Sarah Palin's Nutty Pastor

Sarah Palin has her own nutty preacher, who was captured on video making some stereotypical assertions about "the Israelites."  And Sarah Palin is not only present, she comes up to the altar shortly afterward and appears before the congregation to accept the preacher's blessing.

Here's what he says at about 1:20 in the video:

The second area whereby God wants us, wants to penetrate in our society is in the economic area. The Bible says that the wealth of the wicked is stored up for the righteous. It's high time that we have top Christian businessmen, businesswomen, bankers, you know, who are men and women of integrity running the economics of our nations. That's what we are waiting for. That's part and parcel of transformation. If you look at the -- you know -- if you look at the Israelites, that's how they work. And that's how they are, even today.

Sarah Palin shows up at about 7:12 into it.
