For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: “Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.”

Things went a little better when Mendez delivered a secular invocation in 2014.

So when Mendez signed up in January to give the invocation that took place yesterday, you’d think there’d be no problem at all.

Instead, House Majority Leader Steve Montenegro blocked him from giving the speech, citing an unofficial rule that all invocations had to be made to a Higher Power.
