Corrective Bible Study for Palin

Though Sarah Palin would like us to believe that her Christianity is evidence of her being an especially fine human being, a listener who emailed Friday's Diane Rehm show, Hour 1 (26 minutes in on the podcast), cut through the pollution-filled PR on Palin to deliver a shuddering message:

"As a committed Christian, I was deeply offended by Sarah Palin and the Republican delegates mocking and belittling community organizers the other night... Jesus was a community organizer. Pontius Pilate was a governor."

Based on recent reports regarding her support of polluters in Alaska and incompetence as a Mayor (here  and here), it looks Ms. Palin may also need a review of the Ten Commandments.

Of course, as a "Christian", Ms. Palin could simplify her study by simply reviewing the way Jesus Christ condensed the commandments,
