Do People Learn This in Church?

A letter to the editor in the Bristol Herald-Courier:

It doesn’t matter how much dirt anyone digs up or how much mud they sling at John McCain and Sarah Palin.

Whomever God wants in the White House is who will be there. No one is above God. No one can change God’s plan.

All right, theologians. Have at it.


  1. "Do People Learn this in Church? Yes. Of course they do.

    But I have to wonder, what do they learn in school? On the face of it, the letter seems ignorant, as in totally ignorant of how our form of government works. How are they teaching Civics and American History in high schools? I mean, how far out there do you have to be to think that it's not the processes of the electoral college, but rather some mystic, unknowable event that results in our having a new president. The mindset is right out there with babies coming from underneath cabbage leaves.

    Alas, such are some Palin fans.

  2. Might as well drive down the freeway with your eyes closed. Whatever God's will is, it will be done. Insha Alah.

  3. John, thought you might appreciate this. Here's a rap on Palin and how she supports legislation that massacres the wolves in Alsaska:
