GOP Senate candidate says the greatest crisis facing kids is ‘they don’t have enough God in their lives’

During a U.S. Senate primary debate this Sunday night, Republican Ohio Senate candidate Josh Mandel railed against the “secular left,” saying they’re are the greatest threat facing children today.

“I think the worst thing happening to kids today is that the secular left, the fake news media, the uni-party in Washington, they’re trying to take God out of all aspects of society,” Mandel said, adding that the left is trying to “water down” the “Judeo-Christian bedrock of America.”

“And my personal feeling is, we shouldn’t be watering down, we should be doubling down,” he said. “We should be instilling faith in the classroom, in the workplace, and everywhere in society.”

Mandel went on to slam the argument that the separation between church and state prevents the teaching of religion in the public sector.

“My personal feeling is, there’s no such thing as separation between church and state,” he said as the crowd applauded.

“The Framers of the Constitution envisioned a country where in the classroom, kids would learn about God.”
