Juliet Ellperin, writing at the WaPo, describes a "free-form commencement address she [Palin] gave in June to a class of commission students at the Wasilla Assembly of God. ... Palin exhorted congregants to pray so she could realize her public policy goals."
The Huffington Post has a video of the speech here.
And here's part of what she said:
"'I can do my part in doing things like working really, really hard to get a natural gas pipeline, a $30 billion dollar project that's going to create a lot of jobs for people in Alaska, and we're going to have a lot of energy flowing through here -- and pray about that also -- I think God's will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that,' she told them, 'but I can do my job there, in developing our natural resources and doing things like getting the roads paved, and making sure our troopers have their cop cars and their uniforms, their guns, and making sure out public schools are funded. But really, all that stuff doesn't do any good if the people of Alaska's heart isn't right with God.'
"Switching to the war in Iraq, Palin told the group of students that they should not only pray for men and women in the military but to make sure the leaders of this country are sending U.S. soldiers 'out on a task that is from God. That's what we have to make sure that we're praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God's plan.'"
She ended up like this: "I love you guys, and thank you so much for dedicating your lives to Jesus Christ."
Isn't it nice to think that we might have another freak in the White House who thinks that what's really important is to have your heart right with God? Isn't it nice that this person believes her plans are God's plans? Isn't it nice that she wants a war plan from God?
Is she the governor of Alaska or the Christian pastor of Alaska?
