GOP Candidates Play the 'God Card'

July 20, 2010

Ethics Daily ran my latest article today, which is entitled "GOP Candidates Play the 'God Card.'" It covers religious claims recently offered in political campaigns in Missouri, Alabama, and Nevada.


  1. Wow, this is scary. When people are so religiously "right" that they believe no one else, no other political party, no other religion than theirs is so right - than I begin to think of the crusades, the Salem Witchcraft Trials, the burning of the heretics .... I mean, the KKK invoked the wrath of God down upon all those who opposed them. The believed the were "right" and all in the name of God.

    As a staunch Democrat and a very strong Christian I just find this wrong, so very wrong.

    It seems they leave out the love, the compassion, ... I only see lightening bolts flashing around all those they oppose.

    I'd also like to know - when did Salvation and political affiliation start to go hand in hand? On Republicans are the truly saved?

    Wrong, so wrong. My God is not affiliated with any political party.
