Most Christians that I know, if given a choice, would vote for Sarah Palin over Barrack Obama. Palin embodies the positions of the current conservative right. Obama is the liberal left in presidential form.
After reading some of Palin’s recent remarks in a Fox interview, though, I have to wonder what God thinks about her stands.
However, there are many things that he [Obama] is doing today that cause an uneasiness in many, many Americans, I’m one of those.
Who looks at the way that he is treating the trials of these terrorists and kind of as gosh, they’re on a crime spree right now. No, we are in war. These are acts of these war that these terrorists are committing. We need to treat them a little bit differently than an American who is worthy — an American being worthy of our U.S. constitutional rights. I don’t think the terrorists are worthy of our rights that people like my son fight and are willing to die for.
I won’t argue whether terrorists in America should face military or civilian courts.
What I will argue is that it’s not just Americans who are “worthy” of our U.S. constitutional rights. It’s every man, woman, and child on the planet. God loves them all, and to say that only Americans should be treated decently is the height of hypocrisy. Our Declaration of Independence states that the rights Palin would deny to terrorists are God-given rights, not United States rights given only to Americans.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
