In the ABC interview, Palin was asked about a comment she made in her former church that “our national leaders are sending U.S. soldiers on a task that is from God” and whether she thought the United States was fighting a holy war.
Palin said “I would never presume to know God’s will or to speak God’s words.”
And she said she did not know whether her Iraq-bound son was on a mission from God.
“What I know is that my son has made a decision,” she said. “I am so proud of his independent and strong decision he has made, what he decided to do and serving for the right reasons and serving something greater than himself and not choosing a real easy path where he could be more comfortable and certainly safer.”
Palin went on to explain the the controversial comment, paraphrasing Abraham Lincoln, that in War, or any other time, we should not pray that God is on “our side” we should pray that we are on his side.
The entire interview will be broadcast by ABC on Friday at 10 PM.
