Sarah Palin's Roots: Religious Extremists

Max Blumenthal presents this report (h/t Andrew Sullivan):

Sullivan comments in a post titled "Break the Back Of The Enemy":

A chilling video from Wasilla by Max Blumenthal that helps explain more deeply how Palin is a product of some of the most extreme forms of Christianism that exist. I also learned a new nugget from local pastor, Howard Bess. He claims that Palin's church took over the board of Mat-Su Medical Center, the hospital that Palin was absolutely determined to have her fifth child in, even though her water had already broken on a trip in Texas.

Ray H.:

I guess Wizbang Blue is now solely dedicated to digging up and publishing as much dirt as possible about Sarah Palin.

Thanks for helping to inform your readers of actual issue and where your candidates stand on those issues.

Since you gave a H/T to Andrew Sullivan, it taints the total report. Ole' Andy is a vile, despicable person, with neither social skills or the ability to string two coherent sentences together. He doesn't "report", he rants, he spews, he vomits.
Using him as a source puts you in the same league as him. (A league of their own?)
By the way, what is "Christianism"? Yes, Lee, I have "Ask.com'ed" it. See the very first link that comes up.

And that comment puts you in the same league with the other trolls who no longer comment here, CKG. Too bad, you were fun to slap around.

by the way, "Christianism" is "the belief that Christianity is superior to all other religions."

"And that comment puts you in the same league with the other trolls who no longer comment here, CKG. Too bad, you were fun to slap around."

I apologize if I misinterpret this message,but one must assume that this means you have just banned CKG. Considering the number of posters here compared to those over at Wizbang my guess would be that on a percentage basis you have a much, much higher rate of banning commenters here than at the parent site. Sad that you have such a thin skin, Lee. If all goes according to your wishes, I fear that we will see a much similar scenario after the January inauguration. I am sure the MSM will continue to paint a very favorable picture of Obama but it will no longer be their choice if you get my drift.

Lee Ward[TypeKey Profile Page]:

No, I don't get your drift, DaveD. Please feel free to expand on what you think will happen after January's inauguration of President Obama.

nikkolai:

"rawmuscleglutes" Sullivan is one vile man. Most normal people have noticed this for some time.

DaveD:

I believe the Obama Era will be even less tolerant of opposing opinions than even you Lee.

Lee Ward[TypeKey Profile Page]:

Opposing opinions?

He doesn't "report", he rants, he spews, he vomits. Using him as a source puts you in the same league as him.

That's not an opposing opinion - it had nothing to do with the post. It's just an insult.

If CKG had debated any point made in the video - even one, I'd have let him say he peace just as I've let him say his peace dozens of times before - when he's opposed me or not - most of the time he's opposed me.

But when they turn into trolls and vomit their bile with not even a mention of the post they're commenting on -- out they go. Pffft! Zero added value - troll be gone!

But I'm sure you're right, Dave D - I'm sure Obama will lock people like you up - be afraid - be very afraid little Dave - the black helicopters will be coming for you...lol!

DaveD:

"it had nothing to do with the post. It's just an insult." And then you turn around and call me "little Dave". But, hey, it's your site...

As far as the video goes, Palin's stand on the issues including abortion can be found here:
http://www.ontheissues.org/sarah_Palin.htm

Her beliefs are quite clear but in my view she has a stance not in lock step with the extremists in whatever evangelical religious background it is felt she has. In fact, as I read down the list of her positions, I find that she is a woman who has reasoned opinions on important issues, but accepts that the majority of Americans may disagree with her on some these. She accepts that one must comply with the will of the people. I am not sure I could ask any more than that from a leader in the representative republic that we have.

Oh, and by the way, I am not afraid. Just a statement of what I will happen. To be honest, I am really not sure how this election is going to go. I live on the East Coast and most of my friends are liberal. Except for my Jewish friends, most don't know who they are going to vote for. In fact the other day, one woman (who is my boss) said she was pretty comfortable supporting Obama early on, but now that he looks like he is going to win she has taken a more serious interest and is not sure what he is about. Just sayin'.
