Former GOP House Majority Leader Tom Delay: Americans have forgotten that God “wrote the Constitution”

During a recent appearance on Hagee the Younger’s program, DeLay started waxing philosophic on just where America went wrong. His conclusion? “I think we got off track when we allowed our government to become a secular government.”

That wasn’t the totality of DeLay’s analysis, however. The former congressman — who was once known as “the Hammer,” probably because he was such a nice guy? — continued to explain that America messed up when its people “stopped realizing that God created this nation, that He wrote the Constitution, that it’s based on Biblical principles…”

DeLay went on to complain that he and other members of the religious right messed up when “we allowed those that don’t believe in those things to keep pushing us and pushing us and pushing us away from the government instead of standing up and being unashamedly a follower of Jesus Christ and fighting for our values in our society.”

DeLay then bragged about how, when he was a leader in the House, he “sealed off the rotunda of the Capitol, thinking that, of all people, the leaders of the nation” needed to spend “three hours … on our knees, seeking the face of God and praying.”
