Conroy back in as House chaplain

The House chaplain has rescinded his resignation and the speaker has sworn him back into office, the Washington Post reports.

Nearly two weeks after controversy surrounding the resignation of House Chaplain Rev. Patrick J. Conroy, he was sworn back into office by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), amid claims by Conroy that his resignation was coerced, according to the report.

Ryan cited a lack of “pastoral services” as the reason for his dismissal, but some lawmakers allege it was for political or religious reasons, the report notes.

The house chaplain is a fine individual. Congress and senate should learn from him regarding integrity, honesty and humility. They wont because they are of a class of lazy worthless self-serving band of inept thugs.
