Rep. Mark Pocan challenges the new narrative around the National Prayer Breakfast

Far-right MAGA Christians have already signaled that they’re fine with women and girls being forced to give birth to their rapists’ babies. And they’re more than okay with singing hosannas to a proud p-ssy grabber who made those forced-birthers’ wildest dreams come true in 2022. But they can’t—most of them, anyway—be copacetic with calls to literally kill LGBTQ+ people for existing, can they?

We live in a liberal democracy, after all. For now, anyway. And if you’re going to arrest Elton John for high crimes, it should be for that maudlin “Candle in the Wind” remake, not for being gay. 

And yet we now live in a country where a National Prayer Breakfast that was founded by a virulently anti-LGBTQ+ group—which may still have ties to the event—attracts politicians from both parties and people from all walks of life. And Wisconsin Democrat Mark Pocan, chair of the Congressional Equality Caucus, has some lingering questions about it.
