Many in the media have been mocking Republicans and Christians for feeling the need to pray for the victims in the Texas Church massacre. CNN’s Don Lemon went as far as to say that prayer can’t help because the shooting victims in church were already praying.
“Thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers. Don’t get me wrong. Prayers are important. They really are,” said Don Lemon. “This is not about religion. So spare me the anti-religion tweets,” Lemon said. “You can keep them. I won’t even read them. I don’t care,” he said.
“These God-fearing Christians were in church. They were already praying. Thoughts and prayers did not stop an oversight from the justice system which enabled a guy who attacked his stepson and assaulted his wife from getting a gun,” said Lemon.
“Thoughts and prayers didn’t stop a troubled person from buying assault grade weapons that took the lives of 26 people in an instant,” said Lemon. “So tonight, I hope you will join me in praying that our leaders will actually do something of substance and action this time that precludes another thoughts and prayers moment,” said Lemon.
Paul Ryan perfectly explained why Lemon and the liberal secular media won’t get it. “It’s sad and this is what you’ll get from the far secular left. People who do not have faith don’t understand faith, I guess I’d have to say. And, it is the right thing to do, is to pray in moments like this because you know what?
Prayer works. When you hear the secular left doing this thing, no wonder you’ve got so much polarization and disunity in this country when people think like that,” said Ryan. Check out the videos below.
