Palin’s Faith Based Cognitive Dissonance

republican_jesus.thumbnail.jpgSarah Palin has been repeatedly linked to the New Apostolic Reformation, a fundamentalist theology whose leader C. Peter Wagner declared:

I declare this to the principalities and powers who have been agents of Satan to obstruct this transfer of wealth: Your time is up! Your evil powers are broken! By the blood of Jesus Christ, I declare that your wicked powers are demolished!…God has declared through His prophets that the wealth of the wicked will be released to the Kingdom of God..I declare that this wealth will be distributed for the extension of the Kingdom of God by the apostles that God has set in the church, I decree that vast amounts of wealth will be released supernaturally, even from godless and pagan sources… The enemy’s camp will be plundered… Resistance will be impossible. Jesus will put all things under His feet.

Yet  she complains about Obama’s "redistribution of wealth" !?!

Before anointing Sarah Palin at the Wasilla Assembly of God Church, New Apostolic Reformation Bishop Thomas Muthee, spoke on the the need for "God’s Kingdom" to "infiltrate" what NAR calls the Seven Mountains–business and finance, schools and education, media and entertainment, politics and government.

Palin rails about  the need to reform government, to change America. And it’s clear how she plans to do it: By using her theocratic ideology.

 Talk2action‘s in depth report on Palin’s faith and its implications for America and the world is a must read for anyone interested in the intersection of faith, politics and culture; for atheists, for agnostics; and for believers (especially because the NAR theology is really wonky as well as terrifying).
