“Love thy neighbor? Turn the other cheek? Forgiveness? These New Testament concepts were not part of Sarah Palin’s Old Testament temperament. Both eyes for an eye was the rule, and vanquishing enemies became a goal.”
– Frank Bailey in Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years

“You know, her charisma was moving, there’s absolutely no doubt about that… Blind Allegiance is a tale about somebody – myself – who worshipped someone who did not deserve worship. In my beliefs, you know, worship should belong to God, not a person. And the sad thing is is that she wanted to be worshipped. She wanted people out there to believe she was perfect and not real.”
“I believe our leaders should be strong, honest, and principled, and we detail in “Blind Allegiance” that she is not any of those things with very specific examples, a lot of times her own words. I do not believe she would be a good leader. I do not want to see her lead a party, I do not want to see her lead a country.”

Frank Bailey: Sarah Palin Wanted to be Worshiped Like Jesus
I’ve been pointing out the differences between Sarah Palin’s stated philosophy and belief in Christianity and her actions for quite some time now. I was particularly distressed when Palin used words like “asinine” to describe her own constituents in a press release. These are not the words of a Christian person and certainly not the words of a responsible leader. Of course, the truth of the matter is that she is Domininist, who uses her so-called Christianity as a weapon of power in order to claim the big prize….
The horror some of us feel over Palin isn’t about her politics or faith, as much as she martyrs herself on the pretend cross of her Christian charade. It’s about her character.

Martin Bashir: Vindictive attacks, conspiracy, paranoia, and a single-minded ambition. It’s all part of daily life as a Sarah Palin staffer according to a scathing new tell-all. A former aide portrays Palin as incompetent and ethically compromised during her tenure as Alaska governor and perhaps most pertinently the book casts real doubt on her personal faith and conduct. Frank Bailey is the former staffer behind the book entitled “Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin”.
Martin: Sarah Palin has repeatedly traded as you know on her Christian faith. In your book you write love thy neighbor? Turn the other cheek? Forgiveness? These new testament concepts were not part of Sarah’s old testament temperament. Both eyes for a eye was the rule and vanquishing enemies became a goal. What did you think of her desire for vengeance and that desire to be vindictive?
Frank Bailey: You know, she was obsessive about it. It was difficult because I pushed so hard to help her in that, and I mean a lot of the book is a confession about some of the things I was involved in that I really, truly regret. I have had to go back to folks and apologize to them for some of my actions. Tearing down their character. But she had to put her image up as this perfect person.

Can Sarah Palin be a real, going-to-heaven Christian, part 2? — Encouraging Bristol’s tango on DWTS: “Is it like lap dancing scandalous (giggling, darting out her tongue)? … Just dominate. Just take over.”

Dr. Stanley Monteith on Sarah Palin: “She’s saying all the things we believe; and she well may believe them, but she’s totally under their control. When you take 10, 12 million dollars in nine months from these people why you’ve sold your soul. She will do their bidding.”
Sarah Palin demonstrates why most evangelicals dissed Ron Paul, who wanted to bring the troops home. ‘Christians’ have two sets of books: one for US and one for THEM (“who don’t deserve rights”). THEY’re not our ‘neighbor’ whom Jesus commanded US to love as much as ourselves. Maybe that’s why most evangelicals refuse to investigate 9/11. If THEY didn’t take down the towers…???
