Our country was rescued by Divine Providence back during the days of Valley Forge. Now God has removed his blessings and protection from this country, since we (as a country) have indicated that we don’t need or want Him. IMO.
I was at the dinner. Michael Novak (theologian) gave a talk right before Coburn where he talked about Divine Providence. It was powerful. Just before him it was Boon Pickens who was ticked off about the money he blew trying to Republicans elected, although he’s a man who doesn’t let things get him down for long. Coburn was the final talk of the night, ending things on a very somber note.
It was a fun night even though the beef was over done.
