It’s a brand new day in America–and not necessarily a good day for authentic Christians and observant Jews.
As the Muslim enclaves of America grow larger (as a result of immigration, fertile wombs and proselytization) more from their religion are being elected at the state and federal level.
Emboldened by their political power the Muslim politicians are doing what their predecessors have done throughout history: take an unyielding stand for their god and mow down anyone who stands in the way. Indeed, their holy book says,
“Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure,” (Quran 61:4).
“Those who believe do battle for the cause of Allah; and those who disbelieve do battle for the cause of idols. So fight the minions of the devil. Lo! the devil’s strategy is ever weak,” (Quran 4:76).
As for multiplying their populace via many babies, the founder of the Palestine Liberation Movement (PLO), Yassar Arafat, once smugly said, “The womb of the Arab woman is my strongest weapon.”
Christianity remains the largest religion in America, but as the number of authentic followers of Jesus levels off, and the Jewish population remains flat, Islam will likely be the second largest religion in America by 2040.
So here’s the story.
Pennsylvania’s first female Muslim lawmaker in the General Assembly accused a Republican colleague of Islamophobia.
“Jesus, you are our only hope,” Rep. Stephanie Borowicz prayed, as she opened the legislative session. “At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus, that you are Lord.”
Borowicz delivered the prayer shortly before Movita Johnson-Harrell — the first Muslim woman elected to the General Assembly — was sworn in.
Johnson-Harrell said the prayer was “highly offensive to me, my guests, and other members of the House.”
In a statement published by the Pennsylvania Capital Star , Johnson-Harrel said she was elected “to help build bipartisanship and collaborations regardless of race or religion to enhance the quality of life for everyone in the Commonwealth.”
A number of Democrats, including House Minority Whip Jordan Harris, accused the Borowicz of weaponizing her religion to “intimidate, demean and degrade” Johnson-Harrell.
“Let me be clear. I am a Christian. I spend my Sunday mornings in church worshiping and being thankful for all that I have,” Harris told PennLive.com. “But in no way does that mean I would flaunt my religion at those who worship differently than I do. There is no room in our Capitol building for actions such as this, and it’s incredibly disappointing that today’s opening prayer was so divisive.”
(Just wondering if Mr. Harris is one of those Sunday-go-to-meeting-only type “Christians”).
So you tell me, how much does this prayer offend you? As you know, I’m a Jewish guy who believes in the Torah, Prophets, Writings, and the Gospels. I think this prayer lines up with God’s Word perfectly.
“Jesus, I thank you for this privilege Lord of letting me pray God. That, I, Jesus am your ambassador today. Standing here representing you – the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Great I Am, the One who is coming back again, the one who came, died and rose again on the third day. I’m so privileged to stand here today. So thank you for this honor, Jesus.
“God, for those that came before us like George Washington in Valley Forge and Abraham Lincoln who sought after you in Gettysburg and the Founding Fathers in Independence Hall – Jesus – that sought after you and fasted and prayed for this nation to be founded on your principles and your words and your truths.
“God forgive us. Jesus we’ve lost sight of you. We’ve forgotten you, God, in our country. And we are asking you to forgive us, Jesus. Your promise in your word says if my people who are called by name will humble themselves and pray and seek your face and turn from their wicked ways that you’ll heal our land. Jesus, you are our only hope.
“God , I pray for our leaders – Speaker Turzi, Leader Culter, Governor Wolf, President Trump. Lord, thank you that he stands beside Israel unequivocally Lord. Thank you that – Jesus – that we are blessed because we stand by Israel and we ask for the peace of Jerusalem as your word says God.
“We ask that we not be overcome by evil and that we overcome evil with good in this land once again. I claim all these things in the powerful, mighty name of Jesus, at the name of Jesus every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that you Jesus are lord. In Jesus name Amen.”
Some Pennsylvania Democrats were totally triggered by the prayer. Democrat Rep. Margo Davidson (who claims to be an evangelical Christian) shouted “objection” near the end of the lawmaker’s prayer. She said the prayer should have been more “inclusive.”
2040 is only 21 years away.
