The Republican National Convention opened today with presentation of our National Colors, the Pledge of Allegiance, the National Anthem, and… a Rabbi opened in prayer asking God for guidance, before proceeding to the business at hand.
In case you were wondering… the GOP still puts God front and center.
And after a ridiculously contentious exchange in the afternoon session on the RNC floor, out walked Pastor Mark Burns from the Harvest Praise & Worship Center to deliver the closing prayer. And in an instant, the entire place settled down and came together for 2 minutes.
Because that’s what we do in this “one nation under God.” We come together and seek God’s guidance for our lives. At least the Republican Party still does. We’ll see next week if the Democrat Party does the same thing.
