Sunday at Sarah Palin’s Church

Wasilla Bible Church | Wasilla, ALRepublican Vice Presidential candidate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, attends Wasilla Bible Church, a non-denominational church in Wasilla, Alaska. The Christian Post has an interesting article about what took place at Palin’s church on Sunday. Apparently there were quite a few guests in attendance.

  • Pastor Larry Kroon welcomed the attendees including the journalists and guests who were visiting.
  • The pastor asked any reporters who might be in the crowd to respect church members’ opportunity to worship. “This isn’t the place to be fishing for interviews,” he said.
  • He asked the congregants to pray for all of the candidates for president and vice president, and to be thankful that all four are willing to provide the nation with their public service.
  • He urged churchgoers to “pray for the press.” Kroon said the media are to be “cherished and respected,” citing 19th century philosopher Alexander de Tocqueville’s works describing a free press and freedom of religion as essential pillars of democracy.
  • He urged congregants to do their own thorough research and investigations when deciding who to vote for.

That all sounds reasonable to me. What do you think?
