Earlier this month, we noted that former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay had joined one of his “closest friends,” Rick Scarborough of Vision America, for Sunday services at Scarborough’s Texas church. Now, Vision America has helpfully posted the audio of DeLay’s rambling sermon on its website in which he explains that “America was created by God to spread the Gospel; to spread the word of Jesus Christ and to propagate Christianity”:
I know that America was created by God and it was created by God, not for wealth, personal wealth. It wasn’t created by God so that we would have the resources that we now have. It wasn’t even created by God to have the freedom that we have now. America was created by God to spread the Gospel; to spread the word of Jesus Christ and to propagate Christianity. And the reason I know that is because my entire political career is exhibited by that. The Lord walked with me …I came to Christ in the first year in Congress and now I’ve been walking with the Lord [and] he has trained me and showed me why he created this nation: to spread the Gospel.
