Sharron Angle may have just created a new cottage industry: 1st Commandment lawyers:
"I know people are very frightened about what's going on in this country," Angle said in an interview that originally aired on April 21 with TruNews Christian Radio's Rick Wile. "And these programs that you mentioned -- that Obama has going with Reid and Pelosi pushing them forward -- are all entitlement programs built to make government our God. And that's really what's happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment. We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We're supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government. And you've just identified the real crux of the problem."
OK, now I'm very, very confused. I thought the Tea Party was all about fighting for individual rights in the face of ever-growing government control. Instead, here's Angle telling me the problem is that government is telling people what to do -- when it should be God telling people what to do instead. That's completely different.
Meanwhile, I hear that Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani are leading a push to repeal or at least amend the 7th Commandment.
