    It can't be. Only Obama hangs out with 'radical extremists, terrorists, and racists'.

    I used to go to a pentecostal church at one time. Strange things at times but I don't ever remember someone being prayed over to protect them from witches.

    As to Dooms reply. I have also visited a church that was a snake handler church. Was curious about it so I went to one when I was visiting a relative. One of the places was in a town that used to be called Booger Hole...no I am not making that up.:laugh2:

    Snake handler church was not pentecostal...at least that one was not and the year I went to the national pentecostal youth rally I did not meet any of the pentecostal church youth that went to churches that did the snake handling thing.

    I am at work.

    I will this afternoon.

    But from the description it sounds like she was just respecting another heritage.

    Like when McCain took place in Vietnam rituals

    Or Obama took part in Muslim rituals.

    They are politicians ..... its what they do.

    She probably thought she was scoring points taking part in an "African" ritual.

    The silliness of both campaigns have really given me pause.

    I have read that the guy doing the praying was from africa and while in africa he claimed the problems of a town were because a woman in said town was a witch.

    Later he led the town to confront the lady, killing her pet snake, and forced her to leave the town.

    So crazy stuff...gets crazier.

    I don't think it was the religious aspects that upset people about Jeremiah Wright... it was the flagrant hate-America rhetoric and racially-charged language.

    In that context, I think the possibly anti-semetic aspects of the speech would be the most troubling. Palin, for what it's worth, seems to be super-pro-Israel, though. Many evangelicals seem to be more pro-Israel than many American jews, for whatever reason.

    Well most states it is outlawed but there are a few that still allow snake handlers. Having said that I don't think all pentencostals are snake handlers but the fun ones are. :laugh2:

    Well deliverance was not based in WV...it was based in Georgia.

    And the Beverly Hillbillies were not from WV, they were from the Ozarks in Arkansas.

    However...snake handling still goes on legally in WV.

    You might be right.

    I have heard two different versions.

    One they are from the ozarks in Arkansas, the other they are from the Smokies in Tennessee.

    Either way, they are not from WV.

    I know you were joking about the deliverance thing, and I joke about it all the time.

    However you would be surprised how many times I have met people that actually think both were from WV.
