Gov. Sarah Palin has campaigned on being resistant to earmarks and corruption, but she can now claim to be witch-resistant. A video below has emerged on YouTube that shows Palin participating in a collective blessing from Bishop Thomas Muthee, a regular at her evangelical Wasilla Assembly of God church, who prays for protection from “every form of witchcraft.”
Normally, such a video would be dismissed as dubbed. What makes this a bit more credible is that Muthee is a witchhunter from Kenya.
In fairness to Muthee, he does not guarantee “witch proofing” of candidates. Water-resistant watches are generally guaranteed for up to 100 meters. A witch-resistant blessing is, therefore, likely only guaranteed up to 100 witches.
This could raise the bar for Biden, who may be protected from some forms of witchcraft but certainly not “every form of witchcraft”. Indeed, some forms of witchcraft are viewed as essential to the completion of the annual “balanced” budgets approved by the Senate each year.
Palin has heaped praise on Muthee and cited his blessing of her political career. Obviously, Palin may not have known (and probably did not know) about the witchcraft component of the blessing. Yet, this seems to be the same blessing that she later proudly referenced before the church congregation shortly before being selected as John McCain’s running mate. Moreover, it seems pretty obvious that this minister has some pretty bizarre beliefs and that her church (which she often credits in speeches) has a close association with him. It is very hard to refuse to answer questions about one’s faith when you publicly run on faith issues and use such ceremonies to advance your career, click here.
