Turns out the whole rag is like that. Sent this to Sprint's new customer link, an advertizer on Salon:

Topic; Sprint's advertizing in Salon.com

Please read this vile hit piece which you have paid for so you understand why I will never do business with Sprint. http://www.salon.com/opinion/feature/2008/09/09/palin_fundamentalist/

I will be spreading the connection between Sprint and Salon's filth as long as you continue to advertize on their slime filled pages.

Only problem every statement in there about Palin is a lie. Not one factually accurate statement. So this advocate of “fairness and tolerance” just demonstrated the sort of rabidly bigoted hyper partisan ignorance they accuse their foes on the Right of believing in.

On censorship, the teaching of creationism in schools,

Newsweek has already debunked those lies. Sarah Palin never asked anyone to censor books from a library. Nor did she espouse teaching creationism in schools. These are LIES.

“Any such reminders in public life will be viewed as “imposing religious beliefs” when in fact, they just exist, and it’s the person’s conscience that is making him feel uncomfortable.”

I think you’ve correctly identified the base cause of the left’s “outrage” at religion (well, at least against Christianity), really...

I’ve seen this very thing in my own children (at its most basic level). I’ll ask them to do something (help wash dishes, change the laundry, etc...). I won’t nag, but after a while if they haven’t done what I’ve asked, I will ask them again. Sometimes I get - “Gosh, I’m SO sorry... I just FORGOT! Quit trying to make me feel guilty, MOM!!!” and I will explain to them I’m using the same words (and tone of voice) as I used the first time when I asked, the only difference is that now your conscience is telling you I shouldn’t have to keep asking - you KNOW in your heart you should have done it the first time.

I think this is EXACTLY why people don’t want to be reminded that there are others who live a certain moral code. It is their own actions, and some basic fundamental understanding at play that makes them feel as if they are being “hounded” even when no-one is talking to them in particular. As you said — it’s their conscience — not anything anyone is doing TO them.

“Not only does Palin not believe global warming is “man-made,” she favors massive new drilling to spew more carbon into the atmosphere.”

You’ve posted another lesson from offspring concerning our spiritual relationship with God.

My children have taught me more about the fallen sinner’s rebellion to God than anything else in my life ever has.

Is it any wonder that the Left, and Satan, are anti-children and anti-family?

They are such a great personal growth tool and a blessing from God.

A VERY good idea. We should hit all of their major advertisers.

“What’s the difference between Palin and Muslim fundamentalists? Lipstick”

Wow. The author proves that Palin is actually no different than a fundamentalist muslim. Except that sane people know there is a world of difference. Too bad there were no sane editors at Salon to smack some sense into this dipstick and keep him from making a fool of himself.

That is SO true... I’ve learned a lot myself - and it’s made me look back and examine so many things in my own life, and not just from my own childhood either! LOL

Ahhh... this hit piece says it all.... the liberal elitists are really, really out of touch with the “Great American Fly-over”. Like I have said before, hitting rock bottom isn’t enough for you guys, you just keep digging. It is obvious that either Lefties didn’t learn from McGovern... and/or they have stopped teaching that part of history in those lalala classrooms at those lalala universities....

not just from my own childhood

it's more about your role as a "child of God" that you get the training in when you become a parent

The real difference between Protestant and moslem fundamentalists is that the former never seem to benefit from multiculturalism (at least not if they're white).

Liberals only criticize moslem fundamentalists in order to condemn Fundamentalist Protestants. Other than that they're a cherished part of the family of the "oppressed."

Palin has a right to her religious beliefs, as do fundamentalist Muslims who agree with her on so many issues of social policy. None of them has a right, however, to impose their beliefs on others by capturing and deploying the executive power of the state.

Oh, right. Supposed to get it implemented via the 9 robed unelected "imposers" instead. It's all about retaining the right to kill babies. KILL, KILL, KILL. Leftism is a mental retardation. These posters should change the name from Salon to Colon.

I think the burkas Palin wears, as a fundamentalist muslim, are much nicer than those worn by the other fundamentalist muslim women. They need to follow her lead. So does Juan Cole.

This is the next tactic, and the one that might stick.

Here on FR, there are a few people who are anti Palin for the very reasons mentioned. Never mind most of the points are bogus and the librarian one is not as it is being represented.
