  •  The strange thing is that, to my understanding, (5+ / 0-)

    Fundies do not believe in Purgatory and consider it a Roman Catholic fiction.

    However, I think Sarah was baptized a Catholic and got into the Fundie thing later on.

    But what the relevance of Purgatory is to a discussion of the minimum wage is a bit beyond my grasp.

    •  That was before she was (4+ / 0-)

      baptized in the Holy Ghost by a Kenyan witch doctor who laid his hands on her on the altar at some holy-roller church in Wasilla, the meth capital of Alaska.

      The video's on YouTube, I believe. It's for real, although it looks like something along the lines of 'I Love Lucy' meets 'The Exorcist.'

      of purgatory, believing the afterlife depends on a straight up or down vote.
      Given what little sense I can make of her point, I think Palin might have meant to say either hell, as one poster suggested, or limbo.
      Her super-conservative fans might think hell was too shocking a word for a Christian lady to use.
      As for limbo, I'm sure Palin knows it in the terpsichorean rather than theological sense.
      Bingo! Use of purgatory to represent the endless punishment liberals would like to inflict on people who dare to like fast food enough to want to work serving it.
      Rather than the ultimately redemptive place of punishment it is in RC theology.
