Christian Conservative = Radical Supremacist?

"There is no evidence that Palin was ever affiliated with white-supremacist groups during her years in Idaho or at home in Alaska. On the other hand, the beliefs of ultraconservative, evangelical churches like her family's come dangerously close to those of the Christian Identity movement of those years." ( 9/14/08. "Intolerance Thrives in Palin's Pacific Northwest" by Catherine McNicol Stock. Chair of the history department at Conneccticut College and author of "Rural Radicals: Righteous Rage in the American Grain.")

Editor's Comment: This article excerpt only goes to show that you can be a college professor and author and still sound like an elitist idiot. Of course, Ms. McNicol, let's conjection that Sarah belongs to the KKK or some other Aryan group because she attends a Bible-believing church. What an insult to the hundreds of Assembly of God churches and thousands of sincere Christians who attend those churches. Nothing like fear-mongering among the unchurched to try to brainwash them into believing that an "evangelical" church is "dangerously close" to a cultic offshoot. Professor, your research about Palin and logic about conservative churches is faulty, deceptive, and mean-spirited.
