A recent court hearing that began and ended with prayer had stunning results.
The words, "The only violence my client saw on Jan. 6 was police officers beating up Trump supporters" as part of the opening remarks of the lawyer for Jenny Cudd sent a shocked silence across the court. Judge Trent McFadden rebuked the government for what he termed as two justice systems: pre- and post-Jan. 6.
"Before Jan. 6 there was one form of justice. For example, the Kavanaugh hearings in the very same building, where people made multiple entrances, caused damage and returned to do more and were not charged," he said.
"I don't remember any such harshness of charges, and I can't remember any such nonviolent activities even being charged," McFadden continued, chastising the government for charging Texas native Cudd with trespassing and other crimes.
The government played selectively edited videos in an apparent effort to try to characterize a homeschooled mother and florist as a terrorist. It pointed to her comments from the Jan. 6 rally regarding her anger at the stolen election as well as her love for President Trump and America.
In the face of a total refusal of the government to reveal any video footage from cameras inside the Capitol, Cudd's defense found footage that clearly revealed both the outside and inside of the Capitol as Cudd entered at a time when police officers were waving people inside.
When Cudd was asked to speak for herself, tears could be heard in the courtroom as she unapologetically defended her actions.
"I was homeschooled, I love God and my country and wanted to protect my country so we will have free and fair elections and will continue to do so," Cudd said.
Stephen Strang, bestselling author of God and Cancel Culture, wrote in God, Trump and the 2020 Election, "a passive church is part of the reason the country is in the mess it's in." His words reflect James 4:17, "Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, it is sin."
The court proceeding not only began with prayer but ended with a prayer of thanksgiving for the amazing turnaround in the case, as the judge ruled for two months' probation, a $5,00 fine and a $20 court fee.
