praying @ the Capitol ...and on Colbert, and at Burger King

"Jesus even makes fun of how men pray. Jesus, the One in whose name we pray, during His incarnate ministry, leveled the guns of satire at those who sought to 'have a witness' by praying openly in restaurants so that people could see how holy they were.
Jesus told us not to pray so that men could see us,

which we have interpreted as a call to hold prayer vigils on the Capitol steps,
so that Congress will stop disobeying what Jesus said not to do" (Mt.6:5)
