Video footage of Thomas Muthee, the pastor whom Sarah Palin credits for her political success, has surfaced, documenting his prayer that the veep candidate be protected from “every form of witch craft.” Muthee’s obsession with witches correlates with his particularly unsettling brand of “spiritual warfare,” for which he claims God compelled him to travel to Kiambu, Kenya in 1989. While in Kenya, he singled out a woman, labeled her a witch, and turned the community against her. With no other options, the woman eventually fled. Though that wasn’t until after officials killed her pet because they thought it was a demon.
