(RNS) — The impeachment process is getting biblical. Literally.
Perhaps it all started a few days before the impeachment vote, when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told journalists that she had been praying for president Donald Trump and rebuked a reporter who asked if she hated the commander in chief.
“I don’t hate anybody,” she said, explaining that her feelings were a byproduct of her Catholic faith.
Or perhaps the God talk really began in earnest during the debate before the House of Representatives made its historic decision to impeach Donald Trump last Wednesday (Dec. 18) when Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Georgia, compared the president to Jesus Christ.
“Pontius Pilate afforded more rights to Jesus than the Democrats have afforded this president and this process,” he said.
