You be the judge:
"This nation must stand for or against Christ," Coburn stated in the article distributed under his byline. "The Bible clearly tells us that it is impossible to stand in the middle."
Even though he entitled his article " Christian Principles Belong in Government, " Coburn said he was not promoting Christianity over other religions but only focusing on the model offered by Christ.
"What you do, what you say, and how you live your life does make a difference. It's time to take a look at Israel. They were severely punished when they turned from God."
Coburn also has a habit of referring to Jews as "God's chosen people." He probably thinks this earns him points with Jewish audiences. But I, for one, would prefer that he stop using that particular construction.
