Whitmer Mocks Catholic Devotional in Tweet

January 6 2021

LANSING, Mich., January 6, 2021 – In a tweet posted by Governor Whitmer this morning, she displayed a catholic prayer candle which replaced the religious figure with Democrat Georgia activist Stacy Abrams. These candles are traditionally used by Catholics in prayer to ask for the intercession of a particular saint.

“As a Catholic, I am insulted that Governor Whitmer would mock such an important religious symbol to make a political statement.” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “I wish I could say I expected more from Governor Whitmer, but unfortunately her term as Governor is rife with these type of political stunts, and poor attempts at humor. The Governor owes Michigan’s 2 million Catholics an apology.”
