    Conservative Reps Say God Told Them To Spare Boehner From Coup

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) survived a potential coup from his own caucus in January due to what some conservative lawmakers are attributing to divine intervention.
    After Boehner's fiscal cliff negotiations rankled many Republicans in the House, talk turned to possibly replacing the Ohio Republican. But, according to a report published online Monday in the Washington Post, the effort "quickly fell apart when several Republicans, after a night of prayer, said God told them to spare the speaker."
    Rep. Steve Southerland II (R-FL) told the Post that he read the Old Testament the night before the vote for the speakership.

    A clever way of saying I was promised some kickbacks if I voted the right way.

    Clearly you don't believe in God.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Your evidence that this was the case and God is not the one who told them? I mean God may have to speak directly to people now just to avoid all the political spying the current Administration is doing on everybody these days in the name of "national security".

    Honestly. We wonder why the republican party is full of so many loons? Walking around suggesting they "talk to God" and got answers.
