Demonrats are getting crazier and more bizarre by the day.
Yesterday, Democrat Congressman Emanuel Cleaver (Missouri), 76, opened the 117th U.S. Congress with a prayer by dedicating it “in the name of the monotheistic God, Brahama, and god known by many names by many different things.”
Brahama refers to the primary creator god in Hinduism; Cleaver is a a United Methodist pastor.
Cleaver then finished his prayer with “Amen and Awomen.”
The Hebrew word “amen” has nothing to do with men or gender. In English, “amen” means “verily”, “truly”, and “so be it”. “Amen” is also used colloquially to express strong agreement.
2021 is only just beginning, but I think we already have the candidate to rival perennial favorite, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Georgia), for this year’s Dumbest Congresscritter Award.
Losing the 2016 presidential election doesn’t mean Hillary Clinton will disappear.
On the contrary, it appears she will never go away.
In a fawning article in The Atlantic, Aug. 6, 2017, Emma Green reports that at a recent photo shoot for Shillady’s new book, Hillary Clinton told her United Methodist pastor Bill Shillady, who was accused of plagiarism, that she wants to be a preacher:
“Scattered bits of reporting suggest that ministry has always been a secret dream of the two-time presidential candidate: Last fall, the former Newsweek editor Kenneth Woodward revealed that Clinton told him in 1994 that she thought ‘all the time’ about becoming an ordained Methodist minister….
Now, as Clinton works to rehabilitate her public image and figure out the next steps after her brutal November loss, religion is taking a central role. After long months of struggling to persuade Americans that she is trustworthy, authentic, and fundamentally moral, Clinton is lifting up an intimate, closely guarded part of herself. There are no more voters left to lose. In sharing her faith, perhaps Clinton sees something left to win, whether political or personal….
‘Given her depth of knowledge of the Bible and her experience of caring for people and loving people, she’d make a great pastor,’ Shillady told me. No, she probably won’t go to seminary, he said. No, she probably won’t pursue an official lay position in the Methodist church, like deaconess. (I reached out to Clinton’s spokespeople for comment, but didn’t hear back.) ‘I think it would be more of … her guest preaching at some point,’ he said. ‘We have a long history of lay preachers in the United Methodist Church.’”
