Sarah Palin appeared on the Glenn Beck show on Fox News yesterday. They discussed the truth that the founding fathers bowed their knees and their heads to God and asked for guidance as they crafted the documents that the United States is governed by still today. Palin who should be nicknamed “Plain-spoken-Palin” tells how the last year and a half has driven her to her knees to seek guidance from God.
This is a key statement in defining the support that Palin garnishes. The misconception is that leaders like Palin want to make Christianity a requirement. The statement would be much more fairly stated as “Our government has room for leaders who gain their ideals and principle from Christianity.” The Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights, did not declare Christianity as a national religion, but most of the authors of the documents sought the direction of God to author the decrees.
If Palin had no support, she would not be the subject of daily talking points. However, Palin has been inappropriately labeled as a populist. The real question is why are people supporting her? It is not Palin, it is the voice of the supporters and they have a resounding message. Is anyone asking the supporters why they want to support her? It seems like the greatest way to silent the supporters is to discredit Palin.
Our government has room for leaders who seek God’s face as they govern. Palin says in her interview with Beck that she is not going to tell anyone that they must follow God, however, it is the choice that she makes.
