Should Palin Renounce Her Pastors?

The newest attacks on Sarah Palin have to do with statements made by her Pastors. Harper's has been pouring over the sermons made by David Pepper of the the Church on the Rock in Palin’s hometown of Wasilla, and Mike Rose of the Juneau Christian Center, who has been her pastor since she became governor in 2006. Here are some of the statements which the Libs are having some problems with.

From David Pepper, senior pastor at Church on the Rock:

From an November 25, 2007 sermon: “The purpose for the United States is… to glorify God. This nation is a Christian nation.”

From an October 28, 2007 sermon: “God will not be mocked. I don’t care what the ACLU says. God will not be mocked. I don’t care what atheists say. God will not be mocked. I don’t care what’s going on in the nation today with so much horrific rebellion and sin and things that take place. God will not be mocked. Judgment Day is coming. Where do you stand?”

From an October 28, 2007 sermon: “Just giving in a little bit is a disastrous thing…You can’t serve both man and God. It is one or the other.”

And from Mike Rose, senior pastor at Juneau Christian Center:

From an April 27, 2008 sermon: “If you really want to know where you came from and happen to believe the word of God that you are not a descendant of a chimpanzee, this is what the word of God says. I believe this version.”

From a July 8, 2007 sermon: “Those that die without Christ have a horrible, horrible surprise.”

From a July 28, 2007 sermon: “Do you believe we’re in the last days? After listening to Newt Gingrich and the prime minister of Israel and a number of others at our gathering, I became convinced, and I have been convinced for some time. We are living in the last days. These are incredible times to live in.”

Some of the left wing bloggers have jumped on the Harpers article and believe that Sarah Palin should have to denounce these statements of her Pastors just as Obama had to denounce the controversial statements of Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. In the interest of fairness, let us re-examine the statements of Jeremiah Wright which I obtained from Fox News.

– September 2001: “The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color. The government lied.”

– September 2001: “We bombed Hiroshima. We bombed Nagasaki. And we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon and we never batted an eye.”

– September 2001: “We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because of stuff we have done overseas is now brought back into our own backyard. America is chickens coming home to roost.”

– April 2003: “The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes three-strike laws and wants them to sing God Bless America. No! No No! God damn America … for killing innocent people. God damn America for threatening citizens as less than humans. God damn America as long as she tries to act like she is God and supreme.”

– December 2007: “Barack knows what it means living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich, white people. Hillary would never know that.”

– December 2007: “Hillary ain’t never been called a nigger. Hillary has never had a people defined as a non-person.”

– Jan. 13, 2008: “Hillary is married to Bill, and Bill has been good to us. No he ain’t! Bill did us, just like he did Monica Lewinsky. He was riding dirty.”

– “Fact number one: We’ve got more black men in prison than there are in college. … Fact number two: Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run.”

– “We are deeply involved in the importing of drugs, the exporting of guns and the training of professional killers. … We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God. … We conducted radiation experiments on our own people. … We care nothing about human life if the ends justify the means.And … And … And! God! Has got! To be sick! Of this shit!”

The left cannot be serious! Do they really think that there is any kind of realistic comparison that can and should be made with respect to the content of the sermons of Palin's Pastors and those of Obama's? Liberals seem to have 'plug and play' brains. One of them makes an 'off the wall' suggestion and they all just fall in line and follow along. It's as if they have no will of their own. It kinda of reminds me of the following Bob Hope movie line.

WAIT....stop the presses! A Christian pastor going exactly by what his Scripture informs him should be criticized for it!! BUT, a Black pastor screeching GOD D*&^ America and practically saying HATE WHITEY deserves protection?

OH, I GET IT!! (GREAT post, ..just GREAT.thanks...fantastic point)
