The God Squad! These GOP Candidates Say God Told Them To Run
There is no separation of church and state for these Republican candidates for President. Although it seems they all act as if their ideas come from out of this world, Salon has determined that six candidates actually claim that their try for the White House is divinely inspired.
The Wisconsin governor describes his presidential bid as “God’s plan,” explaining that his political decisions are guided by God, not voters.
John Kasich waited for a message from God before becoming the 16th Republican to enter the presidential race this week. During an appearance on NBC’s ”Meet The Press” earlier this year, Gov. Kasich explained to host Chuck Todd that he was exploring what the Lord wants before to deciding to enter the race
“I believe God will make it clear to me if that’s something I’m supposed to do,” Ben Carson told Fox News last August, adding that he would run “if God grabbed him by the collar and asked him to run.”
Perry told CNN, “I’m getting more and more comfortable every day that this is what I’ve been called to do. This is what America needs,” before telling a radio host he decided to run after a message from God.
Rick Santorum’s family also had a divine understanding of what compelled his presidential ambitions. “… We have prayed a lot about this decision, and we believe with all our hearts that this is what God wants.”
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee recently said “For me, this is not just a political or financial decision, it is a spiritual decision. You know, the only thing worse than not being elected president would be to be elected president without God’s blessing. I can’t think of a worse place in the world to be than in the Oval Office without God’s hand upon you.”
