In these days where far-left members of Congress refuse to denounce Muslim terrorists and our nation has all but forgotten that the fathers of our country founded our wonderful, free states as “one nation, under God,” (not Allah) Christians are now, more than ever in the history of America, feeling truly persecuted.
One man who became victim to the increasing hatred of Christianity amongst certain spheres growing more powerful in our country was Richard Patten – a strong Jesus-follower who had been praying outside the White House and anointing its gates for over a decade when one day last year, Secret Service arrested him!
Watch a video of Patten’s testimony regarding the arrest here:
Patten's story about being arrested at the White House for praying is going viral on social media.

The Daily Caller has more details on Patten's arrest:
Christian worshiper Richard Patten, a Washington, D.C., businessman, regularly prays outside the White House gates.
“I have been praying here at the White House for the last 16 years. The Holy Spirit put a calling on me …” Patten says.
One day, Secret Service arrested him for anointing the gates with holy oil.
“They took me off to jail for the most uncomfortable night I’ve ever had in my life,” Patten said.
