Congressman Gohmert's Comments Below:
"We have been at war with the very pillars, the very foundation of this country ... and when ... you know ... what really gets me as a Christian, is to see the ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs and then a senseless, crazy act of terror like this takes place.

Well, you know, we don't let ... in fact we've threatened high school graduation participants that if they use God's name that they're going to be jailed, we had a principal of a school, and a superintendent or a coach down in Florida that were threatened with jail because they said the blessing at a voluntary off-campus dinner. I mean, that kind of stuff ... where is God? Where, where? What have we done with God? We told him that we don't want him around. I kind of like his protective hand being present."
