Watch: Republican Congressman cries as he begs God to ‘forgive’ America for gay marriage
An emotional Republican Congressman sobbed his way through a speech begging God to forgive the “sins” of equal marriage.
Randy Weber is a member of the United States House of Representatives, and has represented Texas’ 14th congressional district since 2013.
He made an appearance last night at an ultra-conservative religious event, titled ‘Washington – A Man of Prayer’. A video appears below.
At the event, Weber led a prayer begging for God’s “forgiveness” for America’s sins, openly weeping as he addressed same-sex marriage.
He said: “Father, we have trampled on your holy institution of holy matrimony and tried to rewrite what it is and we’ve called it an alternate lifestyle.”
Welling up and beginning to cry, he said: “Father, oh Father, please forgive us!”
The lawmaker continued to sob as he begged for God’s forgiveness for abortion, saying “Father, we’re killing our descendants and we’re calling it a choice. Oh Lord, forgive us.”
He continued: “Lord, forgive our sins. Help us to get back on your path, to a true understanding of ‘blessed is the nation whose god is Lord’.
“Let that please be us. Don’t remove your hand of protection from us, Father, please.
“Forgive us our manifold sins, and bring us back to your mercy, father, I beg of you. I plead with you.”
