Sarah Palin: American Law Should Be 'Based On The God Of The Bible And The Ten Commandments'
Sarah Palin joined Fox News's Bill O'Reilly recently to condemn the critics of the National Day of Prayer, saying that the Judeo-Christian belief was the basis for American law and should continue to be used as a guiding force for creating future legislation.
According to Palin, the recent backlash against the National Day of Prayer is proof that some people are trying to enact a "fundamental transformation of America" and to "revisit and rewrite history" in order to shift the Christian nation away from its spiritual roots.
Palins's advice: "Go back to what our founders and our founding documents meant -- they're quite clear -- that we would create law based on the God of the bible and the ten commandments.
"What in hell scares people about talking about America's foundation of faith?" Palin continued. "It is that world view that involves some people being afraid of being able to discuss our foundation, being able to discuss God in the public square, that's the only thing I can attribute it to."
Palin also criticized the decision to dis-invite the Rev. Franklin Graham from a Pentagon prayer service over concerns about his past inflammatory rhetoric about Islam, saying it was driven by a desire to be overly politically correct.

Um......WAT. I'm now quite certain that Sarah Palin has probably never even READ the U.S. Constitution, let alone could she be considered an authority on anything in it. The Constitution not only doesn't mention using God, the Bible, or the Ten Commandments as something to be considered in the making of laws, the First Amendment expressly prohibits it.
Would someone please point out where in that sentence it somehow invisibly includes the words, God, The Bible, or the Ten Commandments?
ETA: I realize now that I should have actually given this a different title. I should have called it: WHEREIN SARAH PALIN WRITES HER OWN GOD/FOUNDING FATHERS SLASHFIC.
That is all.
