The golden "God told me to do it" reasoning has caused more death than you and I have had hot meals.
Let's keep that church and state separate lest the US becomes a Theocratic Oligarchy.

Biden praises Pope Benedict's integrity, jokes he won't run to succeed him

PHILADELPHIA -- Vice President Joe Biden hailed Pope Benedict XVI's retirement announcement, calling him a man of "great integrity."
But first, Biden joked that he won't be seeking to replace him.
“I am not running,” Biden said after hosting a gun violence summit here.
"I had a chance to meet with the Holy Father several months ago privately for an hour. And his decision reinforced for me that … this is a man of great integrity and looking out for what he believes is the best interest of our church. I admire him for it. I think it’s been 713 or so years since anyone has ever done that. I think he sets an incredibly high standard.”
CNN announced its debate criteria on Monday, making clear that Vice President Joe Biden will have the chance to make it onto the first debate stage on Oct. 13, should he declare.
In order to qualify for the debate stage, candidates must have achieved an average of 1 percent in three polls, recognized by CNN, released between Aug. 1 and Oct. 10. Candidates must also declare by Oct. 14, CNN said, meaning that Biden could announce his candidacy the day of the debate and still qualify.
