Andrew Sullivan directs our attention to the 1 minute 20 second point of the video below.
It is there that Thomas Muthee talks about the need for Christians to enter the world of banking and big business in greater numbers, supplanting unbelievers and “Israelis” (Jews).
This is hardly surprising. Why wouldn’t a man with medieval notions about the power of witches also have medieval notions about the power of Jews?
And yes, Sarah Palin was in the audience when he said it:
And here’s the transcript of what he said:
The second area whereby God wants us, wants to penetrate in our society is in the economic area. The Bible says that the wealth of the wicked is stored up for the righteous. It’s high time that we have top Christian businessmen, businesswomen, bankers, you know, who are men and women of integrity running the economics of our nations. That’s what we are waiting for. That’s part and parcel of transformation. If you look at the—you know—if you look at the Israelites, that’s how they work. And that’s how they are, even today.
In other words, Muthee is saying:
- The wealth of the wicked (read Jews and nonbelievers) is being stored up for the people of God—and they will one day take control of it. The people of God don’t, in other words, control it yet. Jews and nonbelievers do.
- Jews and nonbelievers don’t run the world with integrity, but Christians will when they come to power.
- The takeover of the world by Christians “is what we’re waiting for.”
- Lastly, if you look at the Jews (the Israelites), they know how to run the economics of nations because “that’s how they work. And that’s how they are, even today.”
In a sane world, Sarah Palin would have to distance herself from this man.
