Katherine Harris Is An Idjit

Ok, so that’s not the most brilliant of insights, but I mean, really, what else can one say after this:

MIAMI, Florida (AP) — U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris told a religious journal that separation of church and state is “a lie” and God and the nation’s founding fathers did not intend the country be “a nation of secular laws.”
The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate also said that if Christians are not elected, politicians will “legislate sin,” including abortion and gay marriage.
Harris made the comments — which she clarified Saturday — in the Florida Baptist Witness, the weekly journal of the Florida Baptist State Convention, which interviewed political candidates and asked them about religion and their positions on issues.
Separation of church and state is “a lie we have been told,” Harris said in the interview, published Thursday, saying separating religion and politics is “wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers.”

God does not choose our leaders; he gives us the free will to choose them for ourselves, for better or worse, and to render unto our Caesers what is theirs. Christians are in their core just as sinful as non-christians; our hope lies in confessing our sins and in Christ’s salvation. The Founding fathers, whatever their spiritual views, most certainly did intend our nation to ruled by secular laws. The laws may or may not be based on moral precepts from christian scripture, but they most certainly are meant to be applied across the board without regard to the religion (or lack thereof) of the citizenry.
I wonder how many dimpled chads we’d find between her ears?

    No wonder the Republicans all wanted her to go away. Personally, I think she’s as bright as a burnt out lightbulb

    Yup. Faaaaaaan-tastic. And the next time that a candidate comes along talking about morality and politics, how fast does Harris’ name come up? How much harder a job has she made for principled office-seekers?

    Exactly, ‘Fly.

    As a Floridian, I sincerely hope she loses.
