As news of the latest mass shooting spread across the nation, politicians were quick to spread thoughts and prayers for the victims.
We all know it’s the appropriate response to an increasing problem in this nation – mass shootings. Nothing soothes the wounds of a nation like quiet and thoughtful prayer.
Now we have an unexpected problem this nation has to face.
Our politicians are now spending all of their time in thoughts and prayers and they can’t lead the nation anymore. The problem had been building for some time. Years ago mass shootings only happened a few times a year at most – flash forward to 2015 and the number of mass shootings has exceeded the number of days in the year. Our politicians spend all of their time in prayer – nothing else gets done.
“We wanted the Congressman to draft important legislation, but all he does is pray. Since he’s said that praying is the best course of action for every mass shooting nothing else gets done,” said an anonymous staffer.
“We feel very uncomfortable interrupting him, but with all a shooting almost on a daily basis we just have to sit and wait and wait and wait. The budget needs to be addressed, jobs need to be created, but we can’t seem to get time in between shootings.”
Some would say that gun control legislation would be a more effective way to address this nation’s mass shooting problem, but instead our politicians are looking to God to solve the problem.
We’ve had previous Government shutdowns over the budget, but in the future you can expect our Government to come to a standstill while our politicians pray over mass shootings. Before they finish praying about one, there will be another one to start praying over.
