Media Derides Palin As ‘Once Blessed To Be Free From Witchcraft’

September 25, 2008

The Associated Press probably thought that this was the scoop of the century: an African bishop from Kenya once visited Sarah Palin’s church and prayed that she would be protected from witchcraft and from Satan, and that God would use her to turn the United States around:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – A grainy YouTube video surfaced Wednesday showing Sarah Palin being blessed in her hometown church three years ago by a Kenyan pastor who prayed for protection from “witchcraft” as she prepared to seek higher office.

The video shows Palin standing before Bishop Thomas Muthee in the pulpit of the Wasilla Assembly of God church, holding her hands open as he asked Jesus Christ to keep her safe from “every form of witchcraft.”

“Come on, talk to God about this woman. We declare, save her from Satan,” Muthee said as two attendants placed their hands on Palin’s shoulders. “Make her way my God. Bring finances her way even for the campaign in the name of Jesus. … Use her to turn this nation the other way around.”

Palin – who stopped attending the church in 2002 – kept her head bowed throughout the blessing, and did not say anything.

You need to understand the perspective from which this is coming: a liberal, profoundly anti-religious secular humanist worldview, which wants you to think that there is something wrong and even scary about Sarah Palin, because she’s a Christian who believes in God and even believes that there is a Satan.  What kind of country would give power to a dangerous person like this?  We have to warn you about her!  Do you know what she believes?  How can you trust someone like her?

This Kenyan bishop knows more about the reality of evil and human suffering than all of these sneering liberal journalists put together.  He knows there is a Satan, because he has seen his evil firsthand.  And this African spiritual leader prays in the spirit of one who has confronted monsterous evil in his own land.

We frankly don’t know what Sarah Palin believes in common with this Kenyan bishop; she may have been displaying true religious tolerance by allowing a Christian from another culture – and yes, another race – to pray as he saw fit.  But liberals won’t be having any of that while they’re on the job!

I am sick to death of liberals who claim to be so “tolerant”, but who are in reality so completely and fundamentally intolerant of anyone who so much as even thinks differently than them.  Please keep in mind that “re-education camps” come from the political left, and that the more officially “atheist” a nation is, the more likely they have been to have large numbers of their populations being “re-educated” against their wills.
