You make the call

The guys at the Dallas Morning News’ religion blog aren’t saying whether the Kenyan preacher with an interest in witchcraft who prayed over Sarah Palin is “a problem or not a problem.” But they have reproduced the evidence so viewers can decide for themselves. The Associated Press has also covered the story, as have the bloggers at Religion News Service and the Washington Monthly, where Steve Benen writes:

Stepping back, people will, of course, draw their own conclusions about a national candidate who is (or was) a practicing Pentecostal, attending a church where people speak in tongues, where the pastor seems preoccupied with witches. Voters’ comfort levels will vary, and I’m still inclined to think politicians’ spiritual beliefs, whether part of the mainstream or not, are a personal matter.
