God Wants President Obama Impeached?


At the Western Conservative Summit over a week ago, Sarah Palin claimed that God wants President Obama impeached.

“This president’s forgotten man is we the people, and we the people know that our best days are still ahead because we know that God shed his grace”, Palin said at the Western Conservative Summit. “He’s given us our freedom to do what’s right. God doesn’t drive parked cars. I think he expects us to get up and take action in order to defend these freedoms that are God given. I think it’s an affront to God to let this go on because he gave us these freedoms. We’re not going to let someone, a person, a party take them from us. We’re not going to dethrone God and substitute him with someone who wants to play God.” [1][2]


Palin talking about not dethroning God is reminiscent of Romans 13:1-7. “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.” [3]


However, the U.S constitution says that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof …’ and Article VI specifies that no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” In other words, don’t get God involved into politics. [4]


While Sarah Palin doesn’t specifically say that “God wants Obama impeached”, her speech heavily implies it. Here are some other things that Sarah Plain said at the summit that may be of some importance. “Right now we’re drifting.The country is rudderless. And the Captain he’s saying ‘I’m going it alone.’ Well shipmates then it’s our responsibility to use the tools in the toolbox to hold him accountable, to send that message, we won’t put up with the lawlessness. That’s why we have to influence Congress on this.” [2]
