Why Sarah Palin must NEVER become Vice President

Sarah Palin must NEVER become Vice President, the women hold extraordinarily bigoted and dangerous views.

Forget about her opposition for a rape victim to have an abortion that's just bizarre.

Her Church where she has worshipped all of her life believes that gays can be converted to heterosexuality by the power of prayer.

This is horrible, all actual research confirms that all ex-gay ministries do is cause more psychological harm, increase the risk of suicide and doesn't actually get rid of same sex feelings it just tries to block them and replace them with prayer programmes.

Let's face it the replacement of Sex Ed classes with faith based abstinence programs certainly seems to have been successful in her own family haven't they!

If the Republicans win the election they could divert massive funding away (not that George Bush has not) from counselling services, awareness programs and give this money to faith based conversion programs.

I will be fair and say that as yet Sarah herself has not publicly stated her position, but her past actions in vetoing same sex equality legislation in Alaska has shown that she is not overly gay friendly.

She has in the past voiced opposition to providing equality for same sex couples but on the issue of conversion ministries we only have the policy of her church thus far.

Personally I don;t care if she says she does not support these things, she still supports organisations which do, which is akin to supporting the Nazi party but not supporting the policy of putting gays in concentration camps.

Extreme hatred and bigotry are not what the world and especially the United States people right now.

Election after election, the politicians just become more and more bizarre, but given that Sarah Palin is Pentecostal, and Assemblies of God at that, we have even more reason for concern.

I think, ultimately, though, the right (the hicks and the evangelicals) love this gun-toting, pro-life/anti-abortion, homophobic mum-of-pregnant-teen, despite the fact that she has virtually no experience and, until 3 weeks ago, the 10 people who live in Alaska were the only ones who had heard of her.

It's been interesting, really, because all this Palin talk has drawn away from Obama. It's like it's been CLINTON, OBAMA, CLINTON, OBAMA, OBAMA, OBAMA, Palin?

And don't forget that Palin also:

1) has a failing record when it comes to wildlife
2) has been a fiscally irresponsible mayor
3) rejects the notion that global warming is man-made
4) has ties to corruption and has started lying already

The list keeps getting longer but maybe after George W. a politician can't get any worse...or can it?

I thought the media's attempt to link Obama with the absurd radical views of his former pastor were ridiculous and a transparent attempt to smear him and I assume you agree. But to be fair, we shouldn't ascribe all the views of Palin's church to her either. Why don't we rely on what she actually says and does? She's clearly not a friend of gay rights, but the only veto I know of regarding this issue was when she vetoed a bill passed by the Republican legislature that barred the state govt. from implementing a court ruling mandating same-sex benefits. See the Gay City New (8/29/08). That was the right thing to do. What veto were you referring to? I'm in favor of Obama for president, but I believe in basic fairness.

Craig - that is the veto I was referring too.

I think the reason why I believe it's not the same as the Obama / Pastor issue was that Obama moved quickly to distance himself from the things that where said. Palin has not moved to do anything to diffuse the sitaution , and you are right until she does say or doesnt for that matter we are assuming. But if she doesnt say something on such an important topic then the sensible guess is that she support it.
