Audio: In U.S. Capitol, Pastor Robert Jeffress tells Congress what issues they're allowed to debate

by Jeremy Hooper

Tonight was the silly "Washington A Man of Prayer" I told you about earlier this week. That's the one where extremely anti-gay figures and extremely conservative members of Congress (but I repeat myself) gathered in the U.S. Capitol's statuary hall to pray that they might be free to force their personal faith into public policy.

If you missed it, you're certainly forgiven. Better for it, even. And thankfully, through this one hubristic clip, you can get the gist of the entire proceedings:

If only Sen. Almighty (R-Upstairs) would write his bills more legibly. As it stands, his laws seem a little too open to interpretation to be firm policy.

I also have to say that it's pretty funny that Jeffress cites marriage as outside the realm of congressional debate, considering the only major debates on that matter have concerned the *limitation* of equal marriage rights. They've been actions from *his* side, not ours. So when it comes to stopping that discriminatory nonsense, let me be the first to say: Oh God, please!
