In a country that doesn't (officially) recognize state-sponsored religion, whose Constitution says "all men are created equal," where bigotry and bias are abhorred — why do otherwise intelligent and sensitive people feel they can engage in hate speech against gay people?

When All Else Fails, Play The God Card

Listen — I don't know what Katherine Harris feels about gay people. So, perhaps bringing her up is outside the purview of GAYMAFIOSO. I link to this article, though, to make a simple point: If this is all a candidate has to do — utter the word "God" and say He is ordaining his or her campaign — to garner standing ovations and probably a supportive vote from some Christians, they more than deserve the politicians they elect (and susequently relinquish their prerogative to cry "foul" later when said candidates don't deliver measures "Christian" enough for them.)

See: Bible — Section on "Wolves in sheep's clothing."

Harris Tells Christian Group She Believes God Wants Her In Public Service

FORT LAUDERDALE — Finding inspiration from God,
The Last of the Mohicans and The Lord of Rings, Katherine Harris told hundreds of conservative Christians Saturday she is "a work in progress."

Harris, who told a national television audience Wednesday she would be spending $10 million to win Florida's U.S. Senate race, said she never would have entered politics if she did not believe that God wanted her to make public service part of her life.

The Sarasota-area congresswoman's campaign for the senate has been in a free fall. She has struggled to raise money, and nearly all her top campaign advisers have left. Several tried to persuade the 48-year-old Republican to quit the race, saying she had no chance of winning.

But during an appearance on Fox News Channel's
Hannity and Colmes, Harris said she will not end her campaign and will instead spend "my legacy from my father" and "everything I have."

More than 800 conservative Christians were attending a two-day annual conference called Reclaiming America for Christ at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale. Harris received a standing ovation when she arrived at the pulpit.

She told the crowd that she studied under Francis Schaeffer in Geneva, Switzerland. Schaeffer is considered a founder of the modern evangelical movement, which encourages advocating Christian beliefs in public life. Schaeffer, in his book
A Christian Manifesto, called for Christian activists to demand "biblical morality" in government affairs.

…The two-term congresswoman is best known for her role in the 2000 presidential election when, as Florida secretary of state, she was called upon to make rulings over disputed ballots. Democrats said she helped President Bush win the election by not interpreting Florida law correctly.

…"Everything is possible with God," said Harris, who never directly mentioned her Senate campaign.
