Video shows Sarah Palin being blessed 'against witchcraft'

Philippe Naughton

A grainy YouTube video has surfaced showing Sarah Palin being blessed in her hometown church three years ago by a Kenyan pastor who prayed for her protection from “witchcraft" as she prepared to seek higher office.

The video shows Ms Palin, John McCain's surprise pick as the Republican vice-presidential candidate, standing before Bishop Thomas Muthee in the pulpit of the Wasilla Assembly of God church, holding her hands open as he asked Jesus Christ to keep her safe from “every form of witchcraft”.

“Come on, talk to God about this woman. We declare, save her from Satan,” Bishop Muthee said as two attendants placed their hands on Ms Palin’s shoulders.

“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.”

Ms Palin filed campaign papers a few months later, in October 2005, and was elected governor the next year. She does not say anything on the video and keeps her head bowed throughout the blessing.

The Republican vice-presidential candidate was baptised at the church but stopped attending regularly in 2002. A spokesman for the McCain campaign declined to comment although the Associated Press reported that a person who answered the phone at the Wasilla church confirmed the video was from May 2005.

Pentecostals are conservative in their reading of the Bible and unlike most other Christians - including most evangelicals - they believe in “baptism in the Holy Spirit”. That can manifest itself through speaking in tongues, modern-day prophesy and faith healing, which includes the laying on of hands.

Maria Comella, a spokeswoman for the McCain-Palin campaign, has said that Ms Palin, who was baptised as a Roman Catholic as a newborn, attends different churches and does not consider herself Pentecostal.

That's actually not funny; It's scary!

Can't resist though: What was she actually afraid of? That members of the opposition party would secretly sacrifice a moose, chanting & dancing around a petroleum lamp out in the damp, cold pine forests?

Calm down. What happens, happens mostly without you.

Its worked hasnt it? look at all of the people bewitched to think she is the greatest thing since sliced bread...It seems the only stipulation is that she cant answer questions on camera or it begins to wear off...

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

I dont see the problem here. She was probably just trying to drum up support from that population....

Again, she's doing it to herself.  Not those posting such things about her's fault that she gives them the ammunition in spades.  It's the same with Biden.  *shrugs*  The cons go after him and Obama in full force, yet apparently it's uncool to go after Palin.

That's double standard right there.

(Oh and before you even go that rout..  I make fun of Biden when he hands out ammunition against him too.))

But I ain't going to defend Obama, you guys can do that, right?
