Alabama Candidate: I Have The Endorsement Of Jesus

Hemant Mehta reports at the Friendly Atheist:

Sandra Little Brown is in a runoff election tonight in a race for Jefferson County Commissioner in Alabama. And according to her own campaign literature, she has a special endorsement… from Jesus.

In a Facebook video sent to on Monday, Brown stood by the flyer, which was paid for by her campaign.

“We pray before we go out and we do anything. That is a divine piece of material that went out from this campaign [Saturday],” Brown tells supporters and staff in at her campaign office in the video.

In an interview with last week, Brown said she believed being a Jefferson County commissioner is part of God’s plan, adding that she is a Sunday school teacher and deaconess at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Riley. “God has ordained me to this because I couldn’t do it without him,” she said.
