Palin - Snake Handler?

People are always after Obama on religion and what he is and isn’t. How come no one ever talks about Palin being a snake handler. She was a Roman Catholic and renounced that to become a member of the Pentacostal church. They fancy flashing red lights, handling snakes and talking in tounges among other things. If she she makes it to VP, she will be the first Pentacostal to make it anywhere close to the White House. And to think, the Republican mainstream was worried about Romney being a Mormon.

I’ll vote for her if she handles my snake.

Road, not all Pentecostals are snake handlers. In fact, almost NONE of the Pentecostal churches are snake handlers. If you’d bothered to look that up at all, you’d realize that snake handling is a sect exclusively restricted to the Ozark/Appalachia regions. Specifically the very poor rural regions.

Come on man, that’s a retarded soft ball. If you’re going to play ball, at least throw some heat. There’s plenty to find.

Wasn’t she on an altar with a witch doctor at some point ?

I heard she was a one-legged prostitute.

That’s right, it’s only brillant when you label Obama a Muslim, when it’s been proven over and over again that he is a Christian.

I may have been off on the snake handling but they do exist in the deep south, but she is A Pentacostal. But then that doesn’t fit the realm of your closed little mind, although I am glad you learned how to use a dictionary. That is a pleasant suprise…

Didn’t Obama check Muslim on some forms or something? Did Palin check crazy snake handler on hers?

The Pentecostals are nothing like what you describe in your close minded paragraph.

I would also Like to point out, I don’t know what religion Obama is, but I don’t consider it Christian. He accepts gold idols, he claims there are many ways to heaven, and he attended a decidedly non-Christian church the past 20 years (if you read the tenants of the church on their website before they changed them).

Not to mention in a slip of the tongue, he referred to “my Muslim faith”.

Like Alaska?

Anyway, I know plenty of Pentecostals, and plenty of Mormons, several Muslims, and zero snake-handlers. Moreover, I really couldn’t care less about Obama’s religious beliefs or Palin’s. But thanks for the laugh.

You mean other than those are all facts, right. I’m not saying he’s a radical Muslim, just that he doesn’t follow what I know to be the Christian faith.

Yet you take time out of your obviously busy day to make yet another stupid assed remark about people talking about your new baby jesus.

Why not the same incredulity about RW’s horse shit?

More of the double standard.

And you prided yourself in being the objective one.

“…IndyyyyyyyyYY!!”

This is from Wikipedia.

Palin was born into a Catholic family.[188] Later her family joined the Wasilla Assembly of God, which belongs to a Pentecostal association of churches.[189] Palin attended the Wasilla Assembly of God until age 38. When in Juneau, she attends the Juneau Christian Center.[190] Her current home church is the Wasilla Bible Church, an independent congregation.[191] Palin described herself in an interview as a “Bible-believing Christian.”[188] After the Republican National Convention, a spokesperson told CNN that Palin “doesn’t consider herself Pentecostal.”

How about that? Right after the Republican convention, she changes to a “typical” church and renounces her Pentacostal commitment . How politically expedient. Another brilliant flip-flop.

Here she is with the “witch-doctor” at the church. She comes in about 7:50 or so.

That’s horseshit alright…

Shame.

Shame on all those who insist that Obama has had ties to a radical pastor, yet see nothing wrong with Palin.

The link shows a spectacle that everyone with either a functioning brain or just basic integrity would choose to leave from immediately.

Obama worships obama, the rest is just a facade.
