Wednesday: Republican Senators, Reps join some of nation's most anti-gay activists for streaming prayer

by Jeremy Hooper

Tomorrow, streaming live from Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol, a group of elected members of Congress will join forces with some of this nation's most vocal anti-LGBT activists in order to create what they hope will be "a spiritual turning point for the nation as Americans witness members of Congress reaching out to God in penitent prayers from inside the nation’s Capitol." Speakers will include Sen. Ted Cruz, Fox News host Mike Huckabee, Representative Louie Gohmert, Representative Michele Bachmann, Harry Jackson, Jim Garlow, Robert Jeffress, Senator Mike Lee, Chaplain of the Senate Rev. Barry Black, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, Chaplain of the House Fr. Patrick Conroy, Pastor Rafael Cruz, Pastor Sergio De La Mora, Dr. Peter Lillback, Penny Nance, Tony Perkins, and more. They call this little stunt "Washington: A Man of Prayer"

I guess "Falwell: A Man of Culture War" would've seemed less historic. Although it would've more accurately described this coalition's modern attempt to undermine so many crucial American principles by pretending to know the apparently discriminatory heart of this 18th century father of a drastically different nation.
