Katherine Harris and the Divine Right Of Kings

There she goes again. Apparently, Katherine Harris not only believes in the concept of the divine right of kings but thinks it should apply to American politics. Think I'm exaggerating? Perhaps a bit of blogger hysteria? Okay, then how would you interpret this quote?

Separating religion and politics is "so wrong because God is the
one who chooses our rulers
," Harris said. "And if we are the ones not
actively involved in electing those godly men and women," then "we’re going to
have a nation of secular laws. That’s not what our founding fathers intended and
that’s (sic) certainly isn’t what God intended."

A Voltaire quote comes to mind.

"God is a comedian playing to an audience that is afraid to laugh."
