“What does Sarah Palin believe?” is a frequently asked question on the campaign trail. But it is not what you think it is. Despite her religious background, Palin has not publicly addressed the question. As governor of Alaska, she has a history of supporting Israel. She has praised end-times evangelists who preach that Russia will attack Israel and kill Jews. While she has not directly responded to this statement, she has made a number of other comments regarding the Jewish religion.
One of the biggest questions the book addresses is about Sarah Palin’s belief in biblical prophecy. As a Christian, she strongly opposes same-sex marriage and civil unions. As a candidate for the governorship of Alaska in 2006, Palin supported an amendment to the state constitution that prohibits same-sex marriage. In addition to this, she has signed a proclamation honoring jurors. This proclamation was signed by Palin on August 31, 2007, in celebration of the 337th anniversary of the trial of William Penn and William Mead. The Quaker preacher’s words were the deciding factor in their acquittal.
Another major question raised by Gibson is the issue of biblical prophecy. Christians have been waiting for the second coming of Christ for 2,000 years. Many believers interpret biblical prophecy metaphorically, but many others take the apocalypse literally. Those who interpret the Bible literally have built enormous followings and political heft, and are much closer to the Oval Office than those who don’t.
