Hypocrisy, Politics, Religion: Vote for Jesus or Vote for Sin

Ok, I don't usually follow the frolics of Katherine Harris, but when she says stupid stuff like this, I have to call her on her complete and utter hypocrisy.
"The Bible says we are to be salt and light. And salt and light means not just in the church and not just as a teacher or as a pastor or a banker or a lawyer, but in government and we have to have elected officials in government and we have to have the faithful in government and over time, that lie we have been told, the separation of church and state, people have internalized, thinking that they needed to avoid politics and that is so wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers."

"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."
Oh, so separation of church and state is a lie. Hmmm. And we condone sin if we don't vote fr a christian? Well, now, Katherine has backed off on these statements. Funny, though, she claims she has always professed tolerance and understanding for other faiths.
"My comments were specifically directed toward a Christian group."

"My rallying cry," she said, "has always been people of all faiths should be involved."
Wait a minute . . that has "always been" your rallying cry? Didn't you just tell a bunch of baptists something different? Hello? HYPOCRISY!

Here's another ignorant statement from Ms. Harris.

"And 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.

Katherine, dear . . you need to go back to school and learn history. That is EXACTLY what our founding fathers intended. Remember? They fled a nation where one religious ideology was thrust upon society. They came to America to create a new world where the government could not meddle in the affairs of relgion and people were free to believe what they want.

Note about the photo. Katherine, you look fabulous in this picture. Out of respect for you as a fellow human being, I did not grab one of the many many horrible photos of you that exist in cyberspace. You're welcome.

Wow! Katherine looks more like an aged Playboy playmate or television orange juice sales person (think Anita Bryant years back) than Cruella de Vil now. What a makeover! Too bad what she holds has not undergone a similar, from the ground up, revamping. Were she a true Christian, she would recall Jesus' teaching that one should give to God what is God's and to Caesar, Caesar's (the state). Separation of church and state literally goes back to Jesus himself, so I find it odd that Christians want to be so disrespectful of others that they would impose their religious views on a secular society containing many adherents of many faiths. Further, she should also be aware of existing federal laws prohibiting church leaders from advocating electing any given potential official based on that church's religious beliefs, lest they want to risk losing their tax exempt status. It is also noteworthy that most of the founding fathers were deists and not theists and knew quite well what they were doing in insisting on said separation. She is not only a hypocrite, but a dolt regarding some of the most fundamental principles that are supposed to make the U.S. the U.S. In closing, I find, however, none of this surprising, given her anti-American and anti-Democratic behavior in helping GW steal the presidential election, aided by a rubber stamp approving Republican Supreme Court that acted without precedent. These people are not moral as much as they are agenda driven bigots.
