Tom DeLay Claims God 'Wrote The Constitution'

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) urged Americans to realize that God “wrote the Constitution” and predicted an upcoming “awakening” during aninterview on John Hagee Ministries’ Global Evangelism Television network on Wednesday.
“I think we got off the track when we allowed our government to become a secular government,” DeLay told host Matthew Hagee, the executive pastor of the Texas Cornerstone Church. “[W]e stopped realizing that God created this nation, that he wrote the Constitution, that it’s based on biblical principles.”
DeLay, who was convicted of money laundering and conspiracy charges before a Texas appeals court overturned the conviction in 2013, said that he has been trying to lead members of the House to Bible study. He then recounted an incident in which he “sealed off the rotunda of the Capitol ... so that for three hours leaders of the House and Senate got on their knees seeking the face of God and praying.”

Surprise surprise...old respected republican sensing the spirit o the times and simply trying t capitalize off of. As said in the clip, we have been corrupt since before the constitution. commend Mr. Tom for publicly giving credit to where credit is and always will be due. As a nation, especially among young people, there an eruption of mistrust has begun to evolve. The one thing that has began to take shape specifically is the "restructuring" of our faith. Given this minimal observation and material, but with a profound understanding and perception of history, I see this as an attempt to connect with those who are committed to their faith (especially Chrstians) and rea whatever benefits may lie ahead for all participating parties.
