agree with Veronica. I am not here to pass judgement on what someone’s spiritual background is however if I was to, I could exploit the fact that Obama referred to himself as a “Muslim”…then corrected himself and said “Christian” on Hannity. What some don’t understand is that our will always wins over God’s will. He is a respector of persons. If we decide we are going to do something….God will allow it to happen. God allows many things to happen and when we realize we are not omnipotent….we are able to realize God is. For non-believers, hearing someone speak of God’s will can sometime be confusing because you are unable to grasp the context of what a Christian means. Sarah Palin is no more insane than any of us debating this matter. Words like that are often used to describe someone’s emotions about someone however to the mentally ill…it’s a state of being… It’s all about who’s saying it to whom and the context of what it means… We need to be much smarter in our communication rather than to mutilate someone’s belief’s just because they are different than what you believe.

  • Jim

    Wow. So both you and Sarah Palin think you know the mind of God. I wouldn’t want to let you near the White House either. That doesn’t make me a hater. It makes me careful.

  • So, prescott, can you explain how you think that the Iraq War is a “task from God”?

  • prescott

    Jim…You just proved my point! You did not understand a thing I said, instead, you mocked me by insinuating that I said something I did not.

    OC… I do not think the war is “of God”…however I do believe that God will take a situation created by man and turn it into something that Glorifies Him and creates peace for the people & nations who suffer unjustly.

    OC, I guess you could call this a “task from God” when you read my opinion on a Christian’s public and private belief’s:

    PRIVATE VS. PUBLIC ROLES – Pacifists fail to make a clear distinction between a Christian’s private and public views. In Romans 12-13 we find Paul’s explanation of the role of the Christian and the State. Here he explains the distinctions between how Christian’s are to conduct themselves privately and publicly—how we are to manage our person, and how we are to manage our office.

    In Romans 12:17-21, The verse states the responsibility of a Christian as an INDIVIDUAL. “Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. If possible…” Notice the qualifier, “if possible.” “If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.”

    In this verse Paul is saying there will be times when you cannot be at peace with all men. But when it is possible, when it depends on you, as an individual, strive for peace.

    “Never take your own revenge, beloved, but LEAVE ROOM FOR THE WRATH OF GOD, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord. But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

    So yes…. I guess this is a “task from God”!! (Task (defined as): job; chore; duty; mission; commission; assignment; charge; undertaking)

    This is now an undertaking of God and I am thankful for HIM…

  • prescott

    J.Clifford…I meant to put your name…not OC…OC was someone else I had responded to…sorry! :)

  • Jim

    No, you did say it. You have more than once at this website characterized the mind of God and indicated that you had inside knowledge of the mind of God. You spend a great deal of time telling people who and what God is and is not, and then when people ask you how you know, you reply that we sinner beam types wouldn’t understand. I’m not mocking you to tell you that I wouldn’t want to let someone who claims to have knowledge of the Supreme Supernatural Ruler of the Universe near the White House. I’m telling you my honest reaction. My reaction is based on history. Rulers who claim to have God on their side have been responsible for a large share of the suffering in this world. I’m not having any more of that.

  • prescott

    Jim…this must be your website! I merely shared my opinion and belief’s as others have. You do a GREAT job of taking things out of context. You have made claim to “Rulers who claim to have God on their side have been responsible for a large share of the suffering in this world”… Again, God gave us free will… what we do is a choice and those who blame God are ignorant to believe the words coming from a person stating such. Many use God’s name in vain therefore I somewhat understand where you are coming from. Having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is a PERSONAL choice however manifests itself in all areas of a persons life. I believe people should be known by their actions and not by the words they spew from their lips or others. As far as your statement “You have more than once at this website characterized the mind of God and indicated that you had inside knowledge of the mind of God. You spend a great deal of time telling people who and what God is and is not, and then when people ask you how you know, you reply that we sinner beam types wouldn’t understand”. I guess I should have said “You didn’t really hear a thing I said” instead of “understand”. When someone is passionate about what they believe to be true, they tend to have selective hearing. I work hard to be diverse in my thinking because I know that none of us really know 100% of the truth. However regarding the “sinner beam type” comment… I am a sinner.. We all are sinners!! It is by the grace of God that we are able to be forgiven of our sins. Trust me… I am not a Bible thumping, church going person however my belief in God stems from the words I have studied in the Bible and from my personal experience and relationship with Jesus.

  • Mort

    Prescott/Mrs.Palin,
    I’m sorry, but you appear to be suffering delusions. Fundamentalists (of all religions) use their chosen “god” and associated writings to justify whatever actions seem like a good idea.
    It was ever thus, claim divine instruction and people will follow. But this is the 21st century – anyone who converses with a “god” will either, depending on country and circumstance:
    1. be placed in a secure hospital and treated for mental illness, possibly before they carry out “gods” instructions to rape/murder, or;
    2. be elected president and allowed to kill thousands of innocent people.

  • Jim

    You know, Prescott, you have the right to say what you’re going to say about what the Supreme Invisible Ruler of the Universe is or is not, but until you prove it to me, I’m just not going to believe you. I’m altogether undisturbed that you continue to believe what you believe so long as you don’t try to use power to enforce your beliefs upon me.

    The day someone who makes the same sorts of claims about the Supreme Invisible Ruler of the Universe about you decides to run for office, and has a history of declaring support for draconian policies on the basis of what this imagined Supreme Invisible Ruler of the Universe tells him or her, I will oppose that person’s ascension to office.

    Sarah Palin is that sort of person, at least when it applies to gas pipelines, abortion rights and education. I will oppose Sarah Palin’s ascension to office.

  • "prescott the wise"

    Not to worry Jim… My vote will cancel your vote. You have the right to believe what you choose as I do however I do believe McCain will win this election.

    Regarding the “Supreme Invisible Ruler”… I once believed like you. I do not believe in forcing others to believe the same as I do however I do feel sad for someone who has no belief at all. Why live?

    Fortunatly for all of you who choose to have leaders without morals… I am done communicating for now. I need to get back to work and finish my reports. You can find someone else to debate, mock or insult…because in your eyes…YOU ARE RIGHT! :)

    “We need to protect our country and unfortunately…some times this means going to war. I hope you appreciate those that have gone before us…risking and some losing their lives for YOUR FREEDOM and for others who claim to be ‘against war’. It would be devestating to see where our country would be right now had we not taken a stand during times of war.”
    –Prescott

    What a curiously contorted logic Prescott is using: It is sometimes necessary to protect a country by going to war, therefore every military action the United States has performed has functioned to protect the freedoms of Americans.

    Even if we grant the initial premise(a single positive instance suffices for a premise including the word “sometimes”), the conclusion hardly follows.

    Would it really be so “devestating” to see where the United States would be right now if we hadn’t performed all of our recent military actions?

    If Nixon had not bombed Cambodia?
    If Reagan had not bombed Libya?
    If Bush the First had not invaded Panama?
    If Clinton had not invaded Somalia?

    Perhaps Prescott could walk us through the logic by which he concluded that each of these military actions functioned to preserve the freedoms of Americans?

    He can’t, obviously, because none of these countries posed any threat to the freedoms of Americans at home, and therefore none of these military actions did anything to preserve our freedoms.

    It’s a lovely ironic little fictional trope though–our men and women in uniform fighting to protect the freedom of the very ingrates who complain about them fighting to protect our freedom to complain about them… Delightful little cycle of absurdity there, which certainly accounts for its appeal. Unfortunately, it’s utter bull (which is hardly grounds, it seems, for conservatives to cease repeating it ad nauseum).

    “Regarding the “Supreme Invisible Ruler”… I once believed like you. I do not believe in forcing others to believe the same as I do however I do feel sad for someone who has no belief at all. Why live?”

    Not believing what you believe is not the same as “no belief at all.” I believe a lot of things. And not sharing your supernatural belief does not make me someone “without morals.”

    You know, you can only do the “goodbye cruel world” thing leaving this website so many times.
