A Bit Of A Worry.
The upcoming US election worries me. The recent polls have shown that the McCain/Palin ticket is ahead. I find this quite unbelievable and really quite scary. Palin is a Creationist, in other words she believes the world is no more than 6,000 years old. This is despite ALL the evidence there is to prove that this is wrong. I have no problem with her being a religious woman. However when that religion leads her to throw away the truth then we better start worrying.
Palin also believes that global warming is not the fault of man and is part of 'God's plan'. Where does she get that from? Even George W Bush and man who has stuck his head in the sand over global warming for years and another of the US religious right has the intelligence to acknowledge it is man who has fucked up this planet.
The most worrying thing Palin has proclaimed recently though is over the war in Iraq which she proclaims is in Gods name!!! Now those of you know me will tell the rest of you that I am an atheist but I do have friends who have a faith and I find myself angry for their sake. How dare this woman make such proclamations. Not only is it offensive to millions of religious people but it is extremely dangerous. We are all aware that there are extremists out there who are prepared to kill in the name of their God. What we do not need is a potential world leader making it into a religious war. That could really end it all.
Hopefully the recent surge in the polls for the Republicans pegged back once the American public realise what a dangerous woman Palin is and Obama wins the election in November.
