Samantha Bee, host of Full Frontal on TBS and former correspondent on the Daily Show, unleashed a biblical tirade against gun violence and those offering prayers with no accompanying action.
“After a massacre, the standard operating procedure is that you stand on stage and deliver some well-meaning words about how we will get through this together, how love wins, how love conquers hate,” Bee said in the anguished opening of her show June 14.
After declaring herself “too angry” to do that, she continued, “Love does not win unless we start loving each other enough to fix our f---ing problems.”
But, she pointed out, our elected officials seem uninterested in doing that.
"We pray after every mass shooting and yet they keep happening," Bee said. "Maybe we’re not praying right. Can we check the instruction manual?"
Then she read from James 2:17: “Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”
“Aww, s---!” Bee said. “We were supposed to do something while we prayed?”
At the end of the segment, she offered up her own prayer, which concluded with a very biblical request for a "plague of boils" to be sent down upon the NRA.
