Allen West: 'People who Possess no Deep Faith are not Happy'
Conservative former U.S. Rep. Allen West, who has opened the door to a political comeback in 2016, defended religion in the public square and expressed doubts that nonreligious people can be happy.
“I had a meeting in downtown D.C. and am standing at the McPherson Square Metro and an advertisement caught my eye saying, ‘Millions of Americans are living happily without religion.’ The ad is sponsored by the Center for Inquiry,” West posted on Facebook on Wednesday.
“America has a Judeo-Christian faith heritage and promotes the free exercise of religion,” West continued. “However, it has been my experience in life that people who possess no deep faith are not happy. After all, as it says in Joshua, chapter 24, ‘As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.’ Yeah, we do need a Values Voters Summit and probably another Great Awakening in America.”
