Sarah Palin on Media Treatment of Her Personal Faith in Hugh Hewitt Interview

September 30, 2008

I think that there's a lot of mocking of my personal faith, and my personal faith is very, very simple. I don't belong to any church. I do have a strong belief in God, and I believe that I'm a heck of a lot better off putting my life in God's hands, and saying, “Hey, you know, guide me.” What else do we have but guidance that we would seek from a Creator? That's about as simple as it gets with my faith, and I think that there is a lot of mocking of that. […] I do have respect for those who have differing views than I do on faith, on religion. I'm not going to mock them, and I would hope that they would […] give me the same courtesy through this of not mocking a person's faith, but maybe perhaps even trying to understand a little bit of it.
