With his latest ad, Rep. Zach Wamp wants you to remember that he is a Christian. It's not enough that he claims to have a strong conservative record behind him, you must know his personal religious views in order to make an informed decision. It is not enough that they believe what they believe, you must know what they believe and preferably also believe the same.
Wamp has already made it clear that he is a devout Southern Baptist and that he believes that to be elected to public office, one must believe that every word of the Bible is true. He even says that religious belief should permeate all public policy matters. Basically, he wants to legislate Christianity into the lives of every Tennessean. So much for personal choice and responsibility.
His latest ad again touts his Christian credentials with a pledge to help "restore America to its Judeo-Christian heritage and our constitution" starting right here in Tennessee. Perhaps Rep. Wamp has forgotten the First Amendment to the Constitution which states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." That our country was founded by predominantly Judeo-Christian men does not mean that their intent was to create a nation to mimic their religious beliefs. One of the core reasons for our founding was the freedom from religious oppression that many found in native England.
