The gist of this article by the Christian Ethics professor at a supposedly Christian university, is that if Christians believe Sarah Palin can lead the country, she certainly can lead her husband and family, and us conservative fundamentalists have been wounding women by keeping them from fully serving God.
Once again, a phony "conservative Republican Christian" wolf-in-sheep's-clothing is going to do more to destroy the once godly fabric of America than any liberal Democrat could ever have gotten away with. And willingly ignorant Christians are going to help her do it. Neither Obama, Kerry, AlGore, Hillary, or Bill could have gotten away with this without a fierce fight from conservative Republicans and Christians.
I'm warning you NOW, so that when you complain about how bad things are getting in America, and I tell you to look in the mirror to see who to blame, you'll KNOW I was right.
Pro-family my foot.
Questions of faith
Never have conservative evangelicals positioned themselves as staunch advocates for women's leadership in political life until Sarah Palin. The nomination of Palin offers conservative Christian leaders the chance to rethink an archaic theological vision that wounds millions of devout Christian women and restricts the full exercise of their gifts. This is an unexpected gift from presidential candidate John McCain to evangelical Christianity. May Sarah Palin flourish in her new role, and may she open many new doors for evangelical women in America.
