This is the guy whose state House resolution declared 2012 to be “The Year Of The Bible” in Pennsylvania and who sponsored an ultimately failed bill that would have required all public school boards to display “In God We Trust” at their meetings. Kyle Mantyla reports at Right Wing Watch:
Pennsylvania Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone held a rally in Harrisburg earlier this week where he announced that he intends to run for the U.S. Senate against Democratic Sen. Bob Casey Jr. next year. Religious Right pseudo-historian David Barton and Sam Rohrer of the American Pastors Network joined Saccone at his rally, and yesterday Saccone appeared on Rohrer’s “Stand In The Gap” radio program where he explained that he is launching this bid for higher office because God wants Christians “who will rule with the fear of God in them to rule over us.”
