A note of warning

The reign of Captain Codpiece has shown us that the "wall of separation" between church and state in America is crumbling. (After all God told him to invade Iraq didn't She?) Another taste of this comes in the form of this story from the Salt Lake City Tribune that former Utah governor Mike Leavitt overtly discussed injecting Mormon theology into his governance of the Beehive State.

To me this is not about Mormonism or Christianity but a warning that any candidate for high office who takes his religion to seriously, who considers his obligations to his church or his God(s) greater than those of the electorate he serves, must be considered a danger to American democracy.

You have been warned!
