The Greek word for soul in the N.T. is psyche, I believe. A soul assumes the ability to think, and in mainstream Christian theology is a function of our corporeal existance (for instance, "souls" don't go to heaven until judgement day, when the dead rise from their graves, body and all). It can be argued that, if a soul exists at all, then it must exist for all self-aware entities with physical manifestations.

Considering this is the first time I've ever heard of the Iowa Freedom Summit, and having been linked to it, still do not know what it is, I am not going to accept this as evidence of some mainstream republican demand for Palin as a presidential candidate. She's got a tiny cult of personality, but no draw outside of it.
