Those who have no god are to themselves a god, and so there is no moral right or wrong except for what one thinks it to be to himself. Hitler therefore cannot be condemned for his actions, just as the 9/11 terrorists can for theirs. Both did what was morally right in their eyes. Killing cannot be wrong, nor rape or cannibalism. Pediphelia, torture, sex with animals etc would all be just fine.

I'm very curious to hear her answers to these questions.

Interpretations differ from Church to Church, and even Individual to Individual, but this is a belief well versed in the Holy Book, and one which is seen as completely acceptable within the modern confines of the Christian Church.

Whether the message is "god damn america" or "god wants us to win" (the war), both are batspit crazy.
Just because your candidate's church speaks in tongues and nonsense, instead of speaking loud and critical - doesn't mean they are any more reasonable. Personally, I would rather follow someone critical of the country, than someone that thinks war is a gift from god.

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.
ast Sunday our research team released a video, a ten-minute mini-documentary, focusing on the Wasilla Assemblies of God and the video seemed on the verge of a massive "viral" breakthrough when YouTube pulled it down, citing "inappropriate content."
At the point the video was censored by YouTube it had been viewed by almost 160,000 people. The short of it is that YouTube has censored a video documentary that appeared to be close to having an effect on a hard fought and contentious American presidential election.
According to the Christian Science Monitor, six months of fervent prayer and research identified the source of the witchcraft as a local woman called Mama Jane, who ran a "divination" center called the Emmanuel Clinic.
Her alleged involvement in fortune-telling and the fact that she lived near the site of a number of fatal car accidents led Muthee to publicly declare her a witch responsible for the town's ills and order her to offer her up her soul for salvation or leave Kiambu.
Says the Monitor, "Muthee held a crusade that 'brought about 200 people to Christ.'" They set up around-the-clock prayer intercession in the basement of a grocery store and eventually, says the pastor, "the demonic influence -- the 'principality' over Kiambu -- was broken," and Mama Jane fled the town.
if you go to the Wasilla Assembly of God web site now, all these sermons are gone. They’ve been erased. Even the page they were listed on is gone. They were taken offline right after Sarah Palin’s vice presidential campaign was announced.
Also erased from the Wasilla Assembly of God site is any mention of Thomas Muthee. The following message was there as recently as August 25th:
“Bishop Thomas Muthee from Kenya
We were honored to have Bishop Thomas Muthee from Kenya, Africa with us. He has planted and oversees over 400 churches, and has a powerful ministry from God. You are encouraged to listen and watch these special messages from him.”
Now, that message is gone. It’s erased - even though Thomas Muthee is coming to the Wasilla Assembly of God church this weekend for a series of special sermons.
