So here’s South Carolina’s “other” U.S. Senator Tim Scott getting God-fondled by a bunch of social conservatives – including former S.C. Republican Party chairman Chad Connelly.
What a scene, right? Seriously … all that’s missing is Jimmy Lee Farnsworth and some guest healers.
Anyway, this picture was tweeted out earlier this week by the American Renewal Project, a group that lobbies elected officials on behalf of their conception of The Almighty. Oh … and Israel. They love them some Israel.
Obviously we’re not knocking Christians. Or the free expression of religion. Or prayer.
However the last time we checked there was a right way and a wrong way to go about praying … and the authority on that is none other than the guy in whose name all these blowhards are praying.
“But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you,” Jesus said during his Sermon on the Mount.
Nowhere in there does it reference tweeting for maximum public relations value …
