In Which We Think Ourselves Gods

Mr. Sasse's Concept of Celestial Choirs and Bands

The Raw Story:

According to ThinkProgress, the winner of Tuesday’s Republican primary in Nebraska believes that the United States “cannot force citizens to violate their religious beliefs under any circumstance.”

Republican “rising star” Ben Sasse is predicted to win the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Mike Johanns in November by a wide margin, as Nebraska is a solid red state. On his official campaign website, Sasse claims that he “believes that our right to the free exercise of religion is co-equal to our right to life. This is not a negotiable issue. Government cannot force citizens to violate their religious beliefs under any circumstances. He will fight for the right of all Americans to act in accordance with their conscience.” ...

"He will fight for the right..."?

I can just see God humming "From the Halls of Montezu-u-ma to the shores of Tripoli, humty-num-tum."

Mr. Sasse does not know the distinction between himself and God. That is usually a bad sign.

Notice that Mr. Sasse is referred to as a "rising star"...  perhaps a "light bearer"?
