Sarah Palin Tries To Use Her Own Seven Year Old Child Piper As A Political Shield AND IT FAILS!
Posted by Job on October 13, 2008
This is the example of a strong bold principled Christian woman that has the support of not only frauds like James Dobson but more serious people like Al Mohler? It is amazing that conservatives not known for being overtly religious like Charles Krauthammer and Kathleen Parker have recanted their support of Palin while Christian leaders and opinion makers are still backing her.
“The GOP Vice-Presidential nominee said at an earlier fundraiser that she would stop some of the booing from the rowdy Philadelphia fans by putting her seven year old daughter, Piper in a Flyers jersey. She said, “How dare they boo Piper!”” Classic. I wonder if J. Lee Grady still thinks that Palin is a prophetess like Deborah. Oh, great, and she is pro – life, right? So am I, as is every legitimate Christian. But are we seeing here that being pro – life does not necessarily a legitimate Christian make? (Plenty of, er, Muslims are pro – life by the way.) But goodness, apparently being pro – life means having them to exploit them for your own personal ambition?
Incidentally, this Fox News report in claiming that her play might have worked … well their take is controversial. From a comment on their own site: ”
…if you’re going to tell a report a story, report in its entirety and be accurate. Let the readers also know, she was “BOOED,” at this game. Pretell. what the h____ has happened to “fair and balanced reporting? Get the video and allow your readers to hear it!!!!!!
I’m ever so grateful for my parents raising me right!”
But hey, that is Fox News, owned by the world’s biggest pornographer Rupert Murdoch, who calls New Age syncretist Rick Warren his pastor. We should expect them to act like that. For a woman that so many Christians, including serious ones not affiliated with the religious right, are seriously desiring for her to serve as some sort of Christian leader or role model in the secular sphere, we are to expect more. You would think that we would have learned this already from having been burned so many times by George W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, and so many others who used evangelical votes to gain power for themselves and their masters.
Now whether Palin is another George W. Bush – a liar and deceiver from the start – or is merely someone a bit eccentric and confused and is probably being used by McCain and others, I am not in position to say.
Maybe I am being easy on her because she is a woman. (Or maybe it is because I can personally relate to a person who made one of the biggest gaffes of the campaign while going out to get cheesesteaks. Unless it was staged to contribute to an eventual Obama victory, that incident was probably the best example of how completely unready for the national stage Ms. Palin is. But hey, if I was in Philadelphia, I would have gone out for one of their favorite cheesesteaks too. Getting a cheesesteak versus being John McCain’s vice president: NO CONTEST!) But I will definitely say based on her behavior that Christians should stop viewing her or passing her off as “our Christian warrior representative” and start supporting and advocating (or opposing and rejecting) her based on her views and qualifications. Which, if anyone can let me know anything that she actually DID as city councilwoman, mayor, oil and gas commissioner, and governor aren’t quite that bad.
