People were dumbstruck.
@elizabethjdias I’ve never heard a benediction used to curse your enemies like Pastor Mark Burns just did. A true benediction is a blessing.

@rumpfshaker Cardinal Nolan’s in ’12 was far superior. Beseeching God’s blessings while talking about crushing political enemies? Yikes.
