Harris: Separation of church and state 'a lie'

In a lengthy interview with Florida Baptist Witness, struggling U.S. Senate candidate Katherine Harris asserts, among other things, that the separation of church and state is a fallacy.

"We have to have the faithful in government and over time," the Witness quotes Harris as saying, "that lie we have been told, the separation of church and state, people have internalized, thinking that they needed to avoid politics and that is so wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers."

I don't know about anybody else, but MY rulers are chosen by a large, glowing eel, named Hyacinth, who generally floats around in the air somewhere at or around eye-level and within whistling distance, and collects Victorian-era train schedules. Which is all as it should be. As far as I'm concerned.
