Keith Olberman reports on the peculiar situation where Sarah Palin’s pastor, whom Palin gives partial credit for making her the governer of Alaska (does this qualify as cheating?), was involved in chasing an innocent woman out of her home after accusing her of being a witch. We all know that Alaskans love to hunt mostly anything that moves, but .. witches?? What’s next; will we be throwing misbehavin’ women into ponds to see if they float? Or maybe all muslims will be perceived as witches .. what then? Because Palin has repeatedly demonstrated such a fuzzy line between her religion and her politics, I am very concerned that she will convince McCain to destroy everything this nation holds dear, particularly our right to privacy and our right to intellectual freedom [7:25]
Oh, don’t forget:
Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6: 11-12.
Okay, Palin is the exception to the rule for how this society deals with crazy people: She proves what some people who believe in witches and believe that people can speak intelligibly in
gibberish tongues can get a job as the highest official in at least one state of the union. But I can assure you, based on my own observations, everyone whom I’ve met who falls into this category is safely locked up in the local nuthouse (and not just for a few days, either).
