Sarah Palin: In God We Trust and Sign Into Law
Alaska’s ex-governor suggests America should make laws based on the Bible and the Ten Commandments. Seriously.
We’re sorry, is it 1776? It isn’t? Oh, well we got a little confused while watching Sarah Palin on Bill O’Reilly talk about how America should “go back” and create laws based on the Bible and the Ten Commandments.
In response to a backlash against the National Day of Prayer, Palin told O’Reilly, “Go back to what our founders and our founding documents meant – they’re quite clear – that we would create law based on the God of the Bible and the Ten Commandments.”
She also claimed that people who are against the National Day of Prayer are trying to “transform America” and shift the country away from its Christian foundation.
You could see how we got so confused – this is 2010, and yet, we’ve got a lady in the public eye trying to set our entire country back 230 years. Is Palin not familiar with the separation of church and state? Or does she not realize that America is significantly more diverse than it was when our Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution?
Mrs. Palin, if we’re such a “Christian nation,” then we suggest you take a look at the 2007 U.S. Religious Landscape Survey, so that you can better understand the massive country of diversified people you are speaking about. And then we suggest you fully think through what you’re saying before you go on national television and suggest we make ideas like “Thou shall not commit adultery” into law (Tiger Woods would be in so much trouble!).
Watching this video again would make us throw things at our computer, but we’ve posted it here for you so that you can hear Palin’s thoughts from her own mouth. Oh, and if you think Bill O’Reilly has such a level head, we suggest you watch this little gem. (Huffington Post)
