Mr. Reid, President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have pushed “entitlement programs built to make government our God,” says Mrs. Angle, who has called for privatizing Social Security and Medicare for younger workers.
“What’s happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment,” Mrs. Angle told TruNews in the April interview, which is posted on the network’s website.
“We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We’re supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government,” she said.
Mr. Reid‘s campaign said in a statement Wednesday that Mrs. Angle‘s statements are “frightening.” Since Mrs. Angle won the GOP nomination in June, Mr. Reid‘s campaign has depicted the “tea party” favorite in TV ads as an extremist who would gut federal programs and turn her back on those in need.
“The fact that Sharron Angle believes she’s on a religious crusade to eliminate critical programs like Social Security, Medicare, and unemployment insurance that help hundreds of thousands of Nevadans in need is both dangerous and extreme,” the statement said.
Mrs. Angle‘s campaign pointed out that Mr. Reid, too, has spoken about the relationship between politics and his Mormon religion. In a speech at Brigham Young University in 2007, he said, “My faith and political beliefs are deeply intertwined. I am a Democrat because I am a Mormon, not in spite of it.”
