America -- Are You Ready To Fall On Your Knees if Sarah Palin Becomes the GOP Nominee?

By Kathleen

Look around you Americans. There are a significant number of people, Sarah Palin amongst them, who believe that America is declining into collapse -- both spiritually and economically. They see grave, national dangers around every corner, that America has become a fallen nation which God is punishing and that their children are in danger of inheriting a ruined America.

Such people do not believe that Christianity is merely a religion. They believe that it is a reality and they want to make it your reality too. They want to put God into Government thereby ruling the country by God's biblical law not man made ones. They would put God into your schools where students and teachers will be forced to pray and into business where employees will be encouraged to vote as "advised" by their employer and not by his own free will. "True believers" want more God in their lives and in your life too. Less Government and more God.

To do so they need a person in charge who professes to put God first -- that everything else comes through and after Him.

Sarah Palin believes in her heart that she is that person -- that God has opened doors for her and that she is merely following his call and that it would be a sin for her not to do so. Recently, during her tour Palin had the opportunity to speak over two dozen times with members of the media -- mostly local news reporters -- on what she claims were matters of "policy, politics, history and everything in between."

In her latest post at SarahPac Palin further writes:

More importantly, I got to talk with countless everyday Americans who want to get our country back on the right track. It's been an honor to meet so many fellow patriots who care deeply about this country, who want a brighter future for all of us, and who recognise the undeviating line that connects our history to our future.

I believe that Palin is alluding to the fact that she and others believe that the hand of God is the missing factor in Government and that in order to "get our country back on the right track" it is necessary to follow the "undeviating line that connects our history to our future." That obedience to the laws of God will save the USA. She alludes to this meaning via the use of code words because she wishes to keep her true agenda hidden.

Graphic created by the Palin cult

Of course, the discussion about God's place in USA politics already took place more than two hundred years ago. Many of the founding fathers, that Palin loves to mention, agreed that God did not have a central role to play in politics. George Washington, a man widely recognised for his upstanding moral character, a war hero and the first American President believed that other religions should be tolerated. In 1790 he said:

For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.

Every man living in or out of a state of civil society, has a right peaceably and quietly to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience.

The father of the Constitution, James Madison, believed that if religion dictated American Law that America would become a continent soaked in blood, much like Europe had been during the Crusades and other Holy Wars. Madison had much to say against the mixing of church and state including the following which he wrote in a letter to Edward Livingston, July 10th, 1822:

Nothwithstanding the general progress made within the two last centuries in favour of this branch of liberty, & the full establishment of it, in some parts of our Country, there remains in others a strong bias towards the old error, that without some sort of alliance or coalition between Gov' & Religion neither can be duly supported: Such indeed is the tendency to such a coalition, and such its corrupting influence on both the parties, that the danger cannot be too carefully guarded agst.. And in a Gov' of opinion, like ours, the only effectual guard must be found in the soundness and stability of the general opinion on the subject. Every new & successful example therefore of a perfect separation between ecclesiastical and civil matters, is of importance. And I have no doubt that every new example, will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Gov will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.

He also said:

Freedom arises from the multiplicity of sects, which prevades America and which is the best and only security for religious liberty in any society. For where there is such a variety of sects, there cannot be a majority of any one sect to oppress and persecute the rest.

Significantly, the founding fathers worked together to form the constitution, even if they had disagreements, they were united in their purpose which was an independent America. These days there are many people, supposedly of faith, whose message is divisive, that if you are not with them, then you cannot be a true believer. That if you do not vote for a particular candidate then you are committing sin. In such circles Republicans are regarded as god-fearing and upstanding people and Democrats as immoral because they support taxing the people and allow abortion. They believe that gay people, people who undertake and perform abortions, athiests, feminists and indeed anyone who supports the secularisation of America are to blame for all the natural and terrorist disasters that America presently has either undergone or faces in the future.

These are the people who want to take you back to the 18th century and rewrite the Constitution (and history) according to their precept that God in Government is a good thing. Right wing politicians such as Sarah Palin and notable christian conservative leaders such as James Dobson are more than happy to use faith to divide Americans rather than to unite them. Barack Obama in June 2007 noted that such leaders "by telling evangelical christians that Democrats disrespect their values and dislike their church whilst suggesting to the rest of the country that religious Americans only care about issues such as abortions and gay marriage" were hijacking faith and using it as a wedge to divide American people.

Moreover, issues such as abortion and gay marriage are the main concerns as far as christian conservative leaders are concerned and as the Republican party agrees with them on these issues the leaders and the christians who follow them unthinkingly adopt every position of the Republican party as their own. No matter how much it may hurt them in the end. After all, according to them, Jesus would vote Republican, wouldn't he?

Many people ask why Patrick and I are so concerned about Sarah Palin. They think that it is odd that we as Europeans put so much energy and time into exposing her. The answer is simple. America is a powerful country whose influence reaches directly into the nooks and crannies of Europe's own governments. Sarah Palin has a belief set that we believe is fundamentally dangerous not only to America but to the rest of the world. Unfortunately, and I think few will argue the fact, the Republican party especially has little problem in embracing as leader a person who is clueless of policy. Palin has the added allure of being deeply steeped in the religious supernatural via her claim of having been called by God to seek political office. The possibility exists, despite the polls against her, that Sarah Palin could be chosen as the future leader of the GOP. She may even run as a third party candidate. One thing we are certain of, Sarah Palin would run on a platform of hate and division the repercussions of which may effect not only the USA but a substantial part of the world. Our world. That for us is a good a reason as any to continue exposing her.
