Sarah Palin's churches are actively involved in a resurgent movement that was declared heretical by the Assemblies of God in 1949. This is the same 'Spiritual Warfare' movement that was featured in the award winning movie, "Jesus Camp," which showed young children being trained to do battle for the Lord. At least three of four of Palin's churches are involved with major organizations and leaders of this movement, which is referred to as The Third Wave of the Holy Spirit or the New Apostolic Reformation. The movement is training a young "Joel's Army" to take dominion over the United States and the world.

Has anyone ever noticed how insufferably tacky the hard right is?
I could go on at length about the many and idiotically tacky comments that have come from the right.

Palin church promotes converting gays
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Gov. Sarah Palin's church is promoting a conference that promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through the power of prayer.
"You'll be encouraged by the power of God's love and His desire to transform the lives of those impacted by homosexuality," according to the insert in the bulletin of the Wasilla Bible Church, where Palin has prayed for about six years.
"The Master's Commission, a generational call to character" is not just another church program. It is a one year, put your life on hold, give everything you have adventure that will radically change the way you look at the purpose of your life.
# To see young men and women motivated and captivated by the increasing revelation that their lives are not their own, and to be fully sold out to the principles and purposes of God.
# To see young men and women develop and pursue intimate, effective and radical relationships with God the Father, Jesus His Son, His Holy Spirit, the generations that have gone before them and one another.
# To see young men be men who are not afraid to lead and are violent in their pursuit of righteousness.
