Schwenkler is in a tizzy because I used Gibson's "task that is from God" remark. Here's the LA Times:

Gibson went on to take a second part of her comments out of context. Palin had asked the group to pray “that there is a plan, and that plan is God’s plan.”

But Gibson dropped her reference to praying and instead quoted Palin as saying the war was God’s plan. He asked if she believed the country was sending her son on a task from God.

She is a long-time member of the Assemblies Of God. That's all you need to know.
