I'd like to stop posting these. But this one, from a Pennsylvania Palin rally, is truly awful. You can find the accompanying article here. I have such mixed feelings. I want to share my outrage by letting people know this poison is out there. But I also worry that I'm spreading toxin merely by posting it. Troubled.
What's more, McCain held a rally in Davenport, Iowa yesterday. At that rally, a minister gave an invocation including the following language (you can find the full story here,):
"I would also pray, Lord, that your reputation is involved in all that happens between now and November, because there are millions of people around this world praying to their god - whether it’s Hindu, Buddha, Allah - that his opponent wins, for a variety of reasons,” Conrad said.The racism is frightening. But these words scare me much, much more.
"And Lord, I pray that you would guard your own reputation, because they’re going to think that their god is bigger than you, if that happens. So I pray that you will step forward and honor your own name with all that happens between now and Election Day.”
