U.S. Rep. Paul Broun (R-Athens), who delivered the invocation, warned about the future of the U.S.
"We're standing on the precipice, staring down in the deep chasm of socialism and total government control," Broun said. [...]
There are those who wish to destroy the U.S., Broun said, citing radical Islam and "progressives."
"Father, there are many who want to destroy us from outside this nation," Broun said. "Folks like al-Qaeda and the radical Islamists. But there are folks that want to destroy us from inside, the progressives and the socialists, who want to make this nation a nation that's no longer under you, under God, but a nation that's ruled by man."
