Kenyan Witch Fighter Thomas Muthee Anoints Palin (United States, Kenya)

Max, 24 Sept. 2008

On September 20 and 21, I attended services at the church Sarah Palin belonged to since she was an adolescent, the Wasilla Assembly of God. Though Palin officially left the church in 2002, she is listed on its website as “a friend,” and spoke there as recently as June 8 of this year.
