Sister Sarah's biggest applause line was when she said she would use torture to forcibly convert Muslims to Christianity.
If I were in charge they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists. ~ Sarah Palin, 2014Lots of people, even Republicans, have written about it mostly shuddering in horror at how close we came to having that crazy bitch as Vice-President. I share the sentiment. Sister Sarah is one of the leaders of the Shove-Christianity-Down-Our-Throats wing of the Republican Party so her bringing up one of the darker practices of the Christian faith is a little chilling.
The Portuguese in their India possessions used torture to forcibly convert Hindus to the Catholic faith into the 19th century. The forcible conversion of Native American children into Christians continued into the 20th century in government sponsored boarding schools' children who refused baptism were beaten.
I shudder to think if Sister Sarah, or anyone like her, were ever to be in charge.
