Cultural Decline? Rep. Nancy Mace Tells Prayer Breakfast Crowd She Declined Sex with Fiancé to Be on Time
First, three of the smartest people in the world, supposedly, did not know The Lord’s Prayer while competing on Jeopardy. And last week, a member of the United States Congress did not know that it’s inappropriate to make references to sexual activity with her fiancé—not her husband—while speaking at a prayer breakfast. I call this a sign of the times and, specifically, a cultural decline.

Perhaps it’s that lack of praying The Lord’s Prayer, or praying in general, that would allow someone to feel comfortable suggesting she declined sex with her fiancé to make it on time to, of all things, a prayer breakfast. She then suggested that the two of them would later pick things up where they left off. Whatever the reason Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) felt it was okay to tell this story to those in attendance at Sen. Tim Scott’s prayer event, she did just that and chalked it up as simply “a little TMI.” Ya think?!
According to her story, when she woke up that morning, her fiancé, Patrick, attempted to pull her over by her waist in bed, to which she responded, “No, baby. We don’t got time for that this morning. I gotta get to the prayer breakfast, and I gotta be on time.”
Now, I’m not so naive as to think that people who have not given their lives to Jesus are living celibate lives. Nor do I believe that everybody who attends church or a prayer function honors the Lord with their bodies. But I dare say there was a time when those same people would not dare disrespect that sacred gathering by announcing their sin and then laughing about it. There was also laughter in the room, which, I have a feeling, was an uncomfortable reaction to what the congresswoman said. They were probably like, “Did I just hear what I think I heard?” But then again, they may be just as clueless as she.
Not only should no one say what Mace said at a prayer breakfast, but really, no person holding such a high office should be talking about her sex life—or lack thereof that morning.
