What could Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a possible presidential candidate in 2016, have said that have critics calling him a “theocratic dictator”?

“Phillippians 4:13”

Yes, it’s a reference to a bible verse – if you haven’t memorized the bible the full bit is, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” –  but one that’s particularly uplifting, especially if you’re, say, under fire from critics.

And Walker didn’t even speak that bible verse aloud, he tweeted it.

So, the Freedom From Religion foundation, which is based in Wisconsin, put out a statement saying that Walker is abusing his “secular” office and that the tweet was “overtly theocratic.” A theocrat, in case you don’t know, is a religious dictator.

KTTH host David Boze wondered what the Freedom From Religion foundation has to say about, oh, every single president of the United States since George Washington who has used prayer in his office.

“That’s why I don’t take the Freedom From Religion Foundation seriously,” Boze said. “I take them as a sad, sad symptom in the culture. It’s those kinds of individuals that are stripping down the culture.”
