Jennifer Carroll, the Lt. Governor of Florida, gave a speech at Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition gathering last week and appeared to be auditioning to be Pat Robertson’s next co-host on the 700 Club. She says crazy things like this:
You know the Bible says faith is believing in what is not seen, today unfortunately many in the media would like nothing better to ridicule Christians: they promote ‘The Da Vinci Code,’ they place doubt in the public’s mind that Christ was not risen and they condemn the ‘Passion of Christ,’ yet they sensationalize stories that call for the end of prayer in school and removing the name of God from our country’s pledge. Ladies and gentlemen, these are very sad times when we allow the minority to poison the minds of the majority. This is exactly what dictators and socialist rulers did.
I’m still trying to figure out what the first clause has to do with anything else she said there. There’s no connection at all. It’s just word salad.
