Kenyan Who Blessed Palin Chases Witches at Home (United States)

Zoe Alsop, October 12, 2008

KIAMBU, Kenya (WOMENSENEWS)–Back in 2005, when Sarah Palin was mayor of the tiny Alaskan town of Wasilla, nobody made much of a visit from a Pentecostal pastor by the name of Bishop Thomas Muthee from the somewhat larger Kenyan town of Kiambu.

False claims exposed of Kenyan pastor who protected Sarah Palin from witches

Telegraph, Nick Wadhams 15 Oct 2008

A Kenyan pastor who prayed to protect Vice- Presidential candidate Sarah Palin from witches is being criticised at home after it emerged that his chief claim to power – that he forced an evil, spell- casting woman from town – was false.

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.

I went specifically to see a pastor visiting from Kiambu, Kenya named Thomas Muthee. Muthee gained fame within Pentecostal circles by claiming that he defeated a local witch, Mama Jane, in a great spiritual battle, thus liberating his town from sin and opening its people to the spirit of Jesus.

Muthee’s mounting stardom took him to Wasilla Assembly of God in May, 2005, where he prayed over Palin and called upon Jesus to propel her into the governor’s mansion — and beyond. Muthee also implored Jesus to protect Palin from “the spirit of witchcraft.” The video archive of that startling sermon was scrubbed from Wasilla Assembly of God’s website, but now it has reappeared.

Mail Online, 18 Sept. 2008, Paul Thompson

Vice presidential pick Sarah Palin is known for her strident views on religion and the power of prayer. But her credibility is once again being questioned after an African pastor she credits with helping her political career was revealed to have waged a witch-hunt against a woman who was said to cause car crashes with her “demonic spells.”

Prayer Warriors and Sarah Palin Are Organizing Spiritual Warfare to Take Over America

Bill Berkowitz, AlterNet, 1 March 2010.  

Imagine a religious movement that makes geographic maps of where demons reside and claims among its adherents the Republican Party’s most recent vice presidential nominee and whose leaders have presided over prayer sessions (one aimed at putting the kibosh on health-care reform) with a host of leading GOP figures.

It’s a movement whose followers played a significant role in the battle over Proposition 8, California’s anti-same-sex marriage initiative, and Uganda’s infamous proposed Anti-Homosexuality Law, more commonly associated with the Family, a religious network of elites drawn from the ranks of business and government throughout the world. But the movement we’re imagining encompasses the humble and the elite alike, supporting a network of “prayer warriors” in all 50 states, within the ranks of the U.S. military, and at the far reaches of the globe — all guided by an entire genre of books, texts, videos and other media.

Imagine that, and you’ve just dreamed up the New Apostolic Reformation, the largest religious movement you’ve never heard of. Continue reading
