More Thoughts on the Sarah Palin Thing: Potential to Bring About the "End Times"

From the article, Palin's Faith is Seen in Church Upbringing:

At the Pentecostal church where Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin worshipped for more than two decades, congregants speak in tongues and are part of a faith that believes humanity is in its "end times" -- the days preceding a world-ending cataclysm bringing Christian redemption and the second coming of Jesus.

I tend to agree with the perspective that David Gushee shares later in the article:

Mr. Gushee says Gov. Palin should explain her beliefs concerning the inevitability of a cataclysm and the end of time. "To me, it is highly relevant to someone who potentially has her hand on the nuclear button," he says. "If that is her worldview, I would want to know about that."

Sarah Palin simply cannot be one heartbeat away from the Presidency.
