Representative Nancy Mace Foregoes Fornication To Attend Prayer Breakfast
Politicians of all stripes are known for using the Christian faith as a tool to lure voters who buy into their political platform, believing that the perceived sincerity of a politician who claims to be a Christian must mean that the platform of that politician is also Christian. Nancy Mace is such a politician.
Mace, a politician who prominently displays her Christian label to attract conservative South Carolina voters, straddles the fence on such issues as LGBTQ rights and abortion. Mace was one of 31 Republicans who voted for the LGBTQ Business Equal Credit Enforcement and Investment Act. This bill provides for the collection of loan data intending to provide equitable lending outcomes to LGBTQ-owned businesses.
Mace was the lone co-sponsor of the Serving Our LGBTQ Veterans Act, legislation that would create a special center that would cater to the delusions of LGBTQ-identifying individuals within the Department of Veterans Affairs. When it comes to abortion legislation, Mace is in favor of splitting the baby down the middle, claiming that she is opposed to abortion, but insists on rape and incest exceptions for all abortion legislation, regardless of the stage of the pregnancy.
Mace was recently invited to speak at Senator Tim Scott’s annual South Carolina prayer breakfast. The representative began her remarks by stating that her need to be on time for the event was so great that she resisted her fiancée’s seductive moves at the hotel that morning to make it to the event on time.
“When I woke up this morning at 7, I was getting picked up at 7:45. Patrick, my fiance, tried to pull me by my waist over this morning in bed. And I was like, ‘No, baby, we don’t get time for that this morning, I gotta get to the prayer breakfast, and I gotta be on time…and little TMI, but he can wait. I’ll see him later tonight. But I was here early today for you, Tim, and I think everybody was here early for you today.”
Generally speaking, the purpose of organized prayer isn’t to seek the political favor of a higher-level politician, as Nancy Mace admitted in her remarks, but rather to seek the favor of a Holy God. God is truly at the center of genuine prayer. Unfortunately, public prayer is often used as a political prop rather than for its God-intended purpose, that men would repent and align themselves with the will of God.
Confronted with the reality that the idea of her personal admission was not palatable to the conservative evangelical audience that comprised the event, the twice-married and divorced representative went on the defensive, claiming that she was a sinner, but her remarks were only meant as a joke.
Perhaps Mace and all other politicians who claim the name of Christ should consider Jesus’ admonitions on prayer.
“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father, who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”
