Rep. Zach Wamp made his message clear with few words: If you are not a
Christian, you lack the moral fiber necessary to defend your freedoms.
In a gubernatorial election that has seen many references to scripture
and appeals to religion, Wamp furthered the tone of
religious exclusivity with his July 4 visit to Higher Ground Baptist
Church in Kingsport, TN.

The truly worrisome thing is that if he DOESN'T truly believe these things, then he can only be blatantly soliciting votes from the pulpit, the most egregious mixture of church and state. I really hope he doesn't become my next governor.

I just finished watching the video of Wamp's 'sermon' on YouTube. It truly worries me that a person with such a closed view of the world could be a Congressman. It could just be that Wamp is working the crowd for votes, but I've seen too many people spout the same type of message in TN that truly believe their views are the only correct views (all others be damned, literally). I agree with Carol's comment on the blog, "Staggering arrogance. That he believes ONLY fundamentalist Christians are suitable for public office is downright scary." It's scary because that kind of arrogance breeds extremism.
