You know what kills me about these people that try to shove religion down your throat? You know, we need to be a moral country with religious values blah blah blah? They're usually hypocrites. Problem is they can't seem to show me an example I want to follow. I had a guy tell me I need to live a more Christian life. Say what? He's been married four times!
And I'll be damned if I'm going to have some dumb broad (Palin) tell me about being religious when when she had to get married and I didn't. ( Oh yes her first child was born much less than 9 months after she got married.) You do the math. And her religious values were passed on so well her daughter did the exact same thing.
And don't tell me having a child with Downs Syndrome was a gift from God when in reality she was too dumb to prevent pregnancy after the age of 45, when the chances of having a child with this syndrome goes remarkably up. Don't get me wrong I have nothing against these kids but in an low income family who ends up taking care of them once the parents pass on? You guessed it. The state. How republican.
There's Newt Gingerich that touted the new moral majority that cheated on his wife. There's the politician that was caught on microphone bragging about his mistress that got all those awards for family values. There's the senator caught in the bathroom making sexual advances that bashed gays.
It's goes on and on. Hypocrites.
Two things I've learned in the short 52 years I've been on earth:
1.) If it sounds too good to be true it probably is
2.) If someone wears their religion on their sleeve their usually a hypocrite.

There have always been hypocrites. One of my favorite examples is jesus writing in the sand as he challanged the crowd, "Let he who is without sin throw the first stone." I don't have to wonder too long just What he was writing that made the crowd turn away.
That being said, I would prefer that a politician not speak so much of their faith that it obstructs my observation of whether or not they are living it.
I will never understand the absolute hysteria that Palin provokes. Seems to me that we have worse people in public life who draw far less attention.
As for Palin, she could start by apologizing for endorsing 'death panels' as govt of Alaska, then flip-flopping after Obama was elected (I doubt that Jeebus would approve of her pulling the plug our our grannies).
You continue to propagate this lie despite having run from defending it every time you are confronted on it.
It clearly is a statement encouraging individuals to plan advanced directives for themselves in the event that they cannot speak for themselves.WHEREAS, Healthcare Decisions Day is designed to raise public awareness of the need to plan ahead for healthcare decisions, related to end of life care and medical decision-making whenever patients are unable to speak for themselves and to encourage the specific use of advance directives to communicate these important healthcare decisions. WHEREAS, in Alaska, Alaska Statute 13.52 provides the specifics of the advance directives law and offers a model form for patient use.
