Ed Martin says he totally meant what he said we need to be be "very, very aware" of moves by Barack Obama and Russ Carnahan to "take away..the ultimate freedom to find your salvation," but is finding it oddly difficult to explain why that's true.
KMOX radio host Charlie Brennan was not impressed with Martin's accusations. "Now, come on! Neither the President or Congressman Carnahan are taking away your right to find your salvation, to get your salvation, and to find Christ." Listen to an excerpt of this morning's back and forth:
Brennan repeatedly asked Martin to defend the assertion this morning, and Martin repeatedly gave answers that didn't address the question. He talked about his concerns regarding taxpayer funding for abortion, and amorphous freedoms he says he's losing, but was completely unable to explain how:
When you take a government and you impose, and take away all your choices, one of the choices you take away is to find the Lord, and find your savior.
And that's one of the things that's most destructive about the growth of government. It's this taking away that freedom. The freedom -- the ultimate freedom, to find your salvation, to get your salvation. And to find Christ, for me and you.
And I think that's one of the things that we have to be very, very aware of that the Obama Administration and Congressman Carnahan are doing to us.
I'm shocked, just shocked that Martin has been unable to provide any evidence to back up his absurd accusations.
It's almost like Martin assumed that because he was talking to a friendly radio station and was getting all sorts of softball questions from a sympathetic radio host, he wouldn't be held accountable for the things he said.
