Mike Pence Praying

Friday, 13 July 2018

Dear Mr President,

Mike Pence’s Prayer for the little brown invaders:

“O God of Mercy, shed Thy blessings on these pitiable waifs, whom we love as our own – which, of course they could never be, having been raised by heartless parents in a barbarian land.”

O Lord of Hosts, Thou who delivered the Children of Israel out of the Land of Egypt, please deliver these Children of Guatemala, etc. out of this land, before they devour it like those locusts did, as the story goes.

“O All-Seeing God, whose eye is on the sparrow, keep Thy eye especially on the toddlers who have been lost in the System because they do not know their parents’ names – which ICE and DHS and HHS don’t know either because they didn’t think to ask or forgot to write down or thought somebody else took care of the small stuff – and deliver them from care even as Thou didst with Baby Moses – say by having Ivanka find them in the Bullrushes or maybe behind a shelter for homeless people in Chicago.”

“And O Lord of Strength in Suffering, visit these children as they crouch in their cages and make their little hearts strong to face the hardships that lie before them, and pour Thy strength into their little undernourished legs that they may walk all the way back to Honduras or wherever and face the gangs there with fortitude even unto the death.”

“And last, O God of Abraham, remember this Thy servant and breathe Thy spirit into my tight, silent smile over the President’s shoulder and make it seem the strong smile of one who holds his sensitivity in check because he shares the President’s readiness to make tough calls for The Law, even with children – like with Isaac that time, almost – since hard times call for sacrifice, and this is their turn.”

[dc]“B[/dc]ut yet, O God of the Holy Innocents, make it seem the tender smile of one who later – say, when Thou seest fit to smite the President down for his bad optics, and to call this Thy servant to his place – will be seen to have disapproved of these actions all along.”
