Whether you like her or not what she said was prophetic when she ran for President. Sarah Palin said, "being politically correct is killing this country". No truer words have been spoken by any candidate.
Values like GENOCIDE, SLAVERY, HATE, OPPRESSION, MISOGYNY, FEAR, GREED, DISCRIMINATION, MURDER, RAPE, INCEST, DUGGAR MOLESTATION, ADULTERY and this is all because of religion....

Obviously Palin's words about abstaining from SEX before marriage were a LIE

Like he punished Canada and all the European countries who legalized gay marriage years ago? You know, the countries that are all kicking America's butt on almost every single measurable standard of societal growth and stability?

Great. We could use some of that punishment, whatever it is.

However, there is a part of me that, having heard the message of fire and brimstone every Sunday for 22 years, is a bit fearful of it happening. I look at things like the collapsing economy and skyrocketing oil prices and wonder if that may be punishment from God (Things spiraled out of control after California legalized gay marriage in Summer of 2008 but became relatively placid after Prop 8 passed until now when things are collapsing once again). I wonder if $100 oil and the crashing stock market has anything to do with Obama's DOMA policy? Does God still punish nations as in the Old Testament or does he deal more on an individual level in this age?
At the risk of going a little secular here, America will never be destroyed because the SCOTUS legalized gay marriage.

America began it's decent long before this and will not be destroyed by fire and brimstone raining out of the sky because of homosexuality. It will gradually descend into mediocrity and become a third-rate nation in about 100 years or so because of social and financial woes.

God's punishment sounds like a Moderator cut: bleep .

It is the wish of fundamentalist ideologues to be punished or enjoy punishment of others. It seems to be an erotic fantasy.

I say this because the idea of punishment seems to ooze from the pores of this ideology.

God is not going to destroy America. We're doing a fine job of it ourselves.
