Sen. Jim DeMint: The Bigger Government Gets, The Smaller God Gets

Posted by | March 15, 2011 15:52 | Filed under: Top Stories

South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint, speaking on a Family Research Council radio show, must have thought he was also speaking for God; for, according to DeMint, as the government gets bigger, God gets smaller.

DeMINT: Some are trying to separate the social, cultural issues from fiscal issues, but you really can’t do that. America works, freedom works, when people have that internal gyroscope that comes from a belief in God and Biblical faith. Once we push that out, you no longer have the capacity to live as a free person without the external controls of an authoritarian government. I’ve said it often and I believe it – the bigger government gets, the smaller God gets. As people become more dependent on government, less dependent on God.
