The Friendly Atheist has a bunch of posts up about Sarah Palin (McCain’s Vice-President choice). I liked this part:
In 2006, a questionnaire was sent to all candidates for the gubernatorial race in Alaska.
One of the questions was this:
11. Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?
Here is Sarah Palin’s answer:
SP: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I’ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.
No word on whether Sarah Palin also thinks that “If English was good enough for Jesus, then it’s good enough for me!”. But seriously, it shows how much the Christian right is immersed in ignorance and historical revisionism.
