Palin's Witch-Fighting Pastor

Scrubbed video from Wasilla Assembly of God church (May, 2005). Sarah Palin appears starting at 7:12

Max Blumenthal: The Witch Fighter Anoints Palin

The audio on this video is pretty loud, so be forewarned.

As a lapsed Catholic/current atheist I find this deeply weird. The Kenyan witch-fighting pastor actually prays to protect her from the "spirit of witchcraft," and she stands there with her eyes closed as though this were a perfectly reasonable faith.

When I hear witches I think Salem and The Crucible (hysteria and woman-hating) or Wiccans (peaceful, earthloving humanists.) This guy looks like he'd fit right in in Salem.
