I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously. . . . I believe that! You never have to practice deception. God always provides a way out.
No he doesn't. Bad things happens all the time to people who are trying to do the right thing. That doesn't mean there is no God. Nor does it mean that the person to whom the bad thing happens won't be rewarded in the hereafter. Nor does it mean that doing the right thing wasn't the best choice under the circumstances. What it means is that rational human beings don't make decisions based on the assumption that God is going to come to the rescue if things go badly. I suspect that part of the reason we went to war in Iraq was because George Bush was sure that God would make everything work out alright.
I have no problem with religious people in politics if they have the attitude of the priest who prayed with a high school football team before the game. One of the players asked him whether God would really help them win the game. The priest replied, "He will if you block your man." Religious faith is not a substitute for intelligence and competence.
If you like Sarah Palin, you are going to love Christine O'Donnell. She's prettier and her sentences generally have nouns and verbs in the right places. Unlike Palin who got flustered by softball questions from Katie Couric, O'Donnell regularly went on Bill Maher's show and maintained her composure when bantering with quick-witted intelligent people like Maher, Izzard, and Martin Mull.
