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.
