Morgan Griffith: "I'm More Christian than You Are"

Yesterday House Majority Leader Morgan Griffith issued the following statement in response to recent guidance from state police superintendent Col. W. Steven Flaherty. The guidance requests that police Chaplins comply with a recent court ruling and refrain from using direct references to Christianity in their prayers.

"For those of us who understand the importance of religion in American life and value the free expression of religion as one of our essential rights, the Kaine administration’s directive is disappointing and disheartening."

Reading this quote, it is impossible not to wonder if the Sanctimonious Mr. Griffith somehow missed an important lesson on the Ten Commandments, particularly the 7th one.
