The Alabama Public Service Commission (APSC) last week started a
hearing on power rates with a prayer that asked God for forgiveness
for allowing gay marriage and other “sins.”
Twinkle Cavanaugh, the head of the commission, introduced John
Delwin Jordan, a member of the Prattville Tea Party.
“He's a real role model for me,” Cavanaugh said in introducing
“God we've taken you out of our schools; we've taken you out of
our prayers; we've murdered your children; we've said it's OK to have
same-sex marriage, God. We have sinned. We ask once again to
forgive us for our sins,” Jordan said near the end of his nearly
four-minute prayer. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit

Jordan later testified on behalf of the Prattville Tea Party
before the commission.
