"… there is no such thing as nothing."

A: Gingrich, Bachmann, Santorum, Perry Q: Who’ll be crowned religious king, or queen of Iowa?

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Sunday, December 18, 2011

“We have determined that Michele Bachmann is Biblically qualified to be the president, to be a leader. She is capable. She is trustworthy. She fears God and she hates dishonest gain.”
Danny Carroll, former Iowa State Representative, former board member, now lobbyist for The Family Leader at the Iowa statehouse

There you have it folks.

First, we have Constitutional qualification, party qualification, then Biblical qualification.

But here’s the odd part – at least the part some folks seem to conveniently forget (or neglect, take your pick) – is that Article VI, paragraph 3 of the United States Constitution specifically states that

no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

Well, the religious qualification goes right out the window.

Those pesky Founding Fathers!
