The 117th US Congress Prayer ends with “Amen and a Woman” (video)
“It has nothing to do with gender”: Democrat Emanuel Cleaver criticized for ending his prayer in Congress, “awakened” by the words: “Amen and a woman.”
* Emanuel Cleaver said a prayer Sunday to open the 117th Congress.
* In his message he mentioned the Hindu god * Brahma and said “amen and woman.”
Many have criticized the prayer of the “awakened ones”, saying that “amen” is Latin for “so be it.”
* The committee proposed changes to house rules to “respect gender identity”.
Democratic Party spokesman Emanuel Cleaver made a splash by closing the Congressional prayer with the words “amen and woman.”
The Missouri pastor was asked to say a prayer to open the 117th Congress on Sunday, and he decided to give a gender-neutral speech.
But after the video was posted online, many pointed out to Cleaver that amen means “so be it” in Latin and has nothing to do with the genre.
Spokesman Guy Reshenthaler said on Twitter, “This is not a gender word.
“Unfortunately, facts have nothing to do with progressives. Incredible. “
Cleaver also mentioned the Hindu god Brahma when reciting his prayer to Congress.
He said, “We are asking this in the name of the monotheistic god Brahma and the ‘god’ known by many names from different religions.”
“Amen and a Woman.”
