Placeholder Image
WASHINGTON -- Given the cornucopia of issues Americans have to select from each day, the recent firing and rehiring of the House of Representatives’ chaplain may not have bestirred many to form an opinion. But these days, the Hill is alive with buzz as people absorb the odd goings-on between House Speaker Paul Ryan, who pushed the chaplain to resign, and the Rev. Patrick Conroy himself, who later withdrew his resignation, and Ryan’s acceptance of what appears to be pastoral bullying. Stranger things will happen before sundown -- and incredulity is no stranger to this town.
