God Wrote the Constitution, Tom DeLay Says

by Dan Quinn

Disgraced former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay offered folks a peculiar civics lesson today. Our friends at Right Wing Watch caught the Texas Republican explaining what he thinks is the source of problems our nation faces today:

“I think we got off the track when we allowed our government to become a secular government, when we stopped realizing that God created this nation, that he wrote the Constitution, that it’s based on biblical principles, and we allowed those that don’t believe in those things to keep pushing us, pushing us, and pushing us away from the government. And instead of standing up and being unashamedly a follower of Jesus Christ and fighting for our values in our society.”

DeLay was speaking on the talk show of Matthew Hagee, the son of San Antonio megapastor John Hagee.
