how i hope this country has learned from our mistakes

all elections are important. but this one coming up is monumental. it's the country's chance to make a stand against religious zealots. and i'm not just talking about the ones that are trying to destroy our country.

i'm talking about the ones running our country.

we've become our enemy.

here's katharine harris. she's running for the senate. and she's also the person responsible for the avalanche of events that began six years ago. her comments prove that she's no better than anyone in the middle east.

MIAMI, Florida (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris told a religious journal that separation of church and state is "a lie" and God and the nation's founding fathers did not intend the country be "a nation of secular laws."

The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate also said that if Christians are not elected, politicians will "legislate sin," including abortion and gay marriage.

Harris made the comments -- which she clarified Saturday -- in the Florida Baptist Witness, the weekly journal of the Florida Baptist State Convention, which interviewed political candidates and asked them about religion and their positions on issues.

Separation of church and state is "a lie we have been told," Harris said in the interview, published Thursday, saying separating religion and politics is "wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers.

"If you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin," Harris said."

like i said, this is of monumental importance.
