Martin Luther prophecy about Congress

"If you who are assembled in a council are so frivolous and irresponsible as to waste time and money on unnecessary questions, when it is the business of a council to deal only with the important and necessary matters, we should not only refuse to obey you, but consider you insane or criminals."

From Defense and Explanation of All the Articles , pg. 80 of Luther's Works, Vol. 32

Ok, this isn't really a prophesy about Congress, but it is fitting.
