Sharon Angle’s Religious War

Sharon Angle has previously called “Second Amendment remedies” to pursue the Tea Party platform, and possibly to take out Harry Reid. Another sign of her theocratic views has been found in an interview on Christian talk radio:

“And these programs that you mentioned — that Obama has going with Reid and Pelosi pushing them forward — are all entitlement programs built to make government our God. And that’s really what’s happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment. We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We’re supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government.”

This mindset will further reinforce to some that religion infuses everything Angle believes but also might explain her hostility to government programs, believing essentially they are produced by a false God. And she frames the race as one she has been praying over for some time, a war of ideologies and faith: “And I knew that all along when I started praying over a year ago over it. And this just seemed to be the battle that I needed to go to war with. And I need warriors to stand beside me. You know, this is a war of ideology, a war of thoughts and of faith. And we need people to really stand for faith and trust, not hope and change.”

Is this a political campaign or a call for a religious war. Is this call for “warriors to stand beside me” another version of her call for “Second Amendment remedies”?

I think that Sharon Angle needs to pay less attention to the Bible and First Commandment and more to the Constitution and the First Amendment.

    Far from this being an instant disqualification for office, the Tearrorists support her because she invokes bibles and guns. Having Palin and Bachmann running around is bad enough adding Angle might as well bring about the 2012 world’s end…

    Don’t worry, she won’t actually be elected. More people are beginning to realize she’s a religious nutjob. Didn’t you love her comment the other day about how she only wants the media to ask questions she wants to answer with the answers she wants to give 🙂

    Actually in a way that made sense coming from a conservative considering how Fox often treats Republicans. That is how they treat Sarah Palin, but it looks like she is even too much of a nutjob for Fox to want to be associated with her.

    Ya know, I kind of equate Jesus and the founding of the Christian religion with ‘Hope and Change”
    But of course her christianity is not like mine.
