There's nothing wrong with expressing one's faith, I agree. And were that we had more people of faith in governance like Bush, Lieberman, etc. rather than so many of these secular slobs on the left.
I think President Bush has struck a good balance with showing himself to be a man of faith but without being over-the-top with it, although to listen to the MSM's hysterical caricaturing of his religious devotion you'd think the man was the Christian version of an Iranian mullah. But in fact the president is quite muted about his faith, only bringing it up during appropriate moments and most often when being baited by some media punk to try to make him appear to be some sort of religious fanatic. And when he does so it's done in a very appropriate and respectful way. But clearly the president has good judgment about when and how to express his religious faith. I could never imagine him expressing it as sloppily and recklessly as Harris did.

What did Christ say about being "lukewarm?"
"I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I would that you were cold or hot."
"So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth."
Would you criticize her for practicing her politics in the same manner? Try not to be too conservative so as not to offend liberals? Don't be too Republican so as not to offend Democrats?
We expect our soldiers to be the best as do we our engineers, scientists and most all other professions and areas of endeavors, yet expect our Christians to be some kind of 'Touched by an Angel', 'plastic Jesus', wisheywashey type of Christian. We need to get away from that mindset.
