Let Us Pray for Life and Democracy

Sen. Mike Lee, Republican of Utah, is on a holy tear.

During last week's vice presidential debate, he lectured us on Twitter. The divine lawmaker tweeted about the limited virtues of democracy. He instructed the uneducated masses that democracy is about so much more than counting votes and declaring the candidate with the most votes the winner.

From his heavenly perch, Lee, a God-fearing man, sang from the choir book of conservative theology: Democracy is important, he tweeted and chirped, to the extent that it gives us "liberty, peace and prosperity."

Respecting the will of the people by honoring their vote is a mere inconvenience, he seemed to say.

So Lee didn't work up righteous anger when President Trump and Vice President Pence failed to promise to abide by the decision voters render in the Nov 3 election.

Amen, I heard Trump Republicans and conservatives saying.

Sadly, it turns out the devout Lee was just getting started.

On Oct. 13, at around noontime, I heard him speaking. Or maybe he was thanking the Lord at the televised hearing, which was for the Supreme Court nomination of a sixth Republican judge on the nine-member court. Stacking the courts, indeed!

Please Lord, Lee and the GOP pray, don't strike down any more of our Senate brethren with Covid-19 before the election. We need to put this justice on the court in less than three weeks. She may be needed to rid the earth of Obamacare and abortion.

Of course, the new justice may also be called upon to render a judgment on all of the lawsuits Trump our Savior has promised if the vote count doesn't go his way, bolder members of the chorus may chant out loud.

Infected with Covid-19, Lee appeared in person at the tv hearing. He wasn't Zooming in or appearing as an apparition.

Lee also was not wearing a mask, which is standard practice for Trump and his merry band of liberty-loving buccaneers.

Sanctimonious to his core, Lee said, "The purpose of government is to protect life. That's what it is all about."
