"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Gov. Palin Speaks at Her Old Church

I commend for your viewing this 9 minute long clip of remarks Gov. Sarah Palin recently made at her old church in Wasilla, Alaska. They may be found here. This is clearly not your typical "politician drops by a church to encourage civic participation" talk. She sounds very much like one who truly believes what she is saying, and she doesn't soft pedal her remarks for fear of putting off non-believers. (Among other things, she asks the congregants to pray that God's will be done in our military planning for Iraq and in policy decisions in the state of Alaska.)

Did her talk sound anything like that Roman priests sermon at Rev. Wright's church?

Not a bit, sir. She never got into partisan politics at all (unlike the priest in question, who attacked individual leaders and a particular political viewpoint). Gov. Palin simply asked the congregation for prayer that God's will be done on matters before our government. Surely any Chirstian can do the same. I am amazed that some people on the Left seem to have a problem with this. They are so wedded to a secular state that they don't even want us to pray that we are doing what God wants us to do?! It boggles the mind.
