“... I mean it just does not exist, and it does not exist in America for a purpose, because we are a Christian nation.” -- Dan Severson, the former Minnesota state rep and reportedly Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar's first challenger.
Mr. Severson outlined his theocratic beliefs in an interview with a local pastor. The Minnesota Independent's got the audio, including:
We are a nation based on Christian principles and ideals, and those are the things that guarantee our liberties. It is one of those things that is so fundamental to the freedoms that we have that when you begin to restrict our belief and our attestation to our Christian values you begin to restrict our liberties.
Democrats are defending 23 Senate seats in 2012, compared to 10 for Republicans.
