I have watched the video and have listened to the chaplain’s prayer. It is a theologically-solid prayer, much like I have prayed on many occasions. It was not partisan. It just lifted up the Representatives’ responsibility on behalf of the least of these among us. But, that was far too threatening for that august body.
Paul Ryan fired the chaplain for reflecting the light of Christ in the midst of darkness. Shining the light of Christ’s love in a den of thieves causes them to flee every time.
Standing up for the poor and hungry, especially to the wealthy and powerful elite, is a good way to shorten your career path. It’s also, however, how you stay on the highway to holiness.
Shame on Paul Ryan, and shame on all those in the U.S. House of Representatives who have not stood up against this action.
At this point, this isn’t conjecture. It’s a fact. Our president will do anything necessary to protect Russia.
No one is allowed to attack Putin for any reason. Everything else is fair game. But, publicly agree with all our intelligence agencies that Russia has, and is attacking the US on a regular basis, and you are gone, even if you retirement is just days away.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the #BLOTUS would defend the US instead of Russia?
