Bloggers are finally starting to exit the Palin family bedrooms, only to enter her church. The same people who were outraged that conservatives would complain about the things Senator Obama's pastor said are now screaming about something a guest speaker at Governor Palin's church said. Others are dissecting her faith, saying it's important to know because it will affect how she would carry out her duties.
But we already know how she would carry out her duties. From Time Magazine : "When a parental-consent law was struck down by Alaska's highest court in 2007, Palin called the decision "outrageous" but refused demands from conservatives to introduce antiabortion legislation in a session that was supposed to be about a natural gas pipeline. "In all the years I've known Sarah and her parents, we never talked about right to life or any of that," says St. George. "She doesn't let those issues get in the way of getting things done for the community."" From eQualityGiving.org - hardly an evangelical fan- "She opposes marriage equality. She supported the Alaska marriage constitutional amendment in 1998. As Governor, she vetoed legislation that would have denied same-sex partners of state employees health and retirement benefits. She vetoed the legislation because the Alaska Supreme Court had ruled that such a denial of benefits was unconstitutional." In other words, she draws a sharp line between what Sarah Palin, citizen and voter, supports, and the duty of Governor Palin to uphold the law of the land. Just like JFK and every Roman Catholic since. Just like every elected official swears to do.
Ok. I get it. You're upset that Senator McCain picked Ted Nugent's sister as a running mate. But the best way to insure that she stays in Alaska is to start talking about real issues.
