WOW! House Chaplain Opens House Session with Prayer and Lecture on Suffering the Anxiety of “Contentious and Unproductive Argument” (VIDEO)
Read Admiral Margaret Kibben (Retired) delivered the prayer on Friday night to open the Friday late-night session of the US House of Representatives.
Kibben is a U.S. Presbyterian minister who is the chaplain of the United States House of Representatives.
Gibben opened up her prayer telling the assembly, “Dear God, it seems this evening we may be at last standing at the threshold of a new Congress.”
That raised some eyebrows. How does she know this? Did she poll the remaining GOP holdouts? Did she have insider information on the number of Democrats who were blowing off tonight’s session?
Chaplain Gibben then went on to say this about the voting this week, “We asked (God) for your help in our deliberations and you answered us. But your answer was to allow us to suffer the anxiety, uncertainty, and aggravation that follows when we choose to allow healthy debate to evolve into contentious and unproductive argument. And yet in your mercy you transformed this forray of discord as an opportunity to find common ground.”
Another lecture from a DC elitist.
What a travesty.
