Sarah Palin’s emails, released late last week demonstrating how she found strength and guidance in her Christian faith, are the latest target of the mainstream media.
National Journal included Palin’s prayer for God’s guidance on the Alaska’s budget in what it featured as the top 10 “revelations” from her emails Sunday. “I have been praying for wisdom on this … God will have to show me what to do on the people’s budget because I don’t yet know the right path … He will show me though,” Palin was quoted as saying in an email.
This was one of the 13,000 emails from her first 21 months as the governor of Alaska released last Friday.
The Associated Press also found Palin’s prayer worth a special mention while portraying her in a negative light. “At least once, she prayed for strength,” the newswire exclaimed. “Other times, she fired off messages to her aides, most fierce when the subject was defending her record or her family.”
Palin, a possible candidate in the 2012 presidential election, has been vocal about her Christian faith. In August 2008, when Time’s Jay Newton Small interviewed then little-known Palin on phone, she identified her religion as Christianity saying she was a “Bible-believing Christian” and attended “a non-denominational Bible church.” “I was baptized Catholic as a newborn and then my family started going to non-denominational churches throughout our life,” she said.
In another interview, with CBS, on June 2, 2010, Palin said she did not intend to impose her faith on others. “I think it [evolution] should be taught as an accepted principle. And, as you know, I say that also as the daughter of a school teacher, a science teacher, who has really instilled in me a respect for science. It should be taught in our schools. And I won’t deny that I see the hand of God in this beautiful creation that is Earth. But that is not part of the state policy or a local curriculum in a school district.” She said this describing herself as “an open book.”
