    And this is what she actually said.

    Mrs Palin said: "No one person has all the right answers. It takes a united nation, and it does take godly counsel, and it takes prayer and answers to prayer - and a collective humble heart of a nation seeking God's hand of protection and his blessings of prosperity.

    "I think if we can get back to that, our country will be a safer, more prosperous and healthier nation."

    That does NOT translate to what the author is trying to spoon feed you.

    Don't be a sucker.


    BTW, Roosevelt, one of the left's biggest heroes said this

    My Fellow Americans:

    Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our Allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.

    And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:

    Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

    Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

    They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

    They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest -- until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men's souls will be shaken with the violences of war.

    For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

    Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.

    And for us at home -- fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas, whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them -- help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.

    Many people have urged that I call the nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.

    Give us strength, too -- strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces.

    And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

    And, O Lord, give us faith. Give us faith in Thee; faith in our sons; faith in each other; faith in our united crusade. Let not the keeness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment -- let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

    With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogances. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace -- a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

    Thy will be done, Almighty God.

    Amen.

    Franklin D. Roosevelt - June 6, 1944


    It is NOT out of the mainstream for our nation to have deeply religious presidents.

    Stop trying to rewrite the history of this nation by spitting on any political figure who professes their religious feelings.
    Yeah, but he was a socialist, so he didn't really believe that ****. He said it for political posturing.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)

    Just like Huckabee, isn't she. I am terribly afraid of the fundamentalist.
    Sarah Palin is a retard and we'll do well not to listen to her.

    What part do you see as ambiguous crap?
    The words "law" "establishment" and "religion" were ambiguous in 1789, boo.

    Read the words, use the standard dictionary meanings, and there is no ambiguity that I can see.
    In 1789, standard dictionary meanings weren't used to ascertain the general understanding of words in a constitution.

    Things like this will lose her own base, honestly - more and more people are anti-religion these days. . . and her suggestion is atrociously unconstitutional. Apparently she doesn't get the problem with religion in our country's history - she's another moron hiding behind her bible.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion," seems to prohibit any laws, which shall recognize, found, confirm, or patronize any particular religion, or form of religion, whether permanent or temporary, whether already existing, or to arise in future. In this clause, establishment seems equivalent in meaning to settlement, recognition, or support.

    No he wasn't. Not even close.

    Many of the Founding Fathers were religious radicals btw.

    What part do you see as ambiguous crap? Read the words, use the standard dictionary meanings, and there is no ambiguity that I can see. My understanding is:

    The federal government may not pass laws that:
    1. establish an offical national religion
    2. limit any religion or their practices
    3. allow prosecution of people or other entities for their opinions or views
    4. do not allow people to meet peaceably
    5. do not allow people to utilize the judicial branch of the government
    1 1/2: endorse, assist, or advance religious belief or practice
