    John Adams, COTUS "made only for a moral and religious people." Bitter Clingers!

    "Rep. Louie Gohmert sent out first a quote and then a quip to rally-goers in Iowa that if John Adams thought the Constitution was for moral, righteous people, then that meant the legal document was primarily for modern-day Americans who revere both God and guns.

    First the quote, from Mr. Adams from 1798: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other,” the Texas Republican said.

    Mr. Gohmert then quipped, Raw Story reported: “It only is fit for people who cling to their God and their guns, you know?”"

    Gohmert was there when Adams said it right?

    Anyway...as far as legislatures saying prayers ... courts have no jurisdiction over house rules at all ... other places they would, like city council meetings.

    All I hear on TV is about how the house, everyday, says a prayer.
