"Christian Identity" is a sect closely associated with the KKK, Aryan Nation, and other white supremacist groups. They're not your average Christians.

Why not lump Christians together, if we're doing it to Muslims?

Hahaha...on a related note re: her new word:

Quote:
Refudiate: (verb) a word Sarah Palin just coined on Twitter.

Meaning: something "peaceful muslims" should "pls" do.

Use in a sentence: "Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn’t it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate."

Country of Origin: Unclear, but you can see Russia.

~snip~

Maybe she'll prove me wrong and "refudiate" will catch on. But if she runs in 2012, I hope we’re horpswangling enough to grountify her. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.

She "corrected" herself later by changing it to "refute". Which is a difficult thing to do to a building.

So she, herself, did not know she might have meant:

re·pu·di·ate/riˈpyo͞odēˌāt/Verb
1. Refuse to accept or be associated with.

Its just too silly and shows an impressive narrow mindedness to agree with Palins assessment. Shes an idiot.

She wasn't talking to a building she was talking to moderate muslims . . . not that it really matters. (see below)

Which proves you can only trust naked people. Maybe Spencer Tunick knows more than all of us? Many with clothes get hateful when Tunick advocated nakedness.

Now if Palin would just take her clothes off.

And asking them to refudiate and/or refute the building.
