Is Sharron Angle Another Phony Christian?

“I’m a Christian, and I believe that God has a plan and a purpose for each one of our lives, and that He can intercede in all kinds of situations and we need to have a little faith in many things.” Sharron Angle, The Bill Manders’ Show, 780 KOH, in January 2010.

I watched Sharron’s June 29th interview on Face to Face with Jon Ralston.

You confuse me, Sharron.

You say you’re pro life and pro death penalty. It’s pretty basic English, it’s one or the other, you can’t be both.

Sharron said: “Those who commit heinous crimes should pay the consequences, and where there is innocent life, I’ll always err on the side of innocent life.” Have you seen the spate of dna exonerations of long term inmates who were innocent all along? Don’t those innocent lives count into your definition of ‘innocent?’ Or if the courts so decide, must they die? God said: Vengeance is mine, I will repay. Who are you to usurp God's authority?

Sharron takes the position that global warming is not real. Thousands of scientists and researchers and academics have provided reams of proof that it is real, but Sharron, who may not even know what the periodic table is, says otherwise.

Sharron revised her previously stated position of eliminating Social Security into revamping it as a privatized system. And Medicaid and Medicare, and all health care for that matter, still must go. How very Christian. Yours is one of the compassionate hearts Jesus wants to people his kingdom.

She claims her role as Senator is not to create jobs, then blames Harry Reid for not creating jobs, when he actually used the stimulus to bring lots of jobs to Nevada. All that being true, Sharron is lying (not very Christian). She said “a census part time job is not a job. People want a job that has benefits, that has a future, that is something they can count on to pay their mortgage.” Immediately after that she said that she would have voted against extending unemployment benefits because it discourages people from taking low paying menial jobs, and we need to get back to work. Again, which is it?

Even after the oil disaster you want to eliminate all corporate and environmental regulations, making it still easier for the wicked ones who savage God’s creation. Surely you’ve read the Bible, where it is written of the end of the world: Revelation (11:18), And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

If you were truly Christian those words would terrify you, and you’d distance yourself from the destroyers of the earth, not enable and be a complicit partaker of their deadly sin.

So let’s recap the Angle campaign. Innocent people should die if judged guilty by the courts. Climate change needs not be addressed, it’s not real. The elderly who aren’t fortunate enough to be able to pay into the bizarro world Angle social security system will have nothing to support them in their golden years, and no health care—from a Christian society—to ease the pains of age and provide a dignified exit from this world. Even after DESTROYING the gulf, (where I happen to live and which provided my livelihood), big business should be allowed to conduct their affairs unregulated by the government. And Americans should pipe down and lick up the crumbs of the minimum wage jobs they provide.

So, Sharron, after perpetrating all these things in the last years of your life, you plan on coming to Jesus at your death and hearing him say the words: “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

You must really hate your children, and your country, if that’s the society and the planet you’d leave for them to inherit. I love Christ—you don’t sound like a Christian to me. You sound like one of the self-righteous morality enforcers who call themselves ‘Christian,' in the hope of receiving forgiveness for all your evils, and votes in November from likeminded liars.


  1. Whammer,

    Lord How I LOVE being a Nevadan.
    You can catch a glimpse of my reality here:

    Really like your blog:)

  2. She is a perfect example of Fundamentalist Christian. How else can Fundamentalist justify the wealth they aquire through the use of Christ. They twist and distort the truth of Christs message to suit their own greedy and hateful works. " Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys."

  3. Whammer,
    Why do you even enable comments if you remove them all? It is nice that they get fed to subscription before you remove them though.

  4. Angle's positions don't differ from anyone else on the so-called "Religious Right". "Compassionate Conservatism" that opposes unions, minimum wage (and even, in some cases, child labor) laws, and a mistrust of "science" and "education" (see: "home schooled") is par for the course on the Right.

    On health care, the word "hospital" come from "hospice", which were homes on the route of various religious pilgrimages that cared for travelers... many of whom were seeking "healing" from a cleric. Quickly, these hospices became known for all the sick/wounded pilgrims you always found there, and the people that lived there saw it as their religious duty to tend to the sick pilgrims. Compare that to the "fend for your self", "health care is not a right, it's a privilege" Religious Right of today.
