"I'm a useless bit of skin wrapped around a Sun-Maid Vagina, and have no business discussing religion, ethics or morals?"
2006-08-27 01:17:50 AM  
it's rubber room time...
2006-08-27 01:17:58 AM  
And she seems like such a nice woman in the pho- oh you mean that photo. Ooops.
2006-08-27 01:26:31 AM  
Well then, I guess that makes it all better.

The comments reflected "her deep grounding in Judeo-Christian values," the statement said, adding that Harris had previously supported pro-
Israel legislation and legislation recognizing the Holocaust.

Wow she supported legislation recognizing the Holocaust! What a brave woman!

quietbs: Wow she supported legislation recognizing the Holocaust!

Can the Constitution be far behind!?

I support Israel's right to exist. I wish these farking neo-con so-called Christians would stop trying to help the cause.

Harris' campaign released a statement Saturday saying she had been "speaking to a Christian audience, addressing a common misperception that people of faith should not be actively involved in government."

Translation - "That's what I say to 'them', not what I really mean"

Thanks, sugartits.
2006-08-27 02:23:56 AM  
Hahaha.... She's my favorite nut these days.

I wonder if her staff will resign in mass again...

addressing a common misperception that people of faith should not be actively involved in government.

Be involved all you wish, but keep your beliefs out of it. Freedom of religion is only viable if there is an equally firm division from religion. If the laws are all changed so that Christians never come up against anything that runs contrary to their own dogma, then their faith becomes meaningless.

And this person, folks, is who ultimately made the call that installed Georgie.

It's a Lie?!? Really? Some should tell Thomas Jefferson, cause this is what he thought...

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man & his god, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state.

Hey Kathy... did you EVER take a civics class?

Florida deserves no less than this woman.

Gabbo is Fabbo: Florida deserves no less than this woman.

well, she should be available for a state-level position after november.

Thanks, but no thanks. You can have her.
2006-08-27 01:05:55 PM  
Seperation of church and state is essential to any true religiousity and genuine worship.

Conflation of church and state creates churches full of hypocrites who go because they have to.

But of course most politicians have no objection to flagrant hypocrisy...
2006-08-27 01:07:20 PM  
Voting should be enabled and take off every zig in all Katherine Harris threads. For great justice.

She's running for the U.S. Senate. She won't just be Florida's problem.

Bears repeating.

/hoo boy, do they deserve this woman.

The backpedaling is always so much more entertaining than the original nutty public utterance.
2006-08-27 01:55:50 PM  
What? Election rigging isn't a sin?

Those Christians sure are funny.
2006-08-27 02:04:44 PM  
The sad thing is that some ignorants actually buy it when a politician plays the religious card.

/Not religious.

When is Mel Brookes finally going to make "Jews in Space" or "Jews on Ice"?

Remember, budding politicians--if you're caught saying stupid shiat, as long as you admit you were "just pandering," it's all okay.

Does anyone believe this woman is even capable of doing an honest election recount?
2006-08-27 03:35:23 PM  
Judeo-Christian values? Now there's something I've never understood. I've known lots of Jews and lots of Christians, but I've never once met a Judeo-Christian. Does this term have any useful meaning whatsoever?
2006-08-27 04:03:18 PM  
When Bill Nelson wins with a 65% of the vote, all Democrats should send her a thank-you note.
2006-08-27 04:50:32 PM  
moops, unless she does the recount that is? :)
2006-08-27 05:52:35 PM  
So, how do her breasts feel about this whole matter?

Legislating sin should be about as useful as legislating morality.
2006-08-27 08:00:27 PM  
...I'd call her the Lieberman of the right, but she was basically spewing Robertsonian talking points...
2006-08-27 08:32:42 PM  
So basically she stands by what she says, but she made a small addendum to say that jews were sort of okay okay too. She then proves that she has always felt this way by pointing out that she is not an active holocaust denier (she supported legislation recognizing the Holocaust.)

What about anybody else who got offended? As long as they don't have a powerful lobby they can stay offended I guess.
2006-08-27 09:17:02 PM  
oh wow..another ignorant politician...

i say we elect her!

/not really

The comments reflected "her deep grounding in Judeo-Christian values"

What's "Judeo-Chrristian values"? Is that like "Vegetarian steakhouse cuisine"?
2006-08-28 05:23:48 AM  
Yup, those founding fathers had a lot to say about religion alright...

I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of...Each of those churches accuse the other of unbelief; and for my own part, I disbelieve them all."

--Thomas Paine

"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise."
"During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What have been its fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity, in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution."

-James Madison

"The clergy converted the simple teachings of Jesus into an engine for enslaving mankind and adulterated by artificial constructions into a contrivance to filch wealth and power themselves...these clergy, in fact, constitute the real Anti-Christ."

--Thomas Jefferson

I could go on, but space is limited and the attention span of the average Farker would be challenged.

Her comments drew criticism, including some from fellow Republicans who called them offensive and not representative of the party.

I don't know... sounds pretty representative of 'em to me. If you don't like it, maybe you should call yourself something else.
2006-08-28 07:20:55 AM  
She's gotta go. STraight to the looney bin. That Hannity bit, where she turns to the camera is just strange.
2006-08-28 12:51:34 PM  
Dear Baby Jeebus,

Thanks for making this Republican say something so stupid as to make herself unelecable.

2006-08-28 01:39:59 PM  

She was already unelectable before this. The Florida Republican party has already announced that they will not support her and have asked her to drop out of the race.

Someone said this earlier, but it bears repeating: who in the hell believes in the divine right of kings nowadays? I thought the civilized world stopped believing in that crap hundreds of years ago.

How this crazy woman got elected to any office is beyond me.
