Sarah Palin’s Demons

The stories coming out about those speaking at Sarah Palin’s churches have killed off any chance that the McCain camp could use Reverend Wright against Obama–especially as Obama has made clear he does not agree with Wright’s political views. In contrast every indication is that Sarah Palin does agree with the views expressed in her churches, and as she refuses to answer questions from the media we are forced to assume this is the case.

The stories just keep getting stranger. The Times of London reports:

The pastor whose prayer Sarah Palin says helped her to become governor of Alaska founded his ministry with a witchhunt against a Kenyan woman who he accused of causing car accidents through demonic spells.

At a speech at the Wasilla Assembly of God on June 8 this year, Mrs Palin described how Thomas Muthee had laid his hands on her when he visited the church as a guest preacher in late 2005, prior to her successful gubernatorial bid.

In video footage of the speech, she is seen saying: “As I was mayor and Pastor Muthee was here and he was praying over me, and you know how he speaks and he’s so bold. And he was praying “Lord make a way, Lord make a way.”

“And I’m thinking, this guy’s really bold, he doesn’t even know what I’m going to do, he doesn’t know what my plans are. And he’s praying not “oh Lord if it be your will may she become governor,” no, he just prayed for it. He said “Lord make a way and let her do this next step. And that’s exactly what happened.”

She then adds: “So, again, very very powerful, coming from this church,” before the presiding pastor comments on the “prophetic power” of the event.

An African evangelist, Pastor Muthee has given guest sermons at the Wasilla Assembly of God on at least 10 occasions in his role as the founder of the Word of Faith Church, also known as the Prayer Cave.

Pastor Muthee founded the Prayer Cave in 1989 in Kiambu, Kenya after “God spoke” to him and his late wife Margaret and called him to the country, according to the church’s website.

The pastor speaks of his offensive against a demonic presence in the town in a trailer for the evangelical video “Transformations”, made by Sentinel Group, a Christian research and information agency.

    There was more on HuffPost about this.  Her churches that she’s belonged to for over 25 years have apparently been “Third Wave” churches; they preach that the end times are on us. They claim that even other fundamentalist Christian churches are in error and their members are not saved. Scary stuff for someone one heartbeat (or cancer cell) away from the button.
    Which reminds me; McCain, I believe, has had second stage melanoma 8 years ago and has probably had several operations. Yet he has never released his medical records for unincombered review. This needs to be addressed.
