“Father, America the beautiful doesn’t look too beautiful right now,” the New York bishop said in Statuary Hall of the United States Capitol during a conservative prayer event. “Violence covers our land. Our streets are covered in blood and our prisons are crowded with our young people. Immorality and witchcraft are served to the masses as its daily bread and it is now the food of the day.”
“An economic tsunami is coming that threatens the very future of our nation,” Nunez continued. “The ground is shaking, the winds are blowing. Water and fire at every corner of this nation. Nature is screaming, yet no one is listening. We intellectually explain things away and justify our actions as the necessary pathway we must take because we are evolving. We have forgotten you, our God, and rejected your presence.”
The event, called “Washington — A Man of Prayer,” also featured Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and Steve King (R-IA), along with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). The event commemorated the 225th anniversary of a prayer that George Washington delivered after being elected the country’s first president.
