A GROUP OF SOME OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL POLICY MAKERS OF THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH ARE ATTENDING A WEEKLY BIBLE STUDY IN THE WHITE HOUSE. NOW, THE ATHEISTS ARE UPSET. . . .
The Washington Post summarizes the original story:
Weekly Bible study classes are being held at the White House, and some Trump administration officials — including Vice President Pence, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos — join when they are in town, according to a story on the Christian Broadcasting Network. (See video below.)
The classes are led by Ralph Drollinger, founder of D.C.-based Capitol Ministries, which lists the following as its mission on its website:
The BHAG (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal) of Capitol Ministries is to deliver the Gospel to every public servant, in every capitol every year! Since our founding in 1996 our vision has not changed: to evangelize elected officials and lead them toward maturity in Christ. We stay away from politics and concentrate on the hearts of leaders. Our above purpose statement reflects this. . . .
CBN reported that DeVos, Sessions, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price have been among the participants, and that President Trump has been invited and receives a copy of each week’s Bible lesson.
But there’s a problem. The ministry’s leader, Ralph Drollinger, explained that the study seems to be having an effect:
It quoted Drollinger as saying: “It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life. They are so teachable. They’re so noble. They’re so learned. . . . ”
Drollinger was quoted as saying this about Sessions: “He’ll go out the same day I teach him something and I’ll see him do it on camera and I just think, ‘Wow, these guys are faithful, available and teachable,’ and they’re at Bible study every week they’re in town.”
And now, the atheists are raving mad…
