Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX) spoke alongside several other members of Congress on Wednesday at an event called “Washington — A Man of Prayer,” and he used his time to openly weep about the First Amendment, women’s rights, and marriage equality.
“We have endeavored to try and kick your word out of public schools,” Weber said. “Father, we have endeavored to take the Bible out of classrooms, the Ten Commandments off the walls. Oh, Lord, forgive us. Father, we think we’re so smart, we have replaced your word and your precepts with drug-sniffing dogs, with metal detectors, with uniformed police officers in our schools. Oh, Lord, forgive us.”
“Father, we have trampled on your holy institution of holy matrimony and tried to rewrite what it is and we’ve called it an alternate lifestyle,” Weber continued, his voice cracking. “Father, oh Father, please forgive us.”
“Lord, we have gone to killing the most innocent amongst us,” he wept. “Your servant Moses warned in Deuteronomy 19 for us to choose life so that we and all our descendants might live. Father, we’re killing our descendants and we’re calling it a choice. Oh, God in heaven, forgive us, please.”
Note the irony, too, of Weber blasting the First Amendment. Conservatives love to talk about how we live in a Christian country, even claiming that the Founding Fathers were inspired by God. But the Establishment Clause? Clearly the work of Satan.
It’s also silly that he thinks God would be upset over these things. God doesn’t give a damn that a thrice-married, women-degrading, pathological lying President is in the White House. Shouldn’t that send believers everywhere a sign that He’s not interested in our affairs?
