Christian Lawmakers Group Blames Satan After Twitter Poll Goes Badly Awry

A group ostensibly representing Christian lawmakers launched a poll on Twitter over the weekend asking if America would be better off with more Christians in elected office.

It didn’t go well:



After more than 16,000 replies, the answer was an overwhelming “no,” which received 95.8% of the vote. In response, the group accused “atheists and Satanists” of “religious persecution” for voting in the poll.

Congress is overwhelmingly Christian, far out of proportion with the people they represent. According to a Pew survey last year, the Senate and House are nearly 90% Christian, compared with 65% of America as a whole.

One in four Americans now considers themselves atheist, agnostic or “nothing in particular,” a position publicly held by just one member of the current Congress, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), who lists her religion as “none.” Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.) describes himself as a humanist, while a handful of others haven’t acknowledged a faith or lack thereof.

3. Since Satan is mentioned in the article, the appropriate response would be

Aw, Hell No!

Have any of these jerk-offs heard of Thomas Jefferson?

4. I'm pretty sure they know Satan he sits in the WH and they just acquitted him.

There is not much that happens from the republicans these days that doesn't have Satan taking charge. ignoring the 10 Commandants and the Constitution.

7. Lol. And demons are keeping them from successfully opening email attachments.

They just need to accept that folks are done with their hypocrisy. Doesn’t take a computer guy to figure that out.

9. when you live in a magical world, reality is a real downer

"Religious persecution" - what a joke. How was any single person or group hurt by this poll?

I recommend total days of prayer through the end of the year - especially on November 3rd - to ask gawd to fix this.
