Separation of church and state is"a lie we have been told,"Harris said in the interview, published Thursday, saying separating religion and politics is"wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers."
"If you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin,"Harris said.
Her comments drew criticism, including some from fellow Republicans who called them offensive and not representative of the party....
Harris'campaign released a statement Saturday saying she had been"speaking to a Christian audience, addressing a common misperception that people of faith should not be actively involved in government."
Well, separation of church and state is a lie, God is involved in choosing our leaders and legislation has quite a bit to do with morality. I can't say I'm too disturbed with what she said.
Harris is running for the US Senate in Florida, and is most well-known for her role in the Bush-Gore recount in 2000.
