Sharron Angle: Obama Administration Violates First Commandment Against ‘Idolatry’
August 4, 2010
(ChattahBox)—Sharron Angle, teapartier, right-wing extremist and fanatical fundamentalist Christian is a frightening figure in American politics. She is challenging Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) for his senate seat in Nevada, a seat that was a sure Republican pick-up, until Angle’s fringe extremism scared a number of her constituents away. Yesterday, we reported on her bizarre interview with Fox News, wherein she explained her campaign’s strategy to manipulate her press coverage. “We needed to have the press be our friend,” and “ask the questions we want to answer,” she said, before she launched into an appeal for viewers to send cash.
So, What has Sharron Angle said now? Today, an earlier talk radio interview has surfaced, in which she suggested support for a theocracy based on biblical principles. And she made the most bizarre statements, yet. She claimed that the Obama administration’s entitlement programs, are “violating the first Commandment,” by forcing Americans to worship a false god. This is just pure religious fanaticism at its worst. And the frightening part, is that she is only trailing Harry Reid by a few points leading into the November elections.
The audio tape and transcript of Angle’s interview were obtained by Jon Ralston of the Las Vegas Sun. She made her kooky remarks during an April appearance on TruNews Christian Radio with Rick Wiles. She claims that the Democratic agenda of President Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Reid violates the first Commandment from God. And Americans participating in entitlement programs are therefore guilty of worshiping a false god:
“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.”
Angle, who has previously declared that God commanded her to run for office, also spoke of a a holy war against the secular government:
“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,” she said.
This mind set is truly bizarre. And remember, Sharron Angle is the Republican nominee for a seat in the U.S. Senate.
