The Empress Has TOO MANY CLOTHES: Does Sarah Palin’s $150,000 Dollar Spending Spree on Clothes Open Her Up to Accusations of Hypocricy and Wrecklessness with Money?

Sarah Palin spending $150,000 dollars on clothes strikes me as inconsistent with her Christian witness.

Jesus, in the Sermon on the Mount (for example) explicitly says don’t spend lavishly on clothing. 

Upholding Christian values, but not practicing them, is called hypocricy.

And if following the Sermon on the Mount is an impossible standard to expect Christians to actually follow, then it seems ridiculous for anybody to ever call themselves a Christian.

Think about it: “I’m a Christian who doesn’t follow the teachings of Jesus!”

If words mean anything then the very definition of a Christian is “somebody who follows the teachings of Jesus.”

Someone who doesn’t do that, but still says that they are a follower of Jesus, seems to me to be completely confused—or trying to deceive others about what they’re really about.

And how can Sarah Palin manage government money responsibly if she cannot manage campaign money responsibly?
