An Atheist, a Jew, and a Christian Walk Into Fox to Battle Over Religion in Government

Should Senate Chaplain Barry Black have invoked what some believe to be partisan politics in his daily senatorial prayers? That was the question Fox News host Gretchen Carlson posed to a rabbi, a priest, and an atheist (cue “walk into bar” jokes), setting off a battle over the place for religion in government. Chaplain Barry Black has made headlines throughout the government shutdown for his passionate senatorial prayers imploring lawmakers to put aside their pride and “end this madness” with some sort of deal. His sermons even got the SNL treatment this past weekend.
