    Per Fox News:

    PASTOR BLESSED PALIN TO PROTECT HER FROM WITCHCRAFT

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A grainy YouTube video surfaced Wednesday showing Sarah Palin being blessed in her hometown church three years ago by a Kenyan pastor who prayed for her protection from “witchcraft” as she prepared to seek higher office.

    The video shows Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, standing before Bishop Thomas Muthee in the pulpit of the Wasilla Assembly of God church, holding her hands open as he asked Jesus Christ to keep her safe from “every form of witchcraft.”

    “Come on, talk to God about this woman. We declare, save her from Satan,” Muthee said as two attendants placed their hands on Palin’s shoulders. “Make her way my God. Bring finances her way even for the campaign in the name of Jesus. … Use her to turn this nation the other way around.”

    Click here to see video of Plain being blessed by Kenyan pastor.

    Palin filed campaign papers a few months later, in October 2005, and was elected governor the next year.

    Palin does not say anything on the video and keeps her head bowed throughout the blessing. She was baptized at the church but stopped attending regularly in 2002.

    A spokesman for the McCain campaign declined to comment. A person who answered the phone at the Wasilla church confirmed the video was from May 2005 but declined further comment.

    Palin was baptized Roman Catholic as a newborn.

    Pentecostals are conservative in their reading of the Bible. Unlike most other Christians — including most evangelicals — Pentecostals believe in “baptism in the Holy Spirit.” That can manifest itself through speaking in tongues, modern-day prophesy and faith healing, which includes the laying on of hands.

    Maria Comella, a spokeswoman for the McCain-Palin campaign, has said Palin attends different churches and does not consider herself Pentecostal.

    On a visit to the church in June 2008, Palin spoke fondly of the Kenyan pastor and told a group of young missionaries that Muthee’s prayers had helped her to become governor.

    “Pastor Muthee was here and he was praying over me, and you know how he speaks and he’s so bold,” she said. “And he was praying ‘Lord make a way, Lord make a way’ … He said, ‘Lord make a way and let her do this next step.’ And that’s exactly what happened.”

    The Rev. Zipporah Ndiritu, who studied under Muthee in the Kiambu, Kenya-based Word of Faith Church, said the bishop is revered among evangelicals there. In a phone interview from Mombasa, Kenya, she said church doctrine focuses on ridding the world of demons — and witches.

    “Even in the days of Jesus Christ, according to the Bible there were witches who were manifesting through demonic forces,” she said. “You can seek from the Lord, and if you find demonic forces you cast them out.”

    Ndiritu said she did not know Palin.

    What a nutcase.

    I guess Righties are happy they made pastors such an issue...

    If you're going to be a Christian, you need to believe not only in God and His Angels, but in demonic forces as well.

    It would be interesting to poll Americans and see how many believe in witches and demons. My guess is not too many.

    I would agree. It would only be Christians who have a good understanding of the Bible and actually believe what it says.

    It's been quite a few years since demonic possession was the accepted theory for mental illness and criminality.

    This woman is very odd indeed. Very odd.

    Point is, some Kenyans do. If Palin received a blessing and he included witchcraft in it, what's she supposed to do? Jump up and say "Oh, HELL NO"?

    Not very polite thing to do to a visiting pastor.

    This is just more BS from the let's try to make something out of nothing smear machine.

    It would be nice if she was asked to address all these wacko church things, the way Obama had to.

    Does she think you can pray away the gay? Does she think a vote for a democrat equals damnation? Does she think Alaska is a refuge for the end times, and that they are almost upon us? Does she believe in witches? We have no frikkin idea!
