The House chaplain on Wednesday opened the morning session with a prayer, but it sounded much more like a diatribe against anyone who dared to oppose Democrats’ pork-filled COVID stimulus bill.
“Almighty God,” Rear Adm. Margaret Grun Kibben, an ordained Presbyterian (PCUSA) minister began. “As these lawmakers take their sides on this factional bill before them, we pray your mercy. Forgive them, all of them. For when called upon to respond to a once-in-a-century pandemic that has rocked our country, upended its economy, and widened the chasm of partisan opinion, they have missed the opportunity to step above the fray and unite to attend to this national crisis.”
She wasn’t done there! She continued to hammer lawmakers. Listen for yourself below. And as you do, we pose this question: Do you feel like this prayer was OK? It seems it actually contributes to the division that Kibben so rails against.
