Sharron Angle is the Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Nevada. There have actually been points in the race where she has led Harry Reid in the polls. She has a gigantic following in the Republican party.
How is this possible? How could any intelligent person listen to the rantings of this highly delusional Christian and not turn away in disgust?
“When God calls you, he also equips you and he doesn’t just say ‘Well, today you’re going to run against Harry Reid.’ There is a preparation,” she said during a recent interview on the Christian Broadcasting Network. “Moses had his preparatory time. Paul had his preparatory time. Even Jesus had his preparatory time, and so my preparation began on a school board.”
She believes that an imaginary, invisible man in the sky has “called her” and then “prepared her”. Yet this same imaginary man will allow 10,000 children to die of starvation today?
She believes abortion is a violation of God’s will and should be banned in all cases.
Yet if God has a will, abortion is clearly his will because the majority of pregnancies are terminated by miscarriages in a process called spontaneous abortion.
she has said that public policy should support the “traditional” family structure as described in the Bible, in which one parent stays home with the children while the other works.
Indeed, although many Americans view the separation of church and state as one of the keys to the nation’s success as a multicultural society, Angle believes that religion has an expansive role to play in government. And, she has repeatedly said anyone who opposes that based on the claim of separation of church and state misunderstands the Constitution’s ban on “establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
In this regard, Angle’s view of religion’s role in government parallels that of a religious political movement — Christian Reconstructionism — seeking to return American civil society to biblical law.
Biblical law? If we return to Biblical law, we need to kill tens of millions of Americans, as vividly demonstrated here:
How could anyone with such absurd beliefs have any credibility?
