House Speaker Paul Ryan claimed on Nov. 6 that “prayer works”in response to mass shootings that have plagued the U.S. more than any other developed nation.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham told Ryan how his tweet for “prayers” after the mass shooting at a Texas church — where people were inside praying — was mocked on social media.
Ryan, who opposes stricter gun laws, claimed that the real problem is that the “far secular Left” doesn’t understand how prayer works. Ryan failed to provide any evidence of his claims:
It’s disappointing. It’s sad, and this is what you’ll get from the far secular Left. People who do not have faith, don’t understand faith, I guess I’d have to say. And it is the right thing to do, is to pray in moments like this, because you know what?
Prayer works. And I know you believe that and I believe that. And when you hear the secular left doing this thing, no wonder you’ve got so much polarization and disunity in this country when people think like that.
