Has Sarah Palin spoken in tongues?

Excellent article by Doug Wead.

Has Sarah Palin spoken in tongues? « Doug Wead The Blog
The media is on the hunt and they smell a kill. Didn’t Obama’s pastor seriously damage his cause? Won’t Palin’s Pentecostalism hurt her? So why does Barack Obama still seem to be in a stupor over John McCain’s pick for Vice President? And what is the source of John McCain’s cocky smile?

Because Obama and McCain are politicians and not just your average politicians, they are among the best. The American people are getting their money’s worth in this contest. And as politicians, they know the numbers, the numbers that the media in their supreme arrogance over anything religious, always seems to disbelieve.

And here are the numbers. Beware. You are not going to believe what I am about to tell you but the references are all at the end of the blog, so hang tight and follow the numbers and the logic. John McCain did just that and it is why he is still in a race that the Democrats should have already won. And it is why Obama is looking stunned.

Here they are. According to Barna, 36% of the American public are charismatic or Pentecostal Christians. We are talking about huge numbers, probably 80 million adults.
