New York Daily News reporters went to church on Sunday with disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who is seeking the redemption brand as he runs for mayor of New York City.

Pastor Phil Craig, it appears, welcomed the candidate with open arms to the Greater Springfield Memorial Church in Queens:

Weiner picked the modest church with about 30 people in the pews for his Sunday morning debut over the megachurches that are often popular campaign stops. Pastor Phil Craig welcomed Weiner with notes of redemption.

“I made mistake after mistake,” he said in introducing the candidate. “Moses wasn’t qualified … Ezekiel wasn’t qualified. Peter wasn’t qualified.”

Wiener explained to the congregation that God was like a “GPS” reminding him when he was off the right path.
