Right-wing commentator Jesse Lee Peterson kicked off his radio show on Friday by again insisting that Democrats who prayed for Rep. Steve Scalise and others who were shot last week are a bunch of frauds because all Democrats really worship Satan.
Peterson was outraged by photos of Democrats and Republicans kneeling together in prayer ahead of the annual congressional baseball game, declaring that “it’s so pitiful to hear people think that the Democrats are united with the Republicans.”
“It was a phony prayer,” Peterson said. “Democrats, liberals do not believe in God. They were praying to their father, the devil.”
“Democrats don’t believe in prayer, they don’t believe in God,” he said. “They took God out of the schools. They took prayer out of the public square … Why are you so impressed with the children of Satan getting down on their knees yesterday, pretending to be praying? They were down on their knees thinking, ‘Lord, I can’t wait until this is over.’ They’re like, ‘Forgive me, Satan. I’m just playing.’ And Satan was like, ‘Oh, okay, I know, I do that all the time.'”
