Misled or Misleading?

According to ABC News, Republican Katherine Harris has made “comments which she clarified Saturday in the Florida Baptist Witness, the weekly journal of the Florida Baptist State Convention, which interviewed political candidates and asked them about religion and their positions on issues.”
U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris told a religious journal that separation of church and state is "a lie" and God and the nation's founding fathers did not intend the country be "a nation of secular laws." The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate also said that if Christians are not elected, politicians will "legislate sin," including abortion and gay marriage.
WOW!...what a remarkable display of misunderstanding—of both the Bible and the US Constitution.

Is Harris simply misled, is she pandering to the Religious Right or both?
