Does Katherine Harris' Christianity Support a Republic?

"Rep. Katherine Harris (R-Fla.) said this week that God did not intend for the United States to be a "nation of secular laws" and that the separation of church and state is a "lie we have been told" to keep religious people out of politics."If you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin," Harris told interviewers from the Florida Baptist Witness."


It seems that Katherine Harris Spent some time at Francis Schaeffer's L’Abri in Switzerland. I have done a cursory look for info on him. I should stress the word, 'cursory'. I've not read his writing nor delved very deeply.

Schaeffer was indeed the father of the current culture wars; believing that Christians must go and dominate and take over society.

He was basically anti-democracy, anti-pluralistic society, and anti-immigration. I'm not talking about the current immigration controversy over our borders but rather immigration in the larger sense. All immigration. The anti-immigration stance basically came from the fact that he wanted everything converted to Christian. And not just any old Christian, but HIS brand of Christianity.

It seems to me a sort of pre-Apocalyptic method of "Leaving Behind", i.e. anyone who does not subscribe to our tenets really has no place in society.

From Wikipedia: "In A Christian Manifesto, Schaeffer's argument is simple. The United States began as a nation rooted in Biblical principles. But as society became more pluralistic, with each new wave of immigrants, proponents of a new philosophy of secular humanism gradually came to dominate debate on policy issues. Since humanists place human progress, not God, at the center of their considerations, they pushed American culture in all manner of ungodly directions, the most visible results of which included legalized abortion and the secularization of the public schools. At the end of A Christian Manifesto, Schaeffer calls for Christians to use civil disobedience to restore Biblical morality."
