Do you know what the top ten abuses of religion in politics during the 2006 campaign season are? The Interfaith Alliance has released the list, and it's impressive. And shocking. I don't understand what part of our founding documents aren't clear about the separation of church and state. The Interfaith Alliance's President, Rev. Welton Gaddy said, "This year has been one of the worst on record for the abuse of religion in politics. We have a lot of work to do before 2008." Yes, yes we do. Read 'em and weep.
I'd love to know which one of these my readers find to be the most egregious. I thought the politican with the ten commandments on the back of his business card to be quite amusing. But then again, I just about spit up when I read this pastor's quote: "Sound an alarm. A Holy Ghost invasion is taking place. Man your battle stations, ready your weapons, lock and load."
