Bring no more vain offerings;
GOP prayer breakfasts are an abomination to me.
Press conferences and the NRA rallies—
I cannot endure iniquity and CPAC assembly.
Your thoughts and prayers
my soul hates;
they have become a burden to me,
I am weary of bearing them.
When you spread forth your hands,
I will hide my eyes from you;
even though you make many prayers,
I will not listen;
your hands are full of blood.
Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
remove the evil of your doings
from before my eyes;
cease to do evil,
learn to do good;
defend the fatherless,
plead for the widow. (Is 1:13–17)
And if, as I am sometimes told, such adaptations of Scripture to present circumstances offends you, permit me to add:
Woe to you, MAGA liars and Gun Cult pettifoggers, hypocrites! for you devour elementary schoolkids in mass slaughters and for a pretense you make long prayers; therefore you will receive the greater condemnation. Woe to you, MAGA liars and Gun Cultists, hypocrites! for you obsess over trivialities like paraphrasing scripture, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law, justice and mercy and faith. You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel! (Matthew 23:14, 23-24)
