Palin used state funds to ask people to EVANGELIZE!

As reported in the Anchorage Daily News, Sarah Palin used state money to fund a trip to deliver an address at a Christian school, in which she read quotes from the bible and asked those in attendance to pray for a pipeline.

Gov. Sarah Palin used state funds in June when she traveled from Juneau to Wasilla to speak to graduating evangelical students and urge them to fan out through Alaska "to make sure God's will be done here."
Palin charged the state of Alaska for meals "and other expenses," for a trip to her home town, to the tune of $120. Air travel amounted to $519.50. She also attended a christian church conference during the trip.

But what's most troubling is that part of Palin's speech was to ask the crowd to spread the Christian faith!

"What I need to do is strike a deal with you guys as you go out throughout Alaska -- I can do my part in doing things like working really, really hard to get a natural gas pipeline." Palin said. "Pray about that also. I think God's will has to be done, in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that. But I can do my job there, in developing our natural resources, and doing things like getting the roads paved, making sure our troopers have their cop cars and their uniforms and their guns, and making sure our public schools are funded.

"But really, all of that stuff doesn't do any good if the people of Alaska's hearts isn't right with God. And that's going to be your job," [Palin] said.

I thought Palin is supposed to be some sort of reformer? These are not the the actions of someone wishing to stop government corruption! This IS government corruption!

Even though the Wasilla Assembly of God (where Palin was baptized at age 12) took all their videos off-line, youtube has it! The worst part occurs between 1:25 and 1:47 in this clip.

Oops my own narcissism had me posting without previewing.

It should read "how does she know? that God would give a crap"

Notice how the mainstream media hasn't picked this up yet? It was published on SUNDAY, SEPT 8. So much for the alleged "librul" media conspiracy...

I seriously think I'm going to puke. Down with Palin!

Thanks for commenting, Allie! I had a similar reaction.

Sadly, I talked with a friend of mine who is an attorney, and his response was, "it OUGHT to be illegal," (implying maybe it technically isn't). Ugh.
