Jacksonville, Florida City Council candidate Kimberly Daniels is convinced that Halloween candy is blessed by witches and thus has demon-cream filling instead of marshmallow or caramel. Daniels, a Democrat, and Dominionist minister with her own radio show is facing a runoff against Republican David Taylor. Despite running as a Democrat, she prayedIMG_0023.jpg

for favor upon Senator McCain and Governor Palin;

announced

Even if someone gave me a billion dollars, I could not vote for Obama.

and prayed that President Obama will

break every soul tie and vow that has been established between him and Harvard, secret societies and the illuminati...

Along with believing

antichrist spirits rule in their arenas with programs such as The View and CNN News

Daniels is concerned about Halloween candy:2011-04-25-Screenshot20110424at5.44.17PM.png

most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches.

I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.

Okay there are plenty of Democrats who aren't fond of Obama, and plenty of people who have faiths that involve a huge willing suspension of disbelief: Space aliens blown up in volcanoes that now stick to our bodies; talking bushes; virgin births; flying donkeys; cargo cults; magic underwear, etc. I practice a faith that brings with it a cauldron-full of wtf, so it's not like I am picking on any one religion; they are all a little odd to outsiders, oh heck they are kinda weird and at times unbelievable to the people who practice them, too.

But Daniels' form of Christianity -- which believes there are demons everywhere from the corner store to the Capitol that must be exorcised by a "strongman," which believes that only her version of Christianity is acceptable to rule the country if not the world -- may not make her the best choice for any elected office. Especially when coupled with this statement:

I thank God for slavery. Mmm. I thank God for the crack house. If it wasn't for the crack house, come on somebody, God wouldn't a never been able to use me how he can use me know. And if it wasn't for slavery I might be somewhere in Africa worshiping a tree!

And you can talk about the Holocaust, but the Jews own everything! We go through some things, but let me tell you something - when you go through you qualify to get paid back. You don't need the government to give it back, God'll give it back.

Jacksonville deserves better than Kimberly Daniels. Politics and both parties deserve better than Kimberly Daniels. And certainly, Christianity deserves better, too.

"Demon-cream Filling" is going to be the title of my next supernatural romance novel.

Wow, we have someone that is even more batshit crazy that the right has.

someone needs their meds adjusted or started on some that actually work...

I've seen worse in Jax. Its one of the reasons why I left. There is a good segment of Jax that isn't board line batshitcrazy, they're so far over the line that they seem sane again.

Um... Can I please move out of Florida now? Anyone renting a room? Somewhere? Anywhere?

That woman should simply not be allowed to be "at large" in any community. However, they should give her the city council job tho. That way she can be batsh*t crazy out in public where it's noticeable just don't give her any decision making capability.

This constant "Obama" bashing is blatant racism (even if the basher IS also a person of color)! I find it abhorrent that in 21st Century America we are still battling the interracial conflicts of the civil war from the 1850s and the sexist, homophobic culture war of the 1980s!!!

These delusional religious nut-jobs (that seems kinda redundant desn't it???) needs to stop telling the rest of us who is "holy" and who is "unholy"; they almost always get it reversed! Obama has done a remarkable job considering the "cluster fuck crap-fest" he inherited from the religious conservative Republicans and the supremely greedy wall street demigods! There is not a single republican candidate that will offer much of a challenge to Obama's second term and hopefully, once untethered from election battles, this president can get down to fixing the economy and reversing the vulgar greed of the super-rich that the republicans have cultivated in the USA.

In a more sane world conservative, religious republicans would be quite embarrassed by the mess they have created AND continue to perpetuate! But I do want to thank Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and especially "the Donald" for the yucks they have supplied to us. Too bad people had not yet woken up to the truth and made "Dubya" only a single term president. We might have avoided all this financial meltdown!!!

Sounds like a winner. Make her Sarah Palin's VP candidate.
