In a "melding of church and state," the GOP met in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday.

Among the theocratic ramblings were:
"This is not a political disagreement. This is a religious disagreement."
"Lord, your words tell us there's a sign that this nation is under a curse, when the alien who lives among us grows higher and higher and we grow lower and lower."
"We pledge to exert our influence toward a return to the original intent of the First Amendment and dispel the myth of the separation of church and state."
"America is a Christian nation" and "God is undeniable in our history and is vital to our freedom."
God is the chairman of the Republican Party? Wouldn't that make the GOP the "party of god?" In Arabic, it's translated to Hezbolah
. If you change the word "christian" to the word "muslim," the article looks like it might be describing a religious party in Pakistan, formerly of Afghanistan.
