Katherine Harris: Bill Nelson doesn't act like a Christian

Friday, October 06, 2006

You know, she's the gift that just keeps on giving. U.S. Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) shouldn't lose any sleep over this unhinged, batsh*t crazy opponent.
Six weeks after urging voters to elect only "tried and true" Christians, Senate candidate Katherine Harris is questioning her opponent's faith by saying he "votes completely contrary" to Christian principles.

In an interview published by a Christian news service, Harris said incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson "claims to be a Christian" but supports policies "completely contrary to what we say we believe."

In the item, Harris did not identify specific policies, but she has blasted Nelson for supporting abortion rights and for opposing a proposed constitutional amendment that would have outlawed gay marriage.

...In late August, she angered some Christians and non-Christians with comments she made to the Florida Baptist Witness, the weekly journal of the Florida Baptist State Convention.

Harris said that God did not intend for the United States to be a "nation of secular laws" and that failure to elect "tried and true" Christians would allow lawmakers "to legislate sin."

She also said "God is the one who chooses our rulers" and suggested non-Christians "don't know better."
