Bishop Muthee praying Sarah Palin at the Warsilla Church

Bishop Muthee praying Sarah Palin at the Warsilla Church

This American election should be held in Kenya. . .  that may be impossible but it is very definite that a lot of the new information oding the rounds has to do with Kenya.

Take for example this new story about A Kiambu pastor [Bishop] Thomas Muthee who prayed for Republican VP Nominee Governor Palin three years ago.

In 2005, when she was preparing to run for Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, met several times with Thomas Muthee [The kenyan Bishop]. blessed in a Wasilla, Alaska, church by Kenyan Pentecostal Bishop Thomas Muthee, who prayed for her protection from witchcraft as she prepared to seek higher office [Governor of Alaska]. Muthee is a popular figure who  often visits the U.S.

Three years later, just weeks before Sarah Palin was announced as the Republican nominee for Vice President, Palin went to her home village of Wasilla, and on stage at the Wasilla Assembly of God church, Palin said that it was the supernatural intercession of Thomas Muthee that annointed her as Governor.

Bishop Muthee’s blessing, was  a reflection of his cultural understanding of evil. While others are not obliged to accept his interpretation, all can be expected to respect it. More than that—Muthee should be hailed for asking God to shield Palin from harmful forces, however they may be manifested. And for this he is mocked and Palin ridiculed?

Perhaps of greater interest to others are the comments Muthee makes before calling Palin to the stage.

“God wants us, wants to penetrate in our society is in the economic area,” Muthee says. “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.”

When Christian believers take over and become “the top transporters in the land…the bankers,” Muthee says, “we will not have the kind of corruption that we are hearing in our society.”

Some are interpreting these comments to be a slam on Jews, the idea being that Muthee is saying believers need to take over the economy from Israelites so as to end corruption. Others believe Muthee is saying Christians should model Israelites, who put people of integrity in charge of the economy.

Your comments please.

PS. For those who dont know; Muthee comes from Kiambu – the strong hold of PNU chief Mwai Kibaki [President] while Obama comes from Siaya, the stronghold of ODM chief Raila Odinga [Prime Minister].
