Janet Mefferd hosts a radio show on The Word, which sits at 100.7 on your FM dial. Per her program's description, she "takes a Christ-centered look at the news and events of the day," and on this day that includes former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, who, of course, is vying for Kay Bailey Hutchison's seat in the U.S. Senate. Today's subject: bringing God on the campaign trail.

Tom "I'm Not a Politician" Leppert himself posted the clip you'll find below, in which he addresses his religion ("My identity is a Christian. My identity is not being mayor or head of a large company or anything else"), insists the Founding Fathers "were evangelicals" (well ...) and acknowledges, "I got talked into running for mayor five years ago." Thank ... goodness.

He said his faith has guided him whether he was mayor or head of a large corporation. Does that mean that god wants downtown to flood or desire to spend his time at the Southern Baptist Convention inside the city-owned hotel?

I hope he comes in last in the GOP Primary.   He was such a "liar" as mayor.  I could tell he was "slimy" the first time I met him.

Tom is always a favorite attraction at the Pander Bear exhibit.

Anyone that says the founding fathers were "evangelicals" is either lying or completely ignorant of our country's founding and history and thus unfit for office.

Don't be so narrow minded, I believe "Comfortable" Tom Leppert is capable of being ignorant while lying.
