The U.S. Senate, For Two-Thirds Of America, All Of The Time
Yesterday, the United States Senate performed its officially-established ritual of Christian worship, led by the Christian priest Barry C. Black, who stood at the center of the floor of the Senate and invoked an invisible supernatural ruler, asking this being to take power over the United States. Black called out:
“Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were formed or the Earth received its frame, You are and have been without beginning or ending. Thank You for the heartbeats we borrow each day. May Your life-sustaining power inspire our lawmakers to trust Your sovereignty… Rule and reign in Your world in spite of the prevalence of pathology and sin.”
This kind of thing happens every day that the United States Senate is open for business.
According to the Pew Forum On Religion And Public Life:
– 33 percent of Americans are not affiliated with any religion
– Only 50 percent of Americans participate in religious rituals even once per month
– Only 53 percent of Americans say that religion is very important
Given these statistics, and the fact that the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”, why is the U.S. Congress opened with a Christian religious ritual every day?
