Breaking News: Sarah Palin Apparently Watched Video of Muthee Witch Hunt Before Taking Stage To Pray With Muthee For the Demolition of the Separation of Church and State

Yes, I know it’s a long headline. That’s because it’s news that makes a connection between three events.

1. First, the new revelation: the Associated Press reports today that Sarah Palin seems to have written in a 2000 letter about watching a video of Thomas Muthee. In the video, Thomas Muthee brags about running a woman out of his town, a woman he decided was a witch because there were some car accidents near her house. Police fired shots at her, police arrested her, all at the behest of mobs of Muthee followers who also threatened to stone her to death. Sarah Palin — who wants you to put her heartbeat away from the presidency — crows with pride about this in her letter:

“What a blessing that the Lord has already put into place the Christian leaders, even though I know it’s all through the grace of God,” she wrote in March 2000 to her former pastor. She thanked him for the loan of a video featuring a Kenyan preacher who later would pray for her protection from witchcraft as she sought higher office.

2. Second, having been made aware of what Thomas Muthee was and what he had done, Sarah Palin chose to attend the Wasilla Assemblies of God on October 11, 2005 to see Thomas Muthee preach about her and the special part she had to play in God’s plan. Read the transcript, or see the video of Muthee’s sermon for yourself:

In that sermon, a sermon in which Thomas Muthee appears to have violated tax laws by telling congregants to vote for Sarah Palin, Muthee makes the following case for the election of Sarah Palin:

A. God needs fundamentalist Christian believers to “infiltrate” and “invade” government;

B. After successful infiltration and invasion of government, fundamentalist Christians should use their positions to put Christian teachings in public schools to counter the social influence of Buddhists, Muslims and Wiccans;

C. Fundamentalist Christians who have infiltrated and invaded government should more broadly use their positions to enact and enforce Christian dominance over business and law;

D. And that’s why the election of Sarah Palin to office is so important.

3. Third, knowing that:

— Thomas Muthee’s mobs had threatened to stone a woman to death, had put local police up to invading this woman’s home and firing shots, had her arrested, and then had her run out of town because there were car accidents near her house;

— Thomas Muthee had violated tax law by endorsing her candidacy from the altar;

— Thomas Muthee had just endorsed her as the perfect opportunity for fundamentalist Christians to “invade” and “infiltrate” government in order to implement Christian theocracy in the areas of education, business and law…

Knowing all this, Sarah Palin chose to take the stage, have Thomas Muthee lay hands on him, and pray with him for his vision to come to pass.

This isn’t a mere matter of “guilt by association.” This is about the active choice of Sarah Palin to come up on stage and pray for the radical and violent theocratic agenda of Thomas Muthee to come to fruition through her.

This is, in short, not simply a matter of “character,” but of a policy agenda that stands in direct opposition to the Constitution of the United States of America.

America needs someone in the media ask Sarah Palin this question, point blank:

“Why, Governor Palin, did you take to the stage of the Wasilla Assemblies of God in October 2005 to pray with Thomas Muthee for your election to office when Muthee had just named your election as the lynchpin of a plan for the Christian ‘invasion’ and ‘infiltration’ of American government?”

I hope someone in the media is paying attention.

    Wow! Suspicion confirmed. Thanks, AP.

  • There’s a lot more about Palin in that AP article – more on that tomorrow morning.

  • Elle

    Palin is in it for Palin. Yes she is wrapping it all in the color of her faith, but it comes down to Palin is the worst sort of power hungry greedy bastard that strives to come to control over their fellow citizens and rule them for her own gain and aggrandizzment.

    At least Hillary was honest about it.

  • WCW

    The AP article says Palin’s correspondence shows she thanked someone for the loan of the video about Muthee, but doesn’t explicitly say that Palin mentions watching it. Right, or did I miss something?

    Of course it’s possible/probable she did watch it, and so did know all about Muthee and his wacky background before getting onstage to participate in a witchcraft-protection ritual blessing. But unfortunately it isn’t proof that she did.

    Since the article cites “Records of her mayoral correspondence”, maybe you could get a copy yourself and find out if she said someone like “The video is really great”, thereby proving she watched it.

  • Jim

    The portion of the letter quoted shows her discussing the article, which is an indication that she’s watched it.

  • WCW

    Sorry, Jim, you lost me — did you mean to write “video” in place of “article” in that reply?

    The portion of the letter mentions her thanking someone for the video, not discussing its contents. Right? Unless you mean the initial quote in the paragraph and its mention of “Christian leaders”. Yes, she could be referring to Muthee, but still, not necessarily.

    from the article: “‘What a blessing that the Lord has already put into place the Christian leaders, even though I know it’s all through the grace of God,’ she wrote in March 2000 to her former pastor. She thanked him for the loan of a video featuring a Kenyan preacher who later would pray for her protection from witchcraft as she sought higher office.”

    Considering that Sarah Palin hasn’t said anything about Thomas Muthee, I’m operating under the assumption that she doesn’t mind people drawing conclusions based on the facts.

    xDxEx

  • Jim

    Yeah. I did mean to say “video,” and she’s discussing him as a “Christian leader,” which I take as a pretty good indication. That’ll teach me to make a comment when I need a nap.

  • DARK ENERGY

    Mama Jane has been found. Apparently, she is alive and well and still living in Kiambu.

    xDxEx

  • WCW

    Well, one last time, if you read the paragraph in the article carefully, they could be two separate parts of the letter. Or they could be talking about the same thing, we just aren’t sure yet.

    Again, I would suppose that the correspondence is public, so someone should get the letter and check out the whole thing and clear it up.

    (I am working to get the facts out on Palin and her disastrous nomination as VP candidate. But I make sure I don’t put anything out that isn’t 100% solid.)

  • Jim

    I have been thinking about it since you first wrote about it, and you’re right, so I’ll change the language in the post.

  • Jim

    Dark Energy, do you have a source on that?

  • DARK ENERGY

    Jim,

    I tried posting a link to the article but posts with links are not appearing for some reason. Google “Mama Jane Njenga” in Google News and the article should come up. The article appears in Women’s E-News.

    xDxEx

  • Jim

    Yep, I just found it myself. Original source: http://www.womensenews.org/article.cfm/dyn/aid/3773/context/archive.

    If you post a comment with too many links in it, the spam filters may mistake it for a Nigerian credit card offer robocomment.

  • DARK ENERGY

    “If you post a comment with too many links in it, the spam filters may mistake it for a Nigerian credit card offer robocomment.”

    Well, that’s weird because I posted only the one link. I blame witchcraft.

    xDxEx

  • Elle

    Right, I put a hex on the site so that you couldn’t put the link in. ;-0

    I mean we can’t have you going around discrediting Muthee the great witch hunter, now can we?

  • Facts

    I can not find the AP story on a link that is still up. A handful of Wikipedia editors will not allow the information to be on Wikipedia since this CBS News story, http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/10/11/politics/main4515419.shtml?source=mostpop_story , does not specify the contents of the video. Does anyone know where the AP story can be found?
