Paul Ryan fires House chaplain

In the news, Paul Ryan sacks the House's Jesuit chaplain, Pat Conroy ...



So the Jesuit was fired because Ryan believed that by standing up for the poor, Conroy was favoring the Democrat party? No - the priest wasn't advocating a Democratic agenda, he was advocating a Christian agenda. Maybe the next chaplain the Republicans hire should be a priest of Plutus, the Greek god of wealth (think Plutocracy), and then they won't have to worry that his prayers will make them feel guilty.

More on this - The poor don’t have a prayer in today’s Washington: Praying for the poor is now apparently a firing offense in the corridors of power.

I saw a good share on Facebook: "I want to be the kind of Christian Paul Ryan would fire."

Hi Katherine. Yes, so ironic that Ryan and the Republicans pride themselves on being Christian.
