She was on a mission from God.
The spiritual stenographer who interrupted the House of Representatives vote to pass a bill to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling on Wednesday has offered an explanation for her bizarre rant.
“For the past 2 and 1/2 weeks, the Holy Spirit has been waking me up in the middle of the night and preparing me (through my reluctance and doubt) to deliver a message in the House Chamber,” Dianne Reidy said in a statement to Fox News.
House stenographer Dianne Reidy, seen here being ejected from the House of Representatives after going on a God-themed rant, says she delivered her bizarre diatribe after being spoken to by the ‘Holy Spirit’ for weeks.
“That is what I did (Wednesday) night.”
The 48-year-old Maryland woman surprised Congress when she took the microphone at the podium normally used by the President. The House stenographer then delivered a harsh diatribe about God and Freemasons before being ejected by security.
“He will not be mocked!” she belted out to start off her brief rant. “He will not be mocked!”
Reidy, 48, was defended by her husband, a former pastor, who described his wife as a ‘level-headed’ woman.
As nearby politicians beckoned for her to sit down and the gavel pounded in a demand for order, she refused to yield.
“Don’t touch me,” she snapped at one man who attempted to grab hold of her.
“The greatest deception here is this is not one nation under God. It never was,” she said. “Had it been … the Constitution would not have been written by Freemasons, they go against God. You cannot serve two masters.”
Dianne Reidy spoke of God and Freemasons during her short delivery at the very podium used by President Obama.
Of the 39 men who signed the U.S. Constitution, 13 were reportedly Freemasons.
Her rhetoric ended with: “Praise be to God, you’re Jesus Christ.”
Reidy’s husband, Dan, defended his wife’s ravings.
“My wife is a sweet, level-headed wonderful woman of God,” the former pastor declared to Fox News. “I am proud of her.”
