God's Own Party ?
At one time they claimed to have Him in their corner. But the signs are clear. He has had it with being used by bigoted Christians. A day before the midterm elections, in the flood tide of negative advertisements and smear campaigns, this one stands out as an example of utter crassness. Now we have pre-election "telephone prayer service" ! That is pushing bad taste to new heights.
- From The Tampa Tribune
- TAMPA - U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris, who has made past comments that raised questions about her religious sensitivity, prayed in a telephone prayer service recently that God would "bring the hearts and minds of our Jewish brothers and sisters into alignment."
- A Harris spokeswoman said Friday that the Longboat Key Republican, who has advocated electing Christian officeholders, was talking about converting Jews to vote Republican, not to Christianity.
- In a conference call prayer service sponsored by a religious conservative group on Oct. 3, Harris expressed the belief that Florida will lead the nation in a spiritual reawakening. She said that will include changes in government, including prayer in schools and changes in tax regulations on churches and charities.
- "We just decree and declare there will be a shift for this nation, that there will be an enormous revival, even a revolution as we speak," she prayed. "Once again, we'll rejoice, rejoice with your Son and bring this nation into alignment with your government with your kingdom principles and authority."
I hear someone barfing; must be Him.
