Florida Baptist Witness:Republicans are in such a tight bind for Congressional races this November, that they are willing to say anything to get elected. Here is what Katherine Harris had to say to the |
"[T]he real issue is why should Baptists care [about the upcoming elections]? If you are not electing Christians, tried and true, under public scrutiny and pressure, if you’re not electing Christians then in essence you are going to legislate sin. They can legislate sin. They can say that abortion is alright. They can vote to sustain gay marriage...."
Well, that is the most outrageous, offensive and arrogant comment I have heard come out of anyone's mouth in a long time.
Isn't arrogance a sin? That didn't stop Harris from unequivocally stating that there was "No Question" that she will spend eternity with God in Heaven. What ever happened to the Christian ideal of humility?
Oh, and apparently, "G-d is the one who chooses our rulers." I guess that makes Katherine Harris G-d then, since she singlehandedly gave Bush the 2000 election in Florida.
Religious and non-religious people in Florida who believe that secular law should govern this country should stand up to this wicked witch and tell her that they no longer want this bigot to represent Florida. The establishment of religion and religious law is unconstitutional. Secular law is the only way to govern this country. That is not to say that religious law shouldn't influence our moral and societal values...but requiring one religions laws is not the way to go.
Judging by how desperate Republicans are this coming November, it is easy to predict that the time of the religious right is over. Long live America! Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.
