Are We Fighting a Holy War?

When you consider that all the prayers cited were given in major presidential addresses, I think Gov. Palin did a darn fine job in a mostly impromptu prayer at her local church. I will never forgive Charles Gibson not only for his condescending arrogance, but also for purposely leaving some good parts of the interview on the cutting room floor. That's despicable; he has permanently sullied his reputation.

Very dishonest of Gibson, suggests that the quotes were assertions or statements of fact by Palin, when they were parts of clauses, the grammar making all the difference in the world -- "pray that there is a plan and that that plan is God's plan" is much different than "that plan is God's plan." Just shameful of Gibson.

Gibson is finished. We're seeing an entire class of people whoring themselves into extinction. It's beginning to play out like a kind of post-modern Grimm's fairy tale

Hello from Fort Smith Arkansas, the current immigrant capital of the nation.

It may be of interest that there are people going around here registering people to vote who are NOT U.S. Citizens. AND, they're telling them to vote for Barak Hussein Obama.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. Don't you have to be a U.S. Citizen to vote?

They're registering both legal "green card" holders and illegals.

I have a friend in Oklahoma who told me they're doing this outside the Tyson factory in Heavener, OK also and reportedly telling them that only Obama will ever let them stay here.

Gator, it is sad to see what the left has done to the political discourse in this country.

Rather than defend her belief that we should ask for God's blessing in our endeavors, that God protect our troops and that we all pray for their safety, she should have called the phrase "holy war" into question.

Not that the resulting conversation would have been better than Palin's response, but c'mon, that's not a phrase anyone in the media would confront Obama with, is it?

It would be interesting to hear Obama's response though, considering he spent twenty years hearing about a "holy war" where God must favor black people or be killed Himself.

Sarah Palin is excellent. May God richly bless her and keep her safe. She is gracious and firm in response to disgusting attacks. I love the way she calls him 'Charlie' and is so polite and respectful to a man who has joined the dark side. Her graciousness contrasts so markedly with his arrogance and the contempt he displays for her. What a great compilation in the video. It is a holy war against the insane Muslim Islamo fascists haters and their many times asserted aim to destroy Western democracies ( I include my threatened country of Australia )Christianity and Israel's very existence, freedom and democracy.
