It gets worse:

Palin: Iraq war 'a task that is from God'

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told ministry students at her former church that the United States sent troops to fight in the Iraq war on a "task that is from God."

In an address last June, the Republican vice presidential candidate also urged ministry students to pray for a plan to build a $30 billion natural gas pipeline in the state, calling it "God's will."

Politicians will say anything to appease whoever is in the room. They're two-faced and hypocritical, and have no conscience.

It's especially beneficial for Republicans to make those kind of statements in front of ministry types because the Republican party is still, by and large, the espoused Christian party in America. My guess is, she's towing the party line.

Still, highly offensive stuff.

"Offensive"? Try "psychopathic."

You guys should check out the video the story is based on.

I watched it earlier, before I realized there was a story to go with it, and almost did a spit take when she got to the part about the Iraq war.

Beware, though, her voice is very annoying.

From the video noted above:

On the $30 billion natural gas pipeline Palin is advocating for--

"I think God's will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built. So pray for that."

I had no idea it was God's will to unify people and energy corporations to construct gas pipelines.
That God guy sure works in some mysterious ways...
