GetReligion.org offered me kind words for pointing out that when Palin’s religion came up in the ABC interview, Charlie Gibson was wrong and Sarah Palin was right.Good press watchdog that he is, Terry Mattingly has challenged ABC and AP to issue a correction. I agree. Terry, the driving force behind GetReligion, also challenged me to provide the evidence for my suggestion that there are other Palin faith-related issues that do put Palin on thin ice, if such a thing exists in Alaska.Fair question. The most troubling comment was her claim that it was God’s will that a natural gas pipeline get built. Let’s go to the videotape:Here’s the transcript:

“I can do my part in doing things like working really, really to get a natural gas pipeline. It’s about a $30 billion project that’s going tol create a lot of jobs for Alaskans and we’ll have a lot of energy flowing through there. And pray about that also. I think God’s will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas pipeline built. So pray for that.”
