The federal shutdown has found its angry prophet. Senate Chaplain Barry Black is usually a calm, pastoral presence on Capitol Hill, doling out spiritual wisdom and moral counsel to his high-powered flock.
But the Seventh-Day Adventist and former Navy rear admiral is mad as hell about the shutdown and hes letting the Senate, and the Lord, know about it.

It’s not the shutdown that’s doing all these shameful things. It’s Obama and his stooges.

I have been able to watch his prayers for a week now and they r so rfavorable towards the Dems. However the House had a Pastor from Bartlesville, OK. that was just as favorable towards Republicans ( he praised the House work). So it seems to go both ways but the Senate pastor is very, very partisan.

It makes more sense to have a chaplain in a brothel.
He’s a retired Admiral - good for him to call them out ...
Wesley Clark’s a retired General. In this case that doesn’t mean squat.
A democrat prayer to a democrat senate.
Wonder what the chaplain prayed in the House?
