Palin, God and Iraq: Liberals Are Lying
Liberals, of course, never seem to mind when religious types say that God is on their side. They never raised an objection, for example, when a bunch of leftist clerics started an anti-SUV campaign, asking “What Would Jesus Drive.”
In 1964, all the Mainstream Protestant organizations came out in favor of the Civil Rights Act. They took the position that God hates racial prejudice.
Then why should we object to saying that God hates terrorists? That’s just as plausible.
But in fact, Palin never said that the Iraq War is a “task from God.”
She said to pray that it is a task from God.
Here is the quote (go to approximately the 3:35 point):
Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right also for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending them out on a task that is from God.And further:
That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God’s plan.Linguistically, this isn’t difficult. She is telling people to “pray . . . that our leaders . . . are sending them out on a task from God.”
Both the Mainstream Media and the elites in the Democratic Party are highly secular, so we might suppose that they don’t know what a prayer request sounds like.
But can’t they read English?
In fact, what we have is secular cultural elites who hate Palin, don’t like Christians, and don’t especially care whether what they say about either is true.
