Some choice words from Sarah Palin, chief theological spokes-person for the Republican ticket:
She expressed support for a Constitutional amendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman. “I wish on a federal level that that’s where we would go because I don’t support gay marriage,” she said.
For those who claim there is no separation of church and state in the Constitution, I guess this is fine. We might as well have amendments stipulating appropriate sexual practices, theologically acceptable rates of interest on loans, and dietary rules to be observed in all public places as well. Maybe, just maybe, the government should back out of defining marriage entirely, even at the state level. We could all be on a level playing field – with civil unions – and then we can get married by whatever priest, rabbi, mullah, brahmin, or witch doctor we select.
Notice, also, how the usual “conservative” stance on states’ rights is dropped in favor of morality to be legislated from the Center when the issue is of such earth-shaking importance.
In the interview she also discussed her personal religious beliefs and said that “faith and God in general has been mocked through this campaign.”
Getting a little grandiose in her complaints here, I think. She has certainly been mocked, but I don’t recall hearing much “God shall be mocked…” stuff at all. Perhaps she thinks she is G-d?
I like the “God in general” part too. Well, at least the mockers aren’t focusing on God-trivia, like his hairdo in the Sistine frescoes, and stuff like that!
She’s a disgrace to our country.
