Rocker John Cooper says in a new video that America’s problems cannot be fixed by the politicians in Washington, D.C., but only by the country's citizens turning back to God and the country’s original “moral framework.”
“We have a deep spiritual problem in this country,” Cooper said in the video, posted on Instagram.
The frontman for the Grammy-nominated band Skillet, Cooper, decried the “stupidity” of the culture and said, “It is not something that politics can fix.”
“No politician can fix this. Our politicians are pathetic,” he said. “They've done the most legendary job of screwing up the country and screwing up people and dividing everybody on the Right and the Left. ... They cannot fix what is going on.”
America, he said, has “turned our backs on God.”
Sen. Tim Scott (R- S.C.) has been awarded the 2023 Distinguished Christian Statesman Award for his work and commitment to Christian values while he works in politics.
Scott received the award this week at a presentation at the D. James Kennedy Center for Christian Statesmanship in Washington, Religion News Service reports.
“The future of our nation depends in large part on the character and integrity of our leaders,” said Dr. Rob Pacienza, Senior Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and President and CEO of D. James Kennedy Ministries. “We are grateful for Sen. Scott’s commitment to stand boldly for truth and righteousness in his service to God and our nation and are honored to present him with this year’s Distinguished Christian Statesman Award.”
