Faith-based community organizers and Governor Sarah Palin

Faith-based community organizers and Governor Sarah Palin

Apparently Sarah Palin, the US vice-presidential candidate and governor of Alaska, has got Christians up in arms because of some disparaging remarks she made about community organizers.

This, as several bloggers have pointed out, is rather odd, because the Republican Party (which Palin represents) has advocated that many forms of social service should be done by faith-based organizations rather than by the government.

Pastor Shawna summarises what many others have said:

A commentator at MudFlats perfectly sums up the difference between community organizers and people like Gov. Palin: “Jesus was a community Organizer, and Pontius Pilate was a Governor.” She’s definitely acting more like Pilate than Christ.
