Belief barrier: What Palin's religion could mean for the race

Journalists are still searching for Sarah Palin's religious ties to her policies, but Family Research Council President Tony Perkins doesn't see any yet.

This is a clip from a CNN interview:

Roberts: Do you have any idea at this point about how her faith will inform how she governs?

Perkins: No. There's not a lot of evidence in Alaska other than, you know, she's conservative. I mean there's not – you can't point to a lot of policies that people say [she adopted] because she's a conservative evangelical.

Steve Waldman at Beliefnet created a list of statements Palin has made that seem to tie her faith to her policies. Waldman tries to explain which ones could be scary to those on on the left and which aren't.
