When speaking at an Ohio Right to Life fund raising event, last month, Sarah Palin said that when she was criticized for having several things written on her hand, at the Tea Party convention, she didn’t have a good excuse. Now she has an excuse: God wrote on his hand, too.
Palin said that a supporter sent her a quote from The Bible, Isaiah 49:16, which says, “See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me,” and she went on to say, “In that passage He says, I wrote your name on the palm of my hand to remember you. And I’m like okay, I’m in good company.”
Some say that Palin has compared herself to God; others are attempting to excuse her remark. There is a larger issue.
What’s important to realize is that same God, the God of the Bible’s Old Testament, also became angry and destroyed things: the earth, with a flood; cities with fire and brimstone. It doesn’t matter whether you believe so; Sarah Palin believes so.
So, would it be alright for Sarah Palin to destroy things just as God did? She’d be “in good company,” so it would be “okay,” right?
We must remember that we live in the nuclear age and that a U.S. President has the capacity to destroy cities, even cause the earth to become uninhabitable.
Ugh. Sarah Palin is unfit for any office that would give her any authority over any weapon.
