God Chooses Our Elected Officials, and By the Way, They Are Our Rulers

Katherine Harris told the Florida Baptist Witness that "God chooses our rulers."

In a lengthy interview with Florida Baptist Witness, struggling U.S. Senate candidate Katherine Harris asserts, among other things, that the separation of church and state is a fallacy.

"We have to have the faithful in government and over time," the Witness quotes Harris as saying, "that lie we have been told, the separation of church and state, people have internalized, thinking that they needed to avoid politics and that is so wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers."

I don't know what is more disturbing about that quote -- the part about God choosing our rulers, or that she thinks of them as "rulers."
