(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) Arizona state Rep. Stephanie Stahl Hamilton was caught on video removing Bibles from the state’s members-only lounge.
Hamilton was caught removing Bibles from the body’s lounge because the capital police had set up surveillance cameras to determine why all the Bibles had gone missing, according to Arizona’s Family 3 TV.
Hamilton was caught burying one Bible in furniture and hiding another in the member’s fridge.
Arizona’s Family 3 reported that “sources” informed them that Hamilton had made no complaints about the presence of bibles in the lounge to leadership in the legislature.
Hamilton was difficult to reach for comment, according to the Blaze.
A news station tried to contact Hamilton over the videotapes, but could not make contact. When a reporter and cameraman attempted to confront Hamilton about her treatment of the Bible, she walked away without answering.
Hamilton did eventually give a statement on her behavior.
“Just a little playful commentary on the separation of church and state,” she said. “I am a Presbyterian minister so I obviously don’t have a problem with the Bible.”
Travis Grantham, Republican speaker pro tempore, expressed less amusement regarding Hamilton’s behavior.
“When I’m watching that, I’m thinking, ‘Well, this is obviously someone who’s got some purpose and some intent, and they know they’re doing something bad,’” he said. “For an ordained minister to do that, again, it’s nonsensical. I have no clarity as to why it happened.”
