WASHINGTON — If the solution to the dysfunctional Congress can be found in any book, it might just be the Good Book.
A Mississippi lawmaker sent a copy of the Holy Bible to all 535 members of the House and Senate in an attempt to provide the historically unproductive Congress with some divine guidance.
Rep. Steven Palazzo, who is a member of the Republican leadership’s whip team, delivered the book with a brief personal message.
“On a daily basis, we contemplate policy decisions that impact America’s future. Our staffs provide us with policy memos, statistics and recommendations that help us make informed decisions. However, I find that the best advice comes through meditating on God’s Word,” Palazzo wrote, according to Talking Points Memo, which obtained a copy of the letter.
“Please find a copy of the Holy Bible to help guide you in your decision-making,” he continued, calling it an “inspirational and informational resource.”
Lawmakers will have plenty of time to study the Bible’s discourses on avarice, sloth, vanity and depravity. The letter went out Tuesday — right before the start of a monthlong congressional recess.
Palazzo said a constituent from his district paid for the Bibles.
