House Speaker Paul Ryan: Praying Is The Right Thing To Do After Mass Shootings Because “Prayer Works”

Those people in Texas were literally praying in church when they were murdered. But prayer totally works.

The Hill reports:

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) in an interview broadcast Monday dismissed criticism of his tweet saying the Texas shooting victims “need our prayers,” arguing “prayer works.”

“It’s disappointing. It’s sad and this is what you’ll get from the far secular left. People who do not have faith, don’t understand faith, I guess I’d have to say,” Ryan told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle” when asked about the criticism.

“And, it is the right thing to do, is to pray in moments like this because you know what? Prayer works.” “And I know you believe that and I believe that,” Ryan told host Laura Ingraham about prayer being effective.

“And when you hear the secular left doing this thing, no wonder you’ve got so much polarization and disunity in this country when people think like that.”
