Oh Good God! Palin called Rick Warren yesterday seeking help in dealing with the "unfair attacks"
Palin Called Rick Warren for Guidance

Pastor Rick Warren got a call from Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) this week seeking help in dealing with the "unfair, unjust attacks" the GOP vice presidential candidate believes she has come under.

On a Los Angeles radio show, co-host Kathryn Milofsky asked Warren what one question he would direct at Palin if he was able to have her sit down for a forum like the one he hosted last month with John McCain and Barack Obama at his Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California.

"Well actually she called me yesterday," Warren said. "The question I asked her was 'how can I pray for you?'"

Warren said that Palin then "asked me to send her some bible verses on how do you deal with the unfair, unjust attacks and the mean-spirited criticism that comes in."

she ALREADY "can't deal" with the "unfair attacks" (most of which, are just completely justified critical research)? Some pit bull.

...held by Billy Graham, the McCain campaign hopes to allay concerns about Palin's religious extremism.

5. Here's some free advice - Never answer to anything so the MSM can speculate and trash you
I mean you have to admit that this woman is not the sharpest spoon in the kitchen. Rumors are going to run like wildfire in the press as long as she remains sequestered.

8. Ha! I'll introduce her to my Priest from Galway, Ireland. He'd
tell her to clean up her act and get out her blessed beads and pray for forgiveness. This would be for her selfishness, self-agrandizement and downright lying in the name of God. Ha, she'd never even make purgatory with this grand old fella....

The priest at my church is from Co. Galway as well! I told him about my experience with the local Assembly of God "minister". He was so very angry about it that he said to me, "If you see him again, tell him that YOUR PRIEST has told YOU to go to hell!". :rofl:

20. That's true...
The original meaning of the word "sorcery" is using 'god's' power for personal gain. Prayer like this is truly "casting" a spell.

Not that I have anything against them but the fundies aren't suppose to mess with that at all but they do all the time and label it 'prayer'.

15. Again, the question that must be asked of McCain/Palin Are They Too Thin Skinned?
This question was posed to Obama in reference to the New Yorker cover depicting him as a Muslim. There has not been a similar portrayal of Palin by a major media magazine, yet the McCain/Palin camp have been reacting with daily outrage to criticisms of McCain/Palin and their record. If Obama was accused of being to thin skinned, then McCain/Palin are absolute eggshells when it comes to holding the most stressful job in the world.

I can imagine her reaction to this suggestion, "Thanks but no thanks."

31. That is Pure Bullshit for more sympathy
and Rick Warren is definitely full of it too for putting that little tid bit out there. Bullshit...my spiritual leader, pastor, or whoever shouldn't tell anyone I called him for help for any reason. Pure BS for the sympathy vote.

Edited on Thu Sep-11-08 12:47 PM by WinkyDink
For example, with revenge, Jesus demands an ideal of turning the other cheek, Matt.5:38-42.
http://www.lectionarystudies.com/forgiveness.html

And this one:
Matthew 19:24
And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
