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.

Watch money. Money is the barometer of a society's virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favours - when you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you know that your society is doomed...

Destroyers seize gold and leave to its owners a counterfeit pile of paper. This kills all objective standards and delivers men into the arbitrary power of an arbitrary setter of values. Gold was an objective value, an equivalent of wealth produced. Paper is a mortgage on wealth that does not exist, backed by a gun aimed at those who are expected to produce it. Paper is a check drawn by legal looters upon an account which is not theirs: upon the virtue of the victims. Watch for the day when it bounces, marked: "Account overdrawn." ~ Francisco d’Anconia, Atlas Shrugged

“Why does the guerrilla fighter fight? We must come to the inevitable conclusion that the guerrilla fighter is a social reformer, that he takes up arms responding to the angry protest of the people against their oppressors, and that he fights in order to change the social system that keeps all his unarmed brothers in ignominy and misery.”
