Palin – Church and State Issues as GovernorOctober 11, 2008
Well, well, well. The Governor of Abuse of Power Alaska, Sarah Palin, has been blurring the line between Church and State. Not only has she publicly claimed to do god’s work from the Governors office (how does she know what god’s will would be?), but she has been taking taxpayer’s money to take religious trips. According to the AP, $13,000 in her 20 months in office, or $650 each month.
Since she took state office in late 2006, the governor and her family have spent more than $13,000 in taxpayer funds to attend at least 10 religious events and meetings with Christian pastors, including Franklin Graham, the son of evangelical preacher Billy Graham, records show.
Now, I’ve already broken down her gifts by month, week, and day in a previous post, which amounted to $1,200 a month. Add these religious ventures in and that’s $22,200 a year. That’s not even including the money she charged the taxpayers to sleep in her own bed, $17,000, add that, and it’s $39,200. Now, wouldn’t it be more christian, and more mavericky to use that money for some good, instead of her own personal use, like, say…feeding 10,000 people for a day, or 1,000 people for 10 days, or 100 needy people for 100 days, or 10 staving people for 3 whole years?
But that’s not the kind of christian, or the kind of maverick she is. The kind she is doesn’t do things to help others, only herself. The kind she is abuses power, and steals money from the taxpayers for her own benefit. The kind she is imposes theocratic law, rather than fights it. She is pathetic, a complete package of hypocrisy and hate.
Palin–abuse of power, abuse of morality, abuse of ethics. Scary, ain’t it?
