Shocking, Sarah, Shocking


Sarah Palin, Hockey mom.  Lots of experience.  But is this what we stand for as a nation?  The Bible (which Palin believes is inerrant) tells us over and over again that kindness to animals is a commandment.  “do not yoke together an ox and an ass,” it says for the hardship to the ass would be too great.  “If you see your enemy’s animal stuck in the mud, it is your responsibility to stop what you are doing, free the animal and return it to your enemy.  Even when one needs to take eggs from a nest, we are commanded to do it when the mother bird is there.  So Sarah’s professed religious beliefs are, what, selective?  Only with regard to her own hard right Christian agenda? I am outraged.  You?
