Failed presidential candidate and current John McCain supporter Sam Brownback appeared at Georgetown University to discuss the role of faith in politics. While he claims not to support a theocracy – “I think it’s bad for religion. I think it’s also bad for government.” – the Kansas Senator made sure to say that religion should play a role in policy creation: “When faith informs public policy, it helps ensure that human dignity is at the center of everything.” This is the same Brownback who indignantly attempted to squash Michigan federal Judge Janet Neff’s nomination because she attended a civil union ceremony.
