It seems that Governor Sarah Palin has some church problems of her own. Remember a few months ago when we couldn’t turn on the evening news without hearing repeated footage of Reverend Wright and his rantings? And while I don’t agree with Rev. Wright’s statements, I think that it is a little odd how there are statements made by Governor Palin in her church that we should be questioning, but the the traditional television news media is not pursuing her words or those of her pastors as aggressively.
Palin has asked one of the churches that she attends to pray for building an Alaskan pipeline and for the military members who are on “a task that is from God.” I’m not so sure about this war being a task from God. Whose God is she talking about anyway? Listen to this clip, and tell me what you think.
And venturing off-topic, isn’t the part about her son’s tattoos a little odd? Her oldest child, Track, is an infantryman, heading off to Iraq, now identified by his “big ole’ Jesus fish” and map of Alaska. I don’t know if I would advertise that to the world if I had a kid preparing to ship off. I know that the Marines recently enacted tighter restrictions on tattoos to create a more “professional demeanor,” and I know that the Army has a similar policy. It just doesn’t seem the wisest of choices for someone going into a zone where you are identified by physical markers and traits, no?
