Palin’s Church Promoting Conversion of Gays to Heterosexuals

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Gov. Sarah Palin’s church is promoting a conference that
promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through the power of prayer.

“You’ll be encouraged by the power of God’s love and His desire to transform
the lives of those impacted by homosexuality,” according to the insert in the
bulletin of the Wasilla Bible Church, where Palin has prayed for about six

Palin’s conservative Christian views have energized that part of the GOP
electorate, which was lukewarm to John McCain’s candidacy before he named her
as his vice presidential choice. She is staunchly anti-abortion, opposing
exceptions for rape and incest, and opposes gay marriage and spousal rights for
gay couples.

Mary's Minutes - Notes from the GOP Convention

Dear Friend:

On the first day of the Republican National Convention Convention politics took a
backseat to the very immediate danger of Hurricane Gustav. Convention delegates joined members of both parties and people from all across the nation in praying for the safety of those affected by the storm, particularly those Americans living along the Gulf Coast. I was truly inspired to see so many men and women putting partisan politics aside and doing the right thing for the country.

In many ways, Senator McCain embodies this spirit of cooperation and civic duty. His slogan is "country first," and it was heartwarming to see that his actions match his words. On the opening day of one of the most important events in his campaign for the presidency, John McCain ignored the politics, put aside the partisan rhetoric and flew to New Orleans.

Meanwhile, delegates were thrilled to hear from both Laura Bush and Cindy McCain, two strong women and mothers who talked about "service," and what that means to the United States. As rescue workers and first responders risked their lives to help their fellow Americans, we were all reminded of the kind of service that makes this country great.

I'll be providing daily reports from the GOP Convention, so I hope you'll return to my website to hear the latest news from Minneapolis!

God bless,

Ron Paul followers gathering for own convention

WASHINGTON (AP) _ There's no room at the Xcel Energy Center for maverick Ron Paul, so his acolytes have packed their cars, hitched rides on "Ronvoys" and will pitch tents at Ronstock '08 in defiance of next week's GOP convention in St. Paul, Minn.

Almost 9,800 tickets had been sold for the Rally for the Republic, being held in Minneapolis, which seeks to bring together activists who are anti-war, anti-government regulation, anti-immigration, anti-taxes, anti-Federal Reserve, anti-outsourcing, pro-individual liberty, pro-civil liberties and pro-Paul.

The Ronvoys _ fleets of buses and vans carrying Paul's loyalists _ were to begin arriving Saturday. A few rally-goers planned to walk from Green Bay, Wis., and join up with Paul for the final miles of their Walk4Freedom. Other attendees are driving, carpooling or flying in for the convention alternative.

Paul, a Texas congressman who failed in a bid for the Republican presidential nomination, considers the rally a celebration of traditional Republican values of limited government _ and a poke in the eye of the GOP. They don't plan to crash the Republican party, but to show they and their Campaign for Liberty are not going away.

"No matter how much our message is ignored or ridiculed, as was done in the campaign, no matter how much they did to us, it only energized our grass roots," Paul said.

The rally builds on Paul's presidential bid, in which he set a record for single-day fundraising on the Web and touched a nerve with some disaffected voters, largely in the Republican Party.
In a few Western states, Paul was a serious contender for votes, placing second ahead of Republican John McCain in Nevada and Montana. He drew 14 percent from McCain in New Mexico, a battleground state.

But Paul has no speaking role at the GOP convention. He said his staff made overtures to the party, but nothing came of its efforts.

Republican Party spokeswoman Joanna Burgos said she had to research whether Paul was invited to speak when asked about a convention role for Paul.

"Our focus is really on this side of the river," Burgos said. "We think there's enough excitement and energy on this side." McCain's campaign spokesman did not return a phone message.

Paul's faithful still hope to permeate the ranks of the establishment by winning local and state races and pulling in disenchanted party members. There are a couple dozen Paul delegates attending the GOP convention, though some loyalists say there are more delegates who support Paul.

Meanwhile, their focus is on their own political convergence in Minneapolis.
