"I'm driven to prayer many, many times every day," said Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C. "Sometimes on my knees, sometimes just walking to meetings. I believe prayer can change things." (Quoted here)

Foxx's newfound religiosity is truly arresting in its calculation. The "look-at-me-I'm-praying" press releases, and the showing up on Capitol Hill as part of the "prayer caucus," while consistently voting against anything that does any ordinary citizen any good ... just how convenient is that?

She said she'd pray for Hurricane Katrina victims, but she wouldn't vote for the Katrina relief bill.

Couldn't find it in God's will to vote to raise the minimum wage, or to lower the interest rate on student loans, or to extend the Voting Rights Act.

I don't know about you, but my Mama taught me to be suspicious of a "Christian" who was constantly telling you how righteous she was while displaying deeds that suggested a very different set of masters from the Prince of Peace.
