Guest Host Blogger Jennifer Lorenzo on Sarah Palin and Religion

Isn't Sarah a bit of a hypocrite?  She claims to be a devout Christian yet her 17 years old daughter is  preggers.  Most young daughters of devout parents tend not to stray from their  parents' teachings and prohibitions.

The Alaska state legislature struggled  for some time with legalizing pot.  Finally permitted was the presence in the home of 4 ounces or less of marijuana.  A strong moral person would most likely object to any personal use and possession of a drug that is outlawed in most if not all the other 49 states.  Palin, as a mayor and as a governor, has been silent on this issue.

Where is the respect for animals when someone, such as Palin, takes to hunting and shooting wolves while riding in a plane?

I am not questioning her faith.  I am questioning her using her faith to manipulate approval and political support from the evangelical Christian community

    J Lo: take your gloves off! I've read many of your posts and I know you are much more knowledgeable than you are showing here--and tougher.  Go ahead, question her faith.  Question the faith of evangelicals themselves.  Do they even really pray? Derrida says that it is the atheists now who only truly pray.

    Giving Sarah Palin the benefit of the doubt until  we begin to doubt whatever benefit she may bring.  Sarah's new to the national political scene and we need to know what principles guide her politics.  Sarah seems to have been either angler or bait in a Vice Presidential fishing expedition sponsored by the religious righties.  Rudy Giuliani, despised by the religious righties, mentioned her as a possible VP choice last Fall when his own presidential candidacy was still viable.  John McCain, despised by the religious righties, first mentioned her as a possible VP choice this March after he had gotten enough delegates for the GOP nomination. Johnny Mac said nothing further about her until he announced her selection.  While she has her hooks in the ticket, she pulls McCain to the right and further from the moderates he needs to win in November.

    I'm concerned about the crumbling separation between church and state and the increasing  political role religious groups seek in developing public policy that affects us all, regardless of our personal beliefs.

    "Either angler or bait"--that's interesting.  I always thought she was just bait.
