Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) on Thursday reminded Americans who wrote the Constitution.

“I think we got off that track when we allowed our government to become a secular government, when we stopped realizing that God created this nation, that He wrote the constitution, that’s based on biblical principles,” DeLay said when asked when people stopped doing good for others in the name of God on “The Difference,” a talk show on Global Evangelical Television.

Delay said he was optimistic about the return of faith to America, noting that he encouraged House members to take up Bible studies when he was leader.

“I pray every day for an awakening in this country, and I think it’s coming,” he said.
