REVELATIONS FLORIDA STYLE
Florida Representative Katherine Harris has now declared to the media that she sees – obviously through some divine means of clairvoyance – that God did not intend for the United States of America to be a “nation of secular laws” and that the idea of separation of church and state is a “lie we have been told” to keep religious people out of politics. Obviously, in Katherine’s case, this didn’t work. And just who told us these lies, Ms. Harris? Those old fuddy-duddy Fathers of Confederation? Harris warns us:
Harris has assured interviewers that her religious beliefs “animate” everything she does, including her votes in Congress. We’re fortunate that she has such a direct, clear, connection with this deity of hers, since we might otherwise entertain the possibility that Joan of Arc has been brought back to lead us. Joan, as we know heard voices in her head that were perhaps demons. Can’t be too careful about those sneaky demons, Kathy!
Harris told 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… and if we are the ones not actively involved in electing those godly men and women… we're going to have a nation of secular laws. That's not what our Founding Fathers intended, and that certainly isn't what God intended."
You see how mistaken we common folks were before Representative Harris straightened us out? I know of a whole bunch of people who erroneously believed – until her fine hand finessed the “hanging chads” fiasco that the State of Florida contributed to the next-to-last Presidential election – that our politicians were accepted or rejected solely by the voting procedure! Apparently it’s God who makes the choices!
Happily, both Democrats and Republicans in Florida are appalled by Harris’ tirade. After all, there are several degrees of crazy, and with this contribution to woo-woo, Kathy has demonstrated just how high up on the scale she is, and has managed to frighten both parties.
Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful. - Seneca
