Jody Hice Links Penn State Abuse To Separation Of Church And State

Back in 2011, Georgia pastor and GOP politician Jody Hice appeared on the End Times radio broadcast “Trunews” to discuss the Penn State abuse scandal, which he blamed on the end of government-organized school prayer.

Hice, who is now the GOP nominee for the Republican-leaning U.S. House seat being vacated by far-right Rep. Paul Broun, told host Rick Wiles that the Penn State scandal was a result of America having “kicked the Bible out of schools and then prayer out of schools. We’ve just basically been going downhill since then and you get what you get [when] you kick God out.”

Hice has similarly claimed that the Aurora and Virginia Tech massacres were the fault of evolution and abortion rights and tied the Sandy Hook shooting to the separation of church and state.
