What First Amendment?

This is how Cathy McMorris Rodgers, a Representative in the United States Congress, ended her “Republican Response” to the President’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday night.
“Tonight, I simply offer a prayer… A prayer for Sgt. Hess’s family, your family, and for our larger American family. That, with the guidance of God, we may prove worthy of His blessings of life … liberty … and the pursuit of happiness. For when we embrace these gifts, we are each doing our part to form a more perfect union. May God guide you and our President, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.”
Was this a sermon or a political speech? (Trick question! It was actually a mindless, bland recital of pabulum containing no actual substantive policy suggestions.)

Jebus H. Christ, don’t these people realize they’re supposed to represent ALL Americans? (Another trick question. Of course they don’t.)

Of course they realize they’re supposed to represent all Americans; all Real Americans® are Christian!
