Sharron Angle - Government is idolatry!
From Crooks & Liars:
Nevada scribe Jon Ralston captured these rather explicit comments made by senate candidate Sharron Angle from an interview back in April with TruNews Christian Radio's Rick Wiles. The audio and transcript is from that link.
Angle tends to be even less-guarded when she does interviews with Christian media (if that's possible), especialy about her faith and the role it plays in her politics. As she makes plain here, her faith is her politics. Government is a false idol to be resisted. Democrats are against the First Commandment.
"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."
As Ralston writes: "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 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."
