Sarah Palin: Dominionist Stalking Horse
by dogemperor
Fri Aug 29, 2008 at 03:21:50 PM PDT

The big news, obviously, in the blogosphere today is John McCain's surprise pick for the Republican veep nominee--a relative unknown by the name of Sarah Palin, whom--at least in the more conventional political circles--would appear to be a complete cypher.

Unfortunately, if one digs just a bit deeper, Palin is found to have some very interesting--and very disturbing--connections...among them, being potentially the first Assemblies-linked VP candidate and having a number of links to dominionist groups targeting kids via "bait and switch" evangelism.

Sarah Palin's connections that McCain doesn't want you to know about

There are quite a number of extremely troubling links between Sarah Palin and neopentecostal dominionists--enough that, in truth, she may be ultimately as much of a "dream candidate" for the dominionist movement as Mike Huckabee was. Even worse, she's running in a manner that has been frighteningly successful for dominionist groups since the early 80's--specifically, as a "stealth candidate".

Palin's Assemblies linkage

The first link in and of itself is a doozy--and one of the most damning indeed. No less than the official newsletter of the Assemblies of God of Alaska promotes her proudly as one of the denomination's own, and she was actually feted at an official function of the Assemblies' Alaska District as recently as this year:

The opening night banquet of the 2008 Alaska District Council was honored to have Governor Sarah Palin address the delegates and guests. Governor Palin spoke of her appreciation for the Assemblies of God and requested that the Council pray for both her and the State of Alaska. Superintendent Ted Boatsman, who was Palinís junior high pastor at Wasilla Assembly of God, along with Pastor Mike Rose of Juneau Christian Center, where Palin presently attends church when in Juneau, laid hands on the Governor and led the Council in prayer.

Palin, who was elected Governor in 2007, is Alaskaís youngest governor and the first female governor of the state. She just recently gave birth to her fifth child, Trig. Palin spoke of the faith challenge she faced when learning that Trig would be a Downs Syndrome child. However, she and her husband, Todd, believe that every child is a gift of God, deserving of life, and that God was asking them to accept His will for their lives. The Alaska District Council believes that the State of Alaska is blessed to have a woman of faith and courage as Governor.

A look at the home website of Palin's church tends to be revealing. Among other things, a particular Assemblies buzzword associated frequently with Hillsong A/G and New Zealand Assemblies churches shows up ("Destiny", here, is a buzzword for "Joel's Army", and is being preferred even as the phrase "Joel's Army" is getting enough negative spin that even the Assemblies is now having to do some rather massive spin control); cell churches are promoted (of the same sort that are linked to short-term and longterm psychological damage and are among the most coercive tactics ever documented in spiritually abusive groups). The church, like a number of other large Assemblies churches, is the center of a dominionist broadcast TV center whose programming is carried across multiple channels in Alaska.

In a trend that has been recently documented by no less than Southern Poverty Law Center (in its recent report on the Joel's Army movement), the church operates a Seven Project-esque targeted recruitment campaign aiming at teens (this is common across the Assemblies and across "Joel's Army" groups in general; fully a third of the documented national-level front groups operated by the Assemblies target teens).

And...believe you me, Palin's church is definitely "Joel's Army".

Mike Rose, pastor of Juneau Christian Center (Palin's church), is noted to be connected with the "Third Wave Movement"--a movement in neopente dominionist circles that is the major theological home of "Joel's Army". In fact, he's quite closely connected with Rodney Howard-Browne, a major (in fact, for some years, the major promoter) of "Third Wave" neopente dominionism, and actively promotes this insanity in his church:

Is there anyone's character that political hacks will not asassinate? Fresh meat!!!!

No I guess not. The only Perfect one was Christ and you guys still asassinate His character 2000 years later.

Where is my tiny violin. I can tell it like it is while the MSM handles this retard creationist with kid gloves.

So you want to control women's lives? So you want a creationist who believes that animals are below humans so it doesn't matter if they die or are made extinct?

Palin and her church believe humans were alive during the time of dinosaurs. Did they ride around on them in saddles?

What a weak rebuttal of the OP. Incredible! A possible future president who does not believe in birth control methods for married couples. That will get her elected. Ha! Ha!

The only argument the Repukes have going now is sympathy for her because she is a woman.

That is not enough to get McCain elected. I think he just lost the election with his pick of a retard for VP. She knows NOTHING about foreign policy. That's just for starters...

Biden must be having a good laugh and looking forward to the debates.

I did a bit of searching on this OP and it probably the most scary thing about Palin.......here is one of the views that Joel's Army holds.....

"So far, few members of the secular media have taken notice of Joel's Army, even as they report on Protestant dominionists like Pat Robertson or the more outrageous calls for the stoning of gays and lesbians emanating from Reconstructionist circles.."

Also... Palin has her husband at closed meetings because of course in her religion the man controls the woman.

Can you imagine this guy given access to the "nuklar" button not to mention that Mr. Palin works for foreign oil interests.

Wow, McCain definately did not vet her.

I knew there had to be something a little curious about her but this Assembly of God angle is not the smoking gun. It is interesting however.

Why are some of you so "disturbed" about her pro-life position? OK, so IF she becomes President, and IF a supreme court vacancy turns up, she may nominate a pro-lifer. This is all you care about? Abortion is wrong, whether it is legal or not. She, like everyone else is entitled to her opinion. I am looking for the real threat to us by her nomination as a VP candidate though. You pro-abortion clowns really are fucked up.

If Obama thinks this will help him become eligible to become President (Kenyan born), he is deluded. Hillary has not given up on the nomination, mark my word. BTW, Biden is a worse pick than a pro-life woman. McCain should thank Obama, that pick gave McCain the luxury of picking a woman with zero experience but a very nice ass.

Re: Palin: Dominionist Stalking Horse (psst McCain doesn't want you to know this)
The Assemblies church has been attacked with all kinds of false accusations. Joel's Army, while in this case did split off from an Assemblies church, is not an Assemblies denomination.
Moreover, Sarah Palin no longer attends that church. The reason for this is unsure, but what we do know is more important at the moment.
We have on one side of the ballot a woman who is a member of the Assemblies church. We have on the other side of the ballot a man who is anti-Christ, and has no morals to speak of. He is radically pro-abortion and his beliefs are rather volatile in nature. Most people believe him to be a Muslim, but he will not comment on this matter.

The choice is quite clear. You have the choice between a Christian or an anti-Christian. Unfortunately the United States made a very bad choice.
