"Mr. Chairman, the long war on Christianity in America continues today on the floor of the House of Representatives. It continues unabated with aid and comfort to those who would eradicate any vestige of our Christian heritage being supplied by the usual suspects -- the Democrats. [...] Like a moth to a flame, Democrats can't help themselves when it comes to denigrating and demonizing Christians." [House floor, 20-Jun-2005]

At one point, Rep. John "Jack" Murtha, D-Pa., wandered across the aisle, put his imposing, former Marine's frame just behind the seated Hostettler and said that he goes to church as often as Hostettler does. Pointing into Hostettler's face, Murtha, a Vietnam veteran, kept repeating: "Ever been to combat? Ever been to combat?" Hostettler stayed seated and Murtha walked away, visibly scowling.
