Liberal talk radio is having a field day with mainstream Republican senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell’s admission that she dabbled in witchcraft a decade or so ago. The talking heads are suggesting that Ms. O’Donnell secure the services of exorcist-turned-governor Bobby Jindal to “cure” her of this malady.
There’s a lot to discuss about Christine O’Donnell, but liberals should know better that religion is not one of them. She has just as much right practicing Wicca as millions of American Muslims have practicing Islam (although I suspect many of her ardent followers would disagree with the latter.)
There’s enough known about Ms. O’Donnell to conclude that she is eminently unqualified to represent Delaware in the United States Senate, not the least of which is her alleged criminal activity regarding misuse of campaign funds. Her major qualification is that the former Moorestown, NJ resident was a baby sitter for the daughter of a close friend.
So let Ms. O’Donnell continue her tirades against sex, women, individual rights, and whatever other bogeyman she chooses. And hope the sane voters in Delaware go to the polls on November 2nd. But liberals must be consistent with their philosophy, and leave her personal religion out of the campaign discussions.
