Former U.S. Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld used 'biblical images' to deliver reports on the war in Iraq to President Bush.
One example had a U.S. Abrams tank in the desert and below it the biblical quote from Ephesians: 'Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.'
Another brief showed an image of Saddam under a quote from the First Epistle of Peter: 'It is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men.'
The biblical remarks take on a greater significance as it is now known President Bush considered he was on a mission from God when he ordered the 2003 invasion.
Sarah Palin said something on the same lines:
The snippet above was filmed on the day Sarah Palin addressed the Masters Commission graduates at the Wasilla Assembly of God. She claimed travel and expenses from the state to speak to her supporters. When challenged about it, her office said it was OK because she had attended the installation of Rabbi Michael Oblath. I very much doubt that Sarah Palin considered the congregation at the synagogue instrumental in her elevation to the office of governor. I can't see them joining hands, asking God to make a way for her...
Sarah Palin has great difficulty keeping her personal agenda out of her conduct as governor. It is the fact that she mixes her personal interests with state business that has landed into so much trouble regarding ethics, be it family travel or advertising her husbands sponsors. The religion issue has not been properly challenged yet.
Please note that on the second video she goes along with the concept that Alaska is the last refuge in the end of days, joining in prayer, etc. Perhaps that explains her approach to governing and her refusal fo invest state funds in some areas.
The end is nigh!
Sarah Palin praised pastor Muthee, saying what a powerful message he had. The following video shows how his Evangelical Church works in Nigeria:
