Palin’s supporters glossing over the main point

Christians across the nation are cheering the entrance of Mrs. Palin, forgetting that, according to the biblical qualifications for a civil magistrate, she as a woman is not qualified to hold this office (Ex. 18:21, Pro. 31:23, 1 Tim. 2:12). We believe that Mrs. Palin’s appointment as civil ruler, and indeed the feminist strides that made it possible, are a judgment from God (Isa. 3:12). We’re already suffering from one consequence of this judgment more severely than America realizes.

My two cents

I like it when writers get to the point quickly; it’s helpful for this type of blog.

But more importantly, I think the cited Bible verses are often glossed over by many people, so the result is a theological elephant in the room that Christians (and I suppose humanists) don’t want to accept. But I respect people more when they stick to the Bible in spite of any social convention or pressures.

On an emotional level, I love how Sarah Palin took that swipe at Michael Bloomberg’s soda law, but on a rational level, that’s trumped by the Botkin sisters’ exegesis. I guess feminists will play the victim, but that presupposes a humanistic worldview that spawns a concocted attitude of political entitlement—and I don’t subscribe to that.
