Todd Akin: "At The Heart Of Liberalism Really Is A Hatred For God"

Representative Todd Akin has a penchant for saying outrageous things, but this one may take the cake. 

In a conversation with Family Research Council president Tony Perkins about NBC cutting the phrase "under God" out of the pledge of allegiance during coverage of the U.S. Open, Akin said the following:

Perkins: Why would NBC do this?

Akin: Well, I think NBC has a long record of being very liberal and at the heart of liberalism really is a hatred for God and a belief that government should replace God. And so they’ve had a long history of not being at all favorable toward many of things that have been such a blessing to our country. 

Let that sink in...and you won't be surprised to learn that Akin might omit the word "indivisible" from the pledge when he recites it.
