Religion in Politics

Christi Noem: Politicians’ actions must ‘line up with the word of God’ — that’s why I’m bringing back school prayer

During an appearance on the Real America’s Voice network, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem lamented that the actions taken by political leaders “are not biblical,” and said that it’s time everyone takes a look at politicians’ actions to see if they “line up with the word of God.”

“We’ve seen our society, our culture, degrade as we’ve removed God out of our lives,” she continued. “And people become what they spend their time doing. When I was growing up, we spent every Sunday morning … every Wednesday night in church, our church family was a part of our life, we read the bible every day as a family together, and spent time with each other recognizing that we were created to serve others.”

She went on to say that she doesn’t see families emulating the lifestyle she had growing up.

“We in South Dakota have decided to take action to really stand for biblical principles … I have legislation that I’ll be proposing this year that will allow us to pray in schools again. I really believe that focusing on those foundational biblical principles that teach is that every life has value and every person has a purpose, will recenter our kids and help us heal this division that we see taking over our country.”
