Less than 24 hours after shetried to patch things over with Jewish Floridians due to her “if you don’t elect Christians you are legislating sin” remarks Katherine Harrisreturns to her fundamentalist Crusade.
Congresswoman Katherine Harris took her uphill Senate battle to a tiny Avenue Q church on Thursday, carrying a leather-bound Bible and praying with a group of six dozen ministers, community leaders and educators.
Harris, Republican U.S. Senate candidate, asked the group to consider how biblical figures would feel to know modern politics keep religion and government separate.
“There are no Ten Commandments in our halls of Congress,” Harris said.
“It’s time that we re-take America,” Harris continued. “This is our challenge.”
Between prayers, Harris told the group she was party to a recent prayerful conference call where three issues were targeted for their importance at the national level: children, immigration and the economy.
“There are spiritual solutions to all of those,” Harris said.
Harris made the scheduled Treasure Coast stop the day after a Quinnipiac University poll shows her trailing incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson by 28 points.
