How is this guy’s prayer not an abomination?
Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver, before he closed his Congressional prayer with the absurd “Amen–and a woman”, also spoke these words.
“We ask in the name of the monotheistic God, Brahma–” Brahma is a god in the polytheistic Hindu pantheon–“and God known by many names and faiths” (https://thefederalist.com/2021/01/06/why-amen-and-a-woman-is-far-worse-than-it-might-seem/).
What does God say?
“I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images” (Isaiah 42:8).
It’s dangerous to hand a country over to fools and criminals, but that’s exactly what we’ve done, and we will surely suffer for it. The United States might not survive as anything more than a name on a map. We hear God’s name bandied about among bubbling inanities–and no one protests, no one minds. We ask Him to stand up for us, but do we stand up for Him?
No. We trot out “Clergy for Choice,” as if we were daring Him to smite us.
Well, maybe He has.
