Praying For Failure: Fundie Anoints Sotomayor Hearing Room With Oil

On Monday leading evangelical Rev. Rob Schenck crept into the U.S. Senate’s darkened Hart Building to “anoint with oil” the door of the room where the SCOTUS confirmation hearing for Sonia Sotomayor is expected to take place, in order that Congress be struck by the holy spirit and refuse to confirm her.

As I prayed, I touched the doors in three spots, making the sign of the cross. I prayed for God to superintend over the entire confirmation process and mark them with truth because Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life,” and He prayed to His Father, saying, “Thy Word is Truth.” Of course, in the end, we always pray that God’s will be done. There is so much we can do as part of this enormously consequential exercise, including letting our senators know how we feel about this nomination. Nothing, though, is as important as prayer. I invite you to join me in praying as often as you can during the entire hearing process beginning
