Rev. Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite, professor of theology at Chicago Theological Seminary, has found a new avenue for attacking Sarah Palin; the Bible. She writes in the often ridiculous “On Faith” blog that Palin can not be trusted to run the country because she believes that the Bible is the word of God.
“Wives be subject to your husbands, as unto the Lord.” So says the Christian scriptures in Ephesians, 5:22. What I would like to know, first of all, is who is going to have the final authority as Vice-President if Sarah Palin is elected, Palin or her husband? In fact, I think the first order of business with Palin is to ask her to give the same kind of speech that was demanded of John F. Kennedy re his Catholicism. Kennedy said he would obey the Constitution over the Pope. Will Palin obey the Constitution over her husband?
So, by electing Sarah Palin we’re essentially electing her husband. I like the theory. She’s like a Christian Manchurian candidate.
So here’s the scene from the White House in 2012. Sarah Palin is President. Cue the evil sounding music. A dark and stormy night.
Palin’s husband: Push the red button, Sarah.
Sarah: But that will start a nuclear war and we wouldn’t want…
Palin’s husband: I am your husband and you are subject to me so get pushin’ baby.
Sarah: Well, if it says it in the Bible I guess I have to.
The missiles launch. Pull back and show an ominous close-up of the Bible.
