**BREAKING** ‘This is not one nation under God’: House stenographer taken from the floor after bizarre outburst
[quote]He will not be mocked. He will not be mocked. The greatest deception here is this is not one nation under God. It never was. It never was. Had it been, it would not have been — the Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons. They go against God. You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve two masters. Praise be to God, lord Jesus Christ.

The updates to that post are the best part!
Update, 11:17 p.m. EST: The Associated Press reported that the woman made her way to the rostrum during the House vote on an agreement to end the government shutdown. Rep. Julian Castro (D-CA) reportedly told the AP the woman had a “crazed look on her face.” She was described as a longtime employee of the House.
Update, 11:49 p.m. EST: The Atlantic identified the woman as Dianne Reidy. Also, Fox News congressional correspondent Chad Pergram reported that, after being interviewed by Capitol police, Reidy was taken to a local hospital for a mental evaluation.
It's fun watching white conservatives slowly lose their shit as they see brown people and homos taking over the world.
So now even the support staff on Capitol Hill are batshit fundies.
I'm devastated there are no reports of guillotines being constructed on the mall. Surely these crazies would be happier going beneath the blade than watching their "Tara" burn to the ground with all their jewels and corsets being transformed into ash.
There's Something Wrong with Aunt Dianne
That's soon "Dianne Reidy, Fox 'News' Commentator.'
What kind of health insurance does she have?
was it Millie?
Gargoyles! Psychics! Everything's Ungodly! Dork-sided! In Jesus's Name I Pray!
She was totally normal and healthy. This was a normal response to what has been happening in D.C. over the last 2 weeks. Watch the news now and then.
Can you imagine the horror? Seriously. It's been disgusting for those of you who have been too busy watching Real Housewives.
I did not approve that message. I wished my believers would just run things pass me first. Gawd!
Fuck this idiot fundie asshole. Another site I read was all, "poor woman, how dare we make fun of or criticize the mentally ill". Please. These types choose their own delusions. She and her wacko husband are basking in the attention. What is it with this country that it is chock full of these willfully stupid cave dwelling morons?
Oh jeez. I hadn't heard the latest. She sent an explanatory e-mail to Fox.

So she had had a post-partum depression after the birth of her twins. She had been waking up during the middle of the night for four weeks to read the bible saying she had been awakened by the holy spirit and spoken to. It sounds like a hypomanic episode with religious delusions. Yet most, or a least a substantial amount, of the commentary I've read says it's an insult to invoke mental illness to explain what she did (seeing how it's perfectly justified and everything). A substantial number of people really believe it's a message from god. SMH.
Ted Cruz claimed his latest victim.
She doesn't know anything about the Freemasons, does she?
R15: You're right. These people are not "mentally ill" per se because they don't fit into any DSM description and unlike most "mentally ill" people, most of them can hold down jobs; they usually get hired over the more qualified gays and atheists. They choose to believe in things that aren't true and bully people who see through it and call them out on it. The only word to describe such a belief system is "evil."
All religious people are mentally ill. Think of this as the equivalent of a herpes flareup.
She had to have been a fundie before her epuside and the slept deprivation and post partum caused the outburst .
I love you, R11.
I think the stenographer got the cup of coffee someone meant for Boehner. Oh well.
The most disturbing aspect of this story is that her husband, A MAN OF CHRIST FOR CHRIST'S SAKE, said the following:
“If she had told me, ‘I think God wants me to get up and say something,’ I’d be the first one to say, ‘No you don’t!’”
So he would've told his wife to DISOBEY GOD!
The blasphemy! The sacrilege!
