As usual, it’s nothing most Christians haven’t seen, but it scares the hell out of secularists. Thomas Muthee preaches a brief sermon to Wasilla Assembly of God about the need for Christians to “infiltrate” politics, media, government and education. Then he and two men lay hands on Palin, and Muthee prays a mundane Pentecostal prayer rebuking “every form of witchcraft:”
"Come on, talk to God about this woman. We declare, save her from Satan … Make her way my God. Bring finances her way even for the campaign in the name of Jesus. … Use her to turn this nation the other way around. … We come against every hindrance of the enemy standing in her way today."
Palin mentioned the incident in the other weird church clip from 2008:
This guy’s really bold, he doesn’t even know what I’m going to do, he doesn’t know what my plans are. And he’s praying not “Oh Lord if it be your will may she become governor,” no, he just prayed for it. He said “Lord, make a way and let her do this next step." And that’s exactly what happened.
Muthee may be the creepiest pastor yet this year. He’s an actual witch hunter, who pin-pointed a woman named “Mama Jane” as a source of “demonic influence” and ran her out of the town where he ministered.
