After Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker made another reference to God speaking to him in a speech before bankers in January, Freedom From Religion Foundation member Edward Susterich made an open records request of his office for evidence of his communications with the Lord — and his office replied, officially, that it could find none.
Governor Walker has never been shy about flashing his religious credentials, regularly telling audiences about the nondenominational evangelical church he attends, the Baptist preacher who raised him, and his belief that he only runs for office when “called” upon by God to do so.
As he told the bankers in January, “[a]ny major decision I’ve made in my life, politics or otherwise, I’ve tried to discern God’s calling on.”
As noted in Raw Story’s report, Freedom From Religion Foundation member Edward Susterich (who also happens to be a regular reader of this blog) filed the open records request demanding the governor “provide a copy/transcript of all communications with God, the Lord, Christ, Jesus or any other form of deity,” and Gov. Walker’s office was quick to respond that they did not have any records responsive to Susterich’s request.
What, God couldn’t be bothered to send Gov. Walker a quick email?
