It seems that God has been speaking mostly to Republicans when it comes to the call to serve in public office. Sharron Angle who hopes to unseat Harry Reid in Nevada joins other Republicans who say God called them to serve. She says, “I believe that God has been in this from the beginning and because of that, when he has a plan and purpose for your life and you fit into that what he calls you to, he’s always equipped people.”
God, if you believe His messengers, also spoke to Sarah Palin, George Bush and Norm Coleman, calling them to public office. Why God let Al Franken win Coleman’s seat is another matter.
What other politicians or leaders have you seen claim divine endorsement? Is God a Republican after all? In the past when we mixed politics and religion, people got burned at the stake. Is that where this will lead?
