Jim & Sarah pal around

by Jeremy Hooper

200810220824-1We've never heard a straight answer about whether or not Sarah Palin supports the Love Won Out "ex-gay" program that her home church was found to be promoting in its bulletin. However, in a new interview lovefest with Dr. James Dobson, we do get much insight into how the Alaska governor views LWO's host organization, the rabidly anti-gay Focus on the Family. Here's a snippet from the very conservative chat:

DOBSON: "...let me just say that you that, regardless of the outcome of this election, we would love to have you come by and see us here at Focus on the Family sometime. I know that this is an extremely stressful time for you and we’re not asking you to come now, but when the time permits, we’ll roll out the red carpet for you.”

PALIN: "I don’t even need any kind of red carpet but I would absolutely love to. Dr. Dobson, Todd is sitting right next to me here in this vehicle before we get on an airplane, so Todd and I too, after I speak with you, I’ll share this conversation with him and we’ll be praying too for your ministry and for those pastors whom you have just mentioned also. Collectively, we can do all that we can within us to strengthen our country and to let Americans know that government has to be on their side, it’s their government and as we seek God’s wisdom and His will in this election, we have to have faith that it’s all going to be good at the end of the day there on November 4th as this country moves forward."

But that's not all of the eyebrow-raising love. In the phoner, Palin also voices strong support for the extremely anti-gay Republican party platform, which Dobson proudly calls "the strongest pro-life, pro-family document to come out of a political party." She also indicates her belief that John McCain believes in the platform's "strong planks."

The good folks at Right Wing Watch have transcribed the entire interview. Go now:
