Sarah Palin’s Spiritual Mentor Does AIDS Faith Healing
Thanks again to our mysterious commenter Dark Energy for bringing news of the doings of Thomas Muthee.
For those of you who haven’t been following the story, Thomas Muthee is the man who gave Sarah Palin a ceremony of supernatural protection from witchcraft that just a few weeks ago Palin said gave her the power to become Governor of Alaska. Thomas Muthee came back to Sarah Palin’s home church in Wasilla, Alaska just a week and a half ago, urging Palin’s friends and neighbors to “crush the spirit of witchcraft” and to defeat demonic “python spirits”. Thomas Muthee gained his fame by contributing to a problem of widespread violence against people accused of witchcraft. Yes, Thomas Muthee hunts witches, having incited a violent mob to chase a woman out of town under the threat of stoning her to death, because Muthee accused the woman of using magical spells to cause car accidents.
Sarah Palin has a years-long relationship with Thomas Muthee. It was Muthee who gave Palin an introductory speech at the Wasilla Assembly of God church when she decided to campaign for Governor of Alaska. Muthee then explained that Sarah Palin should get the votes of the members of her church because she would be part of a divine plan to “infiltrate” the government, “invading” the secular state and taking it over in order to spread the Assembly of God’s religious beliefs in schools and through other public institutions.
Now we get the icing on top of the cake. An archived web page documents that Thomas Muthee, while visiting the Christ Chapel church in Woodbridge, Virginia, also claimed to have the magical power to cure people of HIV infections. “This is the man who has 23 documented cases of people who were healed by the power of God from AIDS!” the site declares.
I’d like to see that documentation. I would really like to see the evidence that Thomas Muthee was able to supernaturally cure 23 people of AIDS. Sadly, I can’t find any information about these so-called “documented cases”.
There’s a real danger in telling people who have HIV infections that they have been magically healed of their disease. The danger is that, thinking that they’re free of the AIDS virus, these people will then infect other people. In Africa, where HIV medications are hard to come by, those people will likely die, and infect yet more people along the way.
When will Sarah Palin repudiate Thomas Muthee?
