Lynda Wonderful Woman Carter

Gorgeous actress and cabaret performer, Lynda Carter, AKA Wonder Woman, spoke her mind about Gov. Sarah Palin in an interview recently.
Question. I'm sure you've seen all the comparisons in the media and among Republicans of Sarah Palin to Wonder Woman. How do you feel about that?

Lynda Carter.
Don’t get me started. She’s the anti-Wonder Woman. She’s judgmental and dictatorial, telling people how they’ve got to live their lives. And a superior religious self-righteousness ... that’s just not what Wonder Woman is about. Hillary Clinton is a lot more like Wonder Woman than Mrs. Palin. She did it all, didn’t she?

No one has the right to dictate, particularly in this country, to force your own personal views upon the populace — religious views. I think that is suppressive, oppressive, and anti-American. We are the loyal opposition. That’s the whole point of this country: freedom of speech, personal rights, personal freedom. Nor would Wonder Woman be the person to tell people how to live their lives. Worry about your own life! Worry about your own family! Don't be telling me what I want to do with mine.

I like John McCain. But this woman — it's anathema to me what she stands for. I think America should be very afraid. Very afraid. Separation of church and state is the one thing the creators of the Constitution did agree on — that it wasn’t to be a religious government. People should feel free to speak their minds about religion but not dictate it or put it into law.

What I don’t understand, honestly, is how anyone can even begin to say they know the mind of God. Who do they think they are? I think that’s ridiculous. I know what God is in my life. Now I am sure that she’s not all just that. But it’s enough to me. It’s enough for me to have a visceral reaction. And it makes me mad.

People need to speak up. Doesn’t mean that I’m Godless. Doesn’t mean that I am a murderer. What I hate is this demonization of everybody but one position. You’re un-American because you’re against the war. It’s such bullshit. Fear. It’s really such a finite way of thinking about God to think that your measley little mind can know the mind of God. It’s a very little God that way. I think that God’s bigger. I don’t presume to know his mind. Or her mind.

Well said sister.
Believers believe that God is everything and that we are made in Gods image. God created a diverse humanity. I feel when we use God or religion to dehumanize, we belittle and offend God. People need to think. We all have biases but it becomes bigotry when we use it to dehumanize others.

Jackie I am surprise at the number of people who are not please with Ms. Plain. I read a article were Jamie Lee Curtis had some un-kind words to say about this chick. I like what Matt Damon said that was point on.

Jamie Lee don't play. And even Pamela Anderson piped in some unfavorable remarks about the Governor.

Even the woman who beat her in the 1984 Miss Alaska pageant was quoted recently.
