Katherine Harris's reality

Wow. Well, this one's special.

AMERICAblog linked to this article about Katherine Harris's recent comments. Okay, so I knew she called the separation of Church and State a "fallacy," but I didn't know that she took it a step further:

"If you are not electing Christians, tried and true, under public scrutiny and pressure, if you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin," she told interviewers, citing abortion and gay marriage as two examples of that sin.

"Whenever we legislate sin," she said, "and we say abortion is permissible and we say gay unions are permissible, then average citizens who are not Christians, because they don't know better, we are leading them astray and it's wrong . . ."

Harris also said the separation of church and state is a "lie we have been told" to keep religious people out of politics.

Has this been on the regular cable news much? I'm surprised (or maybe not...) it hasn't been. This sort of behavior is unbelievable.
