Media Scorn God's Involvement in Elections

The mainstream media's favorite pastime of making fun of Christians again targets Delaware's U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell and her stated belief that God is in control of America's elections (and everything else, for that matter).

-- From "O'Donnell says prayer may have boosted her polling" by Ben Evans, The Associated Press 10/25/10

Delaware Republican Christine O'Donnell says prayer could be boosting support for her Senate campaign.

"The day that we saw a spike in the polls was a day that some people had a prayer meeting for me, that morning, for this campaign, so I believe that prayer plays a direct role in this campaign," O'Donnell said. "I always ask, please pray for the campaign, please pray for our staff, please pray specifically that the eyes of the voters be opened."

O'Donnell has been criticized for her conservative commentary over the years - she once voiced opposition to masturbation in a campaign against premarital sex - and has been ridiculed for saying that she once dabbled in witchcraft. [The AP is in error writing "that she once dabbled in witchcraft."]

It's noteworthy that the mainstream media does NOT quote from this portion of the same interview:
