Sarah Palin: Never presume to know what God’s will is. And I would never presume to know God’s will or to speak God’s words….
Charles Gibson: I take your point about Lincoln’s words, but you went on and said, “there is a plan, and it is God’s plan.”
Sarah Palin: I believe that there is a plan for this world, and that plan for this world is for good. I believe there is great hope and great potential for every country to be able to live and be protected with inalienable rights that I believe are God-given, Charlie. And I believe that those are the rights to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That in my world view is a grand, the grand plan.
— Sarah Palin to Charles Gibson, September 11 2008.
Who me, speak for God? He told me to tell you that I’d never do that, Charlie.
