Tell Speaker Ryan to reinstate Fr. Conroy as House Chaplain

Speaker Ryan,

News broke today that Father Patrick Conroy, the Jesuit priest who serves as Chaplain for the House of Representatives, was fired by you because you were upset that Conroy invited a Muslim cleric to pray on the House floor and that Conroy offered a prayer that "tax reform be fair to all Americans."

It's an absolute absurdity that a Catholic Speaker of the House would fire a Catholic priest for standing up for Gospel values in the halls of Congress.

We implore you to immediately reinstate Father Pat to his position as Chaplain of the House. We won't stand by idly an allow a Catholic politician to disgrace Catholic values in the United States Congress.

  • Firing a Catholic chaplain for a prayer which follows Catholic Social Teaching… and sneaking around the backs of fellow House members when you do it…for shame! Unworthy of a gentleman, let along a member of our government. Severely disappointed in you.
