Palin Trashes “Church Of Big Government”

As Christmas approaches, conservative Christians must once again witness an attack on the true meaning of the Holiday as leftists redefine the season in secular terms. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin addressed this trend, along with its underlying causes, during a recent speech at a dinner hosted by the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition.

Citing an ever-present “War on Christmas,” Palin identified the “politically correct police out there” as the group responsible. Though the ongoing fight against the Christian Holiday is an affront to believers across the nation, she cautioned it is merely a “symptom of a bigger issue.”

While it is obvious leftists take issue with faith in God of the Holy Bible, she pointed out the hypocrisy with which they show unwavering faith in the state.

She called out the “scrooges who are too enlightened for religion,” marveling at the fact the same activists show “zealot-like faith in the church of big government.”

Exploring the topic further, Palin explained why putting faith in a frequently fallible federal bureaucracy is detrimental for the future of this nation. Primarily, she explained, the government does not deserve the people’s trust because “it does not have faith in us.”

Furthermore, while its proponents claim the “best and brightest” minds are working in the public sector, Palin pointed out numerous recent examples of spectacular governmental failure or corruption.

Scandals involving ObamaCare, the National Security Agency, and the administration’s politicization of last month’s government shutdown prove Washington, D.C., is not the benevolent force many on the left claim.

“We’re not wards of state,” she said, “but free men and women who can live good lives without D.C.’s appointed best and brightest telling us what to do.”

Her most pointed indictment of this culture came when she called out the “immoral and unscrupulous” politicians able to work at cross purposes with the American public due to the complacency of a “lapdog media.”

Too many elected officials are “enriching themselves and their cronies while their nation goes bankrupt,” she said, which amounts to nothing less than “dictatorship.”

The left routinely mocks and disparages Sarah Palin, along with a few other outspoken conservatives, in an effort to discredit her strong defense of conservatism. Her ability to plainly address the virtues of individual liberty and limited government make her a constant threat to the progressive power structure.

    All I've got to say is you got to love Palin she tells it like it is.She got more balls then most of the republican men including that liberal fat ass from NJ and his Twinkie eating family.She should run for the senate in Alaska because that Murkowski is a RINO.

    Sorry people, but if you 'celebrate' Christmas, you are celebrating a pagan holiday. While it might have included the idea of Christ and his birth, it is as far from Christianity as one can get.
    The Bible speaks directly against a 'christmas' tree.
    Jeremiah 10 states it clearly.
    Jeremiah 10:3-4 (KJV) "3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not."
    Feel free to ask any 'elder' how they supported their 'christmas tree' before tree stands were created.

    So then I ask, what are those fighting for 'Christmas' really fighting for?
    I'm sure to hear the excuses and the supporting comments.
    I won't walk into a church that has Christmas decorations and a tree up. How can it be a Christian church while following a pagan religion?
    I condemn no one for doing as they wish. Everyone must answer for their own actions.
    As for me and mine, my house shall serve the Lord.

      Someone must have really hurt you somewhere in your life to be like this.Your starting to sound like one of those liberal democraps.My house also serves the lord but I'm not as bitter as you and neither were my ex in laws who where native Americans.

      • Seeks_the_truth says:

        Bitter for following what the Bible says?
        I always thought you believed in God and in his word. Don't you follow his word? I thought you did.
        I could say the same about you. It is the liberal way throwing out insults when you don't agree.
        You must have been badly brainwashed to believe what you're told and not what God tells you.

        How can you read Jeremiah 10 and NOT see how christmas is against the Bible?
        Jeremiah 10:1-8 (KJV)
        "1 Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
        2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
        3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
        4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
        5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
        6 Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.
        7 Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? for to thee doth it appertain: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto thee.
        8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities."

        You can't serve two masters. Either it's God or man. When God said NOT to follow the ways of the heathen and bring a tree into your home, adorn it with silver and gold, and you do it anyways, one can see just who that home follows.

        Has nothing to do with my heritage and EVERYTHING to do with what the Bible says. Many Amish, Jewish, Church of God, JW and many other Christian religions don't acknowledge christmas either.
        As you always say, you never research.
        I dare you to research how christmas came about. Then read the Bible at the scripture I gave you. If you are a true Christian, you'll then wonder why you always thought it was the day of the birth of Jesus. How it was ok to sing songs of praise to a tree. (O Christmas Tree)
        On the other hand, if you are so sure of your convictions, please show me scripture that says honor the birth of Christ on that day (or any other day for that matter) and bring a tree into your home.
        Open my eyes then to the truth.

        Don't be as the liberals and just spout insults. Back it with facts.
        Sorry you took such offense to the truth. Won't stop me from telling it.
