Texas Lt. Gov on how to stop mass shootings: ‘Christians need to take hold of this country through prayer’

During an appearance on Fox News, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said the the problem of mass shootings in America is a “much larger problem” than guns or mental health.

“…we are in a sick society where we are at each other’s throats all the time,” Patrick told Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

“Everywhere you look, whether it’s on the internet, whether it’s any walk of life, people are just at each other every day and we have to ask ourselves who we are, and I believe we’re a nation of godly people, and godly people need to pray,” he continued.

Patrick then cited a bible verse, saying, “Christians have to pray for God to heal our land, and we have to take a stand. If there are some people in this country who are not believers, that’s fine, I respect their right not to believe, but for those of us who are Christians, we need to take hold of our country and we do that through prayer.”

“You cannot change the culture if a country without changing the character of the people, and you just cannot change character without changing a heart, and you can’t do that without turning to God.”
