Katherine Harris: Separation of church and state is "a lie"


Katherine Harris must be desperate for publicity, and she must not be too concerned about what kind of publicity she gets. Her latest harebrained ploy: telling a religious journal that separation of church and state is "a lie we have been told," that separating religion and politics is "wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers," that God and the founding fathers did not intend America to be "a nation of secular laws," and that "if you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin."

How did fellow Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Florida), who is Jewish, feel about Harris' remarks? "Disgusted," she told the Orlando Sentinel.

But Wasserman's disgust is completely unfounded, because Harris was "speaking to a Christian audience, addressing a common misperception that people of faith should not be actively involved in government," according to a statement from her campaign. Also, her comments reflected "her deep grounding in Judeo-Christian values," the statement said, adding that Harris had previously supported pro-Israel legislation and legislation recognizing the Holocaust.

Hey, wouldn't Katherine Harris and Mel Gibson make a cute couple?

ARGH! Nothing gets my blood boiling more .

Religion has no place in any government. I want my rulers to make informed, independant decisions, not act like they are performing "God's Will"

Who is to say what God wants? Who is to say that there even is a god. For atheists, these people are just making fools of themselves. If Hurricane Katrina was the work of God, who is responsible for the beautiful sunny summer us in San Diego has had?

I truly believe that people of faith belong nowhere in the government. The Middle Ages are over. We will never move ahead as a society so long as we keep our primitive traditions in such high regard.

Hello Editor at Large,

Hope this is not too off topic for you. It gets to the root of the problem of deluded and greedy politicians who seek to impose their own ignorance on millions of others. Because of our reliance on money, politics, and religion, we are teetering on the verge of world-wide disaster. Idiots like Ms. Harris could care less about everyone else as long as she gets her hands on wealth and power, even if it means pretending to serve the Creator. It is long past time that people stand up for truth and justice and give these scoundrels their due.

Understanding the Fatal Flaws in Judeo-Christian-Islamic Prophecy

I pose to you and others that the context and meaning of these ancient texts have been lost on those confused by the assertions of religious leaders and founders. Ancient wisdom has been purposely recast and obfuscated into religion and mysticism. Consequently, the interpretations presented about the sources and meaning of these texts and the philosophy and cosmology of ancient Hebrew sages is completely wrong. Before you scoff and write me off, you should understand that I speak from personal experience...

Remember the saying that "the truth will set you (and others) free?" How does "opening one's eyes to the truth" relate to "making the blind see again" or "shining the light" or "illuminating a subject?" Notice the inherent symbolism associated with this supposed New Testament "miracle?"

Did you ever consider that Christianity is the False Prophet symbolized in the Apocalypse, that Rome (Vatican/Papacy) is the so-called anti-messiah, and Jesus Christ is the false messiah? I have produced stunning and comprehensive proof that this is the true interpretation of pivotal prophecies long confounded by Christianity's founders and leaders. Recasting the symbolism of earlier Hebrew texts as literal events in the New Testament is one of the central deceptions associated with Christianity.

As certain world leaders strive to instigate a fabricated "battle of Armageddon," it is vital to understand and spread the truth about these ancient texts to help bring about an end to such abominable evil. You can never expect philosophies based on lies and great error to lead to peace and harmony. How many more millennia of terrible proof is necessary before humanity finally gets a clue that most have been utterly deceived by the very concept of religion.

Without it, Bush, the Neo-Cons, and their cohorts could never have gained and retained political power by manipulating an already deluded and susceptible constituency. Likewise, their thinly veiled partners in crime, Bin Laden and his ilk, could never have succeeded in their roles in this centuries-old Vatican-led grand deception.

Have you ever heard of Machiavelli? What better way to hide the truth than to divide people among three related but divergent religions (or other strong delusions) that each obscure the truth while claiming that each is the truth?

Want to see the symbol for the tri-part endless loop and logic-trap that such a three-part Machiavellian delusion forms? Ever seen a Triquetra?

Now consider how money, religion, and politics are inseparable because of the inescapable trap (bottomless pit) they form...

We are all trapped by a web of deception formed by money, religion, and politics. The great evils that bedevil us all will never cease until humanity finally awakens, shakes off these strong delusions, and forges a new path to the future.

Here is Wisdom...

Peace...

No no. You're missing the point. It's a brilliant campaign strategy. All the Christians will love her and vote for her. We know there aren’t many non-Christians in Florida. I mean, it’s not like there are many Jewish people there right?

Oh …. hold on ….. I’d better call her campaign manager with some figures for the demographics of Florida. I’ll be right back.

Darn it! Who was the idiot that said that everyone living in Florida where Christians!!! …. Oh shoot! Is the microphone still on?

Exigent: Religion is the most divisive force on Earth. Zealots like Harris believe they can solve the world's problems with religion - when in fact, the opposite is true.

Seven Star: Excellent points. "You can never expect philosophies based on lies and great error to lead to peace and harmony." "Money, religion, and politics are inseparable because of the inescapable trap (bottomless pit) they form." We definitely need to forge a new path to the future - one that forsakes money, religion, and politics.

Waggle: It is incredible that Harris would forget who her constituents are. Despite her apparent lack of sense, she seems to sense, at least, that she's on the precipice of a nosedive.
