The proclamation didn’t gain any attention in the corporate-run news media. Perhaps Washington D.C.’s reporters weren’t up early enough in the morning to see it taking place. Yet, the apocalyptic declaration of the coming End Times is a matter of public record.
The speaker, a publicly-paid official with the federal government, stood before the assembled House of Representatives and declared: “Lord God, through the Holy Scriptures You speak to Your people…. As people of the Book, we will see Your prophetic and apocalyptic proclamations fulfilled in our time.”
The Apocalyse is coming soon! All the dark prophecies of the Book of Revelation will be fulfilled within our lifetime! The Angel of the Bottomless Pit will soon rise! The great red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns will soon appear! The vials of the wrath of God will be poured out upon the earth before too long now!
So declared the federal government’s official religious spokesman, Daniel P. Coughlin, the Chaplain of the House of Representatives.
Just what are the members of the House of Representatives supposed to do with this piece of information? Provide extra funding to FEMA? Pass a resolution directing the State Department to prepare a special diplomatic mission to greet Jesus? Create special military forces prepared to deal with dragons and seven-headed beasts? Pass a constitutional amendment revoking the separation of church and state?
