Supreme Beings

It’s been said that the Lord moves in mysterious ways. Apparently, so do his followers.

A group of Evangelical Christians who have a keen interest in seeing Judge Samuel Alito confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, were recently caught red-handed in the middle of performing a “consecration service” in the Senate hearing room where the Judiciary Committee proceedings on Alito were about to take place.

So, which of the following was NOT are part of that “consecration service”?

A) Blessing the doors leading to and from the hearing room
B) Anointing with oil the seats in the room where Alito, the senators, their staff and the press were to be sitting
C) Praying for each of the 13 senators on the committee by name
D) Sprinkling holy water on the Bible that Alito will be sworn in on

D) Apparently there was no holy water used in this judicial consecration service, which will be backed up by prayer meetings throughout the entire confirmation hearing. “This is not a pro-Alito prayer,” said Rev. Patrick Mahoney, who took part in the service. However, said co-consecrator Rev. Rob Schenck, “God…is interested in what goes on.” Amen!
