Sarah Palin and the Lamb Who Was Slain

The Onion has a pretty funny article that they just put out: Latest Sarah Palin Speech Opens Sixth Seal:

IDAHO FALLS, ID—Speaking unto an audience of anti-immigration advocates, global-warming deniers, and members of the Tea Party Nation, former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin gave forth utterances Monday that reportedly opened the sixth seal of the Book of the Apocalypse.

“Wow, it’s good to be here, just shootin’ the breeze with a bunch of real, hardworking Americans who love their freedom,” said Palin, her words echoing across the Idaho Falls Civic Auditorium as mighty tremors caused great unrest beneath the land and the sea. “So are the little guys like you and me gonna fight these Washington insiders with their big government agenda? You betcha we are!”

And lo, there was then a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair; and the moon became as blood; and “gosh” was spoken repeatedly; and the stars of heaven fell upon the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken by a mighty wind.

These disturbances reportedly went unnoticed by the audience, however, as their thunderous applause drowned out the sound of the foretold cataclysm.

As funny as this article is at the expense of the Right and Left, it should be noted that the Revelation text has the Lamb who was slain opening the sixth seal. So, despite the Onion’s notion of ‘the apocalypse’, this is actually about idolatry. Personally, I think the proper interpretation is more condemning, and interesting — who is the Lamb?

  1. Can you visualize Sarah Palin in a serrious arm negotiating session with the like of Angela Merkel saying: Betcha, Angie. And: Gosh Gordie, isn’t Ireland a part of England, so why are you fighting each other? And to Putin: Vladie, we are the little guys (about the same height,) and we should not let the rest of the world push us around, not even the USSR which I can watch from my house in Alaska!
