On God and Government, again

You'd have thought that after Dubbya's flirtation with God and government, and its disastrous consequences, that he would have toned it down, at least slightly; which he did, with the slogans, anyway. Still, that doesn't mean that others have to.

A great source of amusement for the Sporkist can be found in this woman's philosophy. US Rep. candidate for Senate (Florida) Katherine Harris sincerely believes that if Christians are not elected to office, politicians shall legislate 'sin'. Wow. Staggering stuff, really. Have a munch at some of her more priceless gems:

  • "If we are the ones not actively involved in electing those godly men and women and if people aren’t involved in helping godly men in getting elected than we’re going to have a nation of secular laws. That’s not what our founding fathers intended and that’s certainly isn’t what God intended."
  • "Civil rights have to do with individual rights and I don’t think they apply to the gay issues."
  • "[W]henever we legislate sin and say abortion is permissible and we say gay unions are permissible, then average citizens who are not Christians, because they don’t know better, we are leading them astray and it’s wrong…"
  • "You know we’re covered with, our sins are covered with His blood and so we are blameless before Him. We are as white as snow." [In response to allegations of cheating in previous elections.]

I can't even gather up the strength to comment on this horrible mess of a human being. But, perhaps you can.

Uh...Its almost too ridiculous to believe isn't it?

I find it so incredibly disconcerting that there are actually people in this world who think like this and actually believe this shit. The fact that these maniacs are even allowed to run for office makes it that much worse. I mean even Bush & Co would have the sense not to alienate every fucking citizen who isn't a Christian when they're runnin for a fucking election.

Interesting. The woman being interviewed is clearly troubled; you would have to be if you took an anti-gay protest to a fallen gay soldier's funeral. I sort of wish that the host didn't go so crazy at her though, even though I can completely understand how frustrating such people can be. May the Beefpie help the poor individual. "God hates you" - I like that.
