Christians are funny people. They believe in an unseen God and even agree among themselves that he answers them in their prayers to him. But let someone say that have a personal line to the man and, well … let this experience with a candidate for the North Miami mayor’s seat speak to this last part
It’s traditional in politics, especially in pockets of the South where the culture is steeped in religion to convey to the voters that they hold “traditional Christian values” – an expression that is often code, telling voters that they are not a liberal Muslim socialist and that a “higher authority” guides their policy decisions, not the reality of grounded facts.
But clearly this candidate running for North Miami mayor has taken this tradition to a new level. Claiming Jesus has endorsed her campaign is a game of one-upmanship that didn’t play out well with voters. In a field of seven candidates Anna Pierre came in dead last with only 56 votes cast for her. Think what would have happened had Jesus not been supporting her.
