“Political and social forces are trying to run God out of the public sphere.”
— Ohio Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Ken Blackwell, January 17 2006
It’s a funny thing, but I’d always thought that the God of the Christians was an omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent deity. Always present, all-seeing, and all-powerful. If an observant, all-powerful God really wanted Christianity to be the central legal principle of American Government, then He surely could make it so in a moment.
But Blackwell’s God is a wimp, a wilting flower, a poor baby so weak that he — the creator and governor of bazillions of cubic light years of universe — can be driven out of the American public square by a few cranky liberals.
Ken Blackwell must truly hate God to infantilize Him so.
