WATCH: Kirsten Gillibrand Preach To Black Folk

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) looked uncomfortable last week while preaching at Al Sharpton's National Action Network's King Day Public Policy Forum on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Key word... Preaching.

"We will wear the belt of truth because we know the truth," Gillibrand yelled to the crowd of Americans of African descent while making awkward gestures. "We speak truth to power. We will put on the bright breastplate of righteousness because we know right from wrong."

(Why? Why do Democrats do this?)

"And we will not forget it," Gillibrand continued. "We will hold that shield of faith, as Dr. King said, faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase. So hold on to that faith tightly."

"We will wield the sword of the spirit, the sword of the spirit is the word of God and the good book promises us the light shines on the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it."

Following her preach speech, Gillibrand tweeted: "I can't think a better place to talk about a vision for our country than with one of the greatest advocates and leaders for social justice in the country today. Thank you for your generosity and friendship, @TheRevAl."
