Palin: Iraq War is 'God's Plan'

A video has surfaced on the Internet that depicts Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin telling a church gathering that the U.S. mission in Iraq is a “task from God.”

The video, which appears in a number of versions on YouTube, was taped during the new Republican vice presidential candidate’s June 2008 visit to the Wasilla Bible Church in her current hometown of Wasilla, Alaska.

Palin tells the congregation that her son Track had just turned 19 and was in the Army with a scheduled deployment to Iraq in September, and she asks the gathering to pray for the “military men and women” in Iraq.

“Our leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God,” Palin says. “There is a plan and that is God’s plan.”

She also states that the construction of a planned $30 billion natural gas pipeline in Alaska is “God’s will.”

Says Palin: “God's will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built. So pray for that…

“We can work together to make sure God’s will [is] done here.”

Palin was originally baptized as a Roman Catholic, but her parents switched to a Pentecostal church, where she was rebaptized. The Wasilla Bible Church is an independent congregation.
