Rep. Harris Condemns Separation of Church, State

Rep. Katherine Harris (R-Fla.) said this week that God did not intend for the United States to be a “nation of secular laws” and that the separation of church and state is a “lie we have been told” to keep religious people out of politics.

The “lie” must not be working very well since it’s almost impossible for a non-religious person to get elected these days…

“If you’re not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin,” Harris told interviewers from the Florida Baptist Witness, the weekly journal of the Florida Baptist State Convention. She cited abortion and same-sex marriage as examples of that sin.

Nevermind that many Christians are pro-choice and don’t have a problem with same-sex marriage.

Harris told the journalists “we have to have the faithful in government” because that is God’s will. Separating religion and politics is “so wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers,” she said.

… wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers — Well, that explains the contempt for democracy she demonstrated during the 2000 election…
