GOP Congressman says he speaks for God


GOP Rep. Tim Walberg, of Michigan, gave a speech about abortion on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives where he claimed to use ‘the thoughts of god himself’  on the afternoon of Jan. 15.  Walberg said:

Today Mr. Speaker we sit in a Chamber that has above your rostrum the motto of the United States of America that says ‘In God We Trust’ and so rather than going on with further comments that I would make from my own thoughts I would turn to the thoughts of God himself more specifically words that were uttered by a man, a king, a very wise king who was very human, as well, a king who was classified by God himself as being a man after My own heart. And so what this man would say or would think if he were honored by God with that statement would be something we should hear.

Walberg then closed his speech by reading from the bible, Psalm 139, which does not mention abortion but is a favorite scripture to quote by activists who are anti-choice.
