    OK conservatives, should what Palin's church does be held against her? Should she quit her church like Obama did? Can't have it both ways guys...

    EDIT- typo on her name in my thread title! Sorry! Can some nice mod fix it for me?:eek:

    Lee you should know that's part of the right-wing evangelical platform. They truly believe they can do it.

    I can still ask the question. And I think it's a fair one. Why shouldn't I think that she's a religious nut?

    I pray that places like this would f*ck off. It hasn't worked yet, but I'll keep the faith.

    I'm really hoping someone of Palin's skeletons are questioned either at the VP debate or in a live interview.

    I heard that she has been made 'unavailable' for interview for the next two weeks whilst she takes a crash course in foreign policy and places outside 'meraku. Not that she should have anything to worry about, having lived somewhere that boarders Russia.

    So it'll have to wait!

    Maybe you should start a prayer movement to make more gays. Please do not include me - my wife would never allow it. :D

    You know what? I think it's working. Fanny for me from now on. Thanks Alaska!! :)

    Interesting how this group is another with the acronym WBC? What is it with those initials and gays? Is it some weird code?

    Pray away Teh Ghey!! It's catchy, that you have to admit :p

    Wait until her advisors/supporters take a look at a map and realise that they've been underplaying their hand on her foreign policy experience.

    Same reason why Liberals/Democrats don't think Obama's association with Rev. Wright or his church is a big deal.

    You lose.;)

    Except that Palin has actually passed legislation against gays. I don't see where Obama has passed any legislation to favor his pastor's views.

    Just a minor detail, that.

    Yeah, I lost the bet- but that wasn't a very good answer.

    There's a professor at Wheaton College who helps parents that take their gay children to see him so he can turn them straight. He says "thru Prayer and counseling gays can be cured". Cured - as if being gay is some sort of disease.

    Bible bangers have a vivid imagination.:rolleyes:

    As a Evangelical Christian conservative, the Bible says "go and make disciples", not "go and make heterosexuals". I still believe gays are wrong, but my first agenda isn't close to making them "straight". When Christians focus on issues like this, it makes me upset.

    I don't agree with what I believe they choose to do.
