Amen Ben Shapiro Biblical hebrew emanuel cleaver Gender inclusive house democrats Intelwars Prayer

House Democrat ends prayer with ‘amen and a-woman,’ gets destroyed when Ben Shapiro explains the meaning of ‘amen’

In a demonstration of political correctness run amok, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) offered the opening prayer of the 117th Congress on Sunday — ending the invocation with “amen and a-woman.”

Cleaver’s shocking choice of words came after Democrats proposed eliminating all “gendered” language from the House rules, instead opting for “gender-inclusive” language. Cleaver’s decision to end the prayer with supposed gender inclusivity was no doubt a nod to his party’s genderless agenda.

What did Cleaver say?

Not only did Cleaver conclude the prayer with an unorthodox, supposed gender-inclusive ending, the entire prayer was riddled with politically correct statements.

In fact, Cleaver, despite being an ordained Methodist minister, appeared to endorse universalism or omnism, the idea that all religions lead to the same deity.

“We ask [these things] in the name of the monotheistic god, Brahma, and god known by many names by many different faiths. Amen and a-woman,” Cleaver said to end the prayer.


Daily Congress Prayer, January 3, 2021, House guest chaplain Emanuel Cleaver: “A-man. And A-Woman.”

What was the reaction?

Cleaver was widely denounced for the prayer, not only because of its politically correct nature, but because his ending was not congruent with grammar.

As Ben Shapiro, an orthodox Jew, explained, the common ending used to finish prayers — “amen” — is a biblical Hebrew word that communicates affirmation or support and, in the context of prayer conclusion, means “may it be so.”

“‘Amen’ is a Biblical Hebrew word: ???. It is a word simply meaning ‘may it be so.’ It has nothing to do with the word ‘man’ or ‘woman’ because it is FROM HEBREW,” Shapiro reacted. “This is some of the dumbest s*** I have ever seen in my life.”

In fact, biblical Hebrew is an inflected language, meaning grammatical gender is built into the language system. Grammatical gender is completely unrelated to human gender.

For example, the Hebrew word meaning “heavens/sky” is grammatically masculine, while the word meaning “earth/land” is grammatically feminine.

Grammatical gender is often a difficult concept for native English speakers to grasp because modern English is an analytical language, meaning English uses word order, prepositions, verbal voice, and other features to discern syntax and understand meaning. Old English and Middle English, however, were inflected languages, and some of the case and verb conjugation features have been retained in modern English. Some examples of this are when we add an “-s” to the end of most nouns to denote plurality, or when we add “-ed” to the end of most verbs to communicate past tense.

On the other hand, inflected languages, also known as “synthetic languages,” use case, grammatical gender, verbal conjugations, and other morphological changes to discern syntax and meaning.

attack attacks Coronavirus death Covid death Crime Faith Intelwars Prayer

Elderly man with COVID bludgeoned to death by roommate for praying

An elderly California man dealing with COVID-19 was bludgeoned to death by a roommate for praying.

An 82-year-old Latino man was being treated for coronavirus at the Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster in Southern California. The elderly man was sharing the hospital room with a 37-year-old man who was also diagnosed with COVID-19.

The older hospital patient “leaned on his Catholic faith and began to pray,” according to
The Washington Post. The BBC reported, “Jesse Martinez became upset when the 82-year-old man sharing his hospital room started praying, according to Los Angeles police.”

Martinez allegedly used an oxygen tank to beat to death the elderly man in his hospital bed on Dec. 17, at approximately 9:45 a.m. The victim died the following day.

“He then struck the victim with an oxygen tank,” according to the
statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau.

The two men did not know each other before being assigned to the same hospital room, and authorities did not know why Martinez murdered the man for praying.

Martinez was arrested and charged with murder, a hate crime enhancement, and elder abuse. His bail is set at $1 million. He is being held at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility. Martinez is scheduled to appear in Antelope Valley Court on Dec. 28.

The investigation is on-going.

Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris (R) was ”
shocked and saddened” to hear about the man’s death, and said in a statement, “These families were already experiencing a hardship and now this — it’s senseless.”

2020 presidential election Faith George Washington Intelwars Prayer Thanksgiving Thanksgiving 2020

Thank you, almighty God, for your blessings this Thanksgiving

This year, Thanksgiving Day falls on Thursday the 26th of November, marking 231 years to the exact date of the first Thanksgiving Day proclaimed by President George Washington. Forgive the cliche of quoting from Washington’s proclamation, but the simple fact is Washington issued a near-perfect statement of how Americans ought to think about the Thanksgiving holiday, and it’s worth honoring by remembrance.

A mere three paragraphs, Washington’s proclamation begins with an acknowledgement, the proclamation itself follows, and the president concludes with a request for the American people.

First, Washington acknowledges it is “the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor.” These days, Americans are very fond of demanding that government protect our various and innumerable rights. Undoubtedly, the purpose of just government is to secure the rights and liberties of its citizens. But a system of self-government such as we have will fail and will be unjust if the people, who are sovereign, do not recognize their duties. We each have a duty to our neighbors to respect their rights. We have a duty to follow just laws. To be good citizens. To be kind to one another, to serve each other, to help those in need, and for Washington, to be thankful for God’s provisions and to pray for his protection and favor.

In recognition of this duty, Washington proclaims “Thursday the 26th day of November next” to be a day for “the People of these States” to devote to God. Americans are to thank Him, “the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be” for “his kind care and protection,” for his mercy during the Revolutionary War, for the “tranquillity, union, and plenty” which followed, for “the peaceable and rational manner” in which the new American government was established, and “for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed,” the “means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge,” and also for “all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.”

These blessings here recounted are permanent things. Americans continue to enjoy the goodness God has shown to our forefathers, which speaks of God’s eternal nature. The sovereign King of Heaven, in His boundless mercy, saw fit to permit a rag-tag assembly of English colonists to overthrow the most powerful empire on earth and raised up wise political leaders to frame a Constitution that’s lasted for 233 years — a Constitution that to this day protects your rights and liberties and enables you to read this article in the safety of your own home, surrounded by family and friends and delicious food that, Lord willing, will last for several days.

And for those less fortunate, who may lack family or friends and food, did God not provide a country with many who can share with their countrymen? It is a great sin and transgression indeed for those of us who can share to neglect our duties to those who lack.

Yet sin is a reality we all must confront. People treat each other wickedly. We are unkind in our words. We are hateful and murderous in our thoughts. We are greedy, selfish, and self-serving, neglectful and thoughtless of those in need. We are proud and boastful, yet who can truly say they’ve always done right and never harmed another by word or deed? We lie to each other. We only love those who love us first, and even then we love poorly. We are unforgiving. And we’re too often ungrateful.

This is why, in the third paragraph, Washington requests that the American people “unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions.”

The greatest blessing freely offered by God to man is pardon for our sins. God offers forgiveness for all the wrongs we’ve done to Him and to each other to those who repent. Once free of our individual and national sins, He enables us “whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed.”

So giving thanks to God doesn’t simply involve thankful prayer, though that is important and necessary! It also involves obedience to His will, which is “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” and “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” We must repent of our sins toward one another and pray for forgiveness. We must love each other by performing our duties as citizens, which is to act righteously, to obey just laws, to respect each other, to help and support each other, both publicly and privately.

As Thanksgiving Day 2020 approaches, I cannot help but think of the hostility too many Americans feel towards one another after a contentious and divisive presidential election. I know this as truth: The anger, frustration, and anxieties felt by Americans on both the left and the right are the consequences of sin. No one is blameless. We have all sinned. If we loved each other as we ought, if we performed our duties as citizens to each other as we ought, would any right-thinking person be outraged or anxious about the White House changing parties for four short years?

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for a God who loves us and offers forgiveness for our sins. I am thankful for a God who listens to and answers prayer. I’m thankful that God rules in heaven, that all authority on earth is on loan from Him, and that He will enact justice when we will not, no matter who occupies the presidency. I am thankful for a God who taught us, when we pray, to ask for our “daily bread,” reminding us that we are to rely on Him for His provisions each day and that we ought not to worry about tomorrow. I am thankful for a country and a Constitution that protect my right to worship this God. And it’s my intention and earnest prayer that in showing my gratitude, I fulfill my duty as an American citizen and a patriot to love my neighbors, as God commands.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” — Philippians 4:6-7

America Anti-christian anti-Trump Arrests Donald Trump Intelwars knife Prayer Texas

Knife-wielding man threatens ‘prayer group for President Trump,’ throws eggs at victims, police say. Two women scream at group, too.

Police in Harlingen, Texas — a city near the southernmost tip of the state and just a few miles from the Mexican border — said they received a call about a person with a knife Friday afternoon.

What happened?

When officers arrived at the scene, witnesses said “a prayer group for President [Donald] Trump” was meeting on a grass lot when a man later identified as John Rivas, 20, began throwing eggs at the group. Police said when the group asked Rivas to stop, he pulled out a knife.

Rivas left the area before officers arrived, but police added that they quickly located and arrested him for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. During his arrest, police said Rivas began resisting by stiffening his body and refusing to place his hands behind his back. Cops added that after a brief struggle, Rivas was taken into custody without injury. Police said they also charged Rivas with resisting arrest and disruption of meeting — and that they recovered a brown serrated kitchen knife believed to have been used by Rivas.

Police also said two women,19-year-old Marilyn Lopez and 18-year-old Miliannie X. Ortiz-Ruiz, who were with Rivas during the incident, were arrested for disruption of meeting. Cops added that Lopez and Ortiz-Ruiz were screaming insults at the crowd during their investigation.

Police said Rivas was slapped with a $30,000 bond for his aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge — a second-degree felony — as well as a $2,500 bond for resisting arrest and a $500 bond for disruption of a meeting, both misdemeanors. An official with the Cameron County Detention Center told TheBlaze on Wednesday that there was no record of Rivas being booked into the facility, and police added to TheBlaze that Rivas likely bonded out.

As for Lopez and Ortiz-Ruiz, police said they were given $500 bonds for disruption of a meeting and were released on their own recognizance.

Folks react

On the police department’s Facebook post about the arrests, several commenters took issue with police characterizing the prayer gathering as focused on Trump.

“I don’t know where your department got the idea that this was a Trump group,” one person noted. “There were people from several churches there worshipping and praying for our great country. Period.”

Another commenter said “I’m glad you guys arrested them; we have to show people like this that we don’t deal with that down here in the valley. But they weren’t gathering for Trump ….so before you label this about Trump (which the media will use to make people hate on them and feel sorry for the kids) just remember that the people at the gathering AND Trump supporters support law-enforcement 100%. By the way, we all do support Trump but still it has nothing to do with that …just saying lol.”

2020 presidential election Intelwars Joe Biden Phil Robertson Prayer President Donald Trump

Phil Robertson shares powerful prayer for Trump to be re-elected as president

“Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson, an outspoken Christian commentator, author, and BlazeTV host, says it’s important for Christians to hold fast to prayer during the 2020 presidential election and its ongoing fallout over vote counting.

Robertson in August published a new book, “Jesus Politics: How to Win Back the Soul of America.”

What are the details?

Robertson on Wednesday shared a now-viral video of him praying for President Donald Trump’s re-election.

The 74-year-old dynamo — an avid Trump supporter — captioned the video, “We’re at a crossroads. Here’s my prayer today for our country and our president.”

In the video, Robertson says, “Here in America, many of our people, Father, have fallen the ways of the evil one. I pray that you give us time to repent as a nation to turn back to you, Father. My prayer is that you be with one Mr. Donald J. Trump. You know him, Father. We started with him early. We told him what you told us to tell him — that Jesus died for him, was raised from the dead. I would pray, Father, give us four more years with him.”

He concluded, “Help us, Father. Protect us from the evil one each and every day we live.”

At the time of this writing, Fox News reports that Democratic nominee Joe Biden has 264 of 270 votes to win. Trump has just 214.

Jesus politics

Ahead of the election, Robertson tweeted that his followers should “vote Godly.”

The accompanying photo read, “Vote for leaders who will promote religious liberty, protect our rights to practice Christianity in every public square, and live lives aligned with Jesus politics.”

‘Caustically brilliant’

In August, Robertson described Trump as “caustically brilliant.”

“I’m a Trump supporter. I weigh a man in politics, I judge them by what they’ve done,” Robertson said at the time. “That’s how I judge them politicians. I preached the gospel to Donald J. Trump. He’s heard the good news because I told him. He listened.

“My definition for him in two words,” Robertson added. “This is what seems to fit the way he rolls: caustically brilliant. Now you can get on both sides of that. You can accentuate the caustic part of a man, or you can look at irregardless the caustic nature of some of his wordage, he’s brilliant.”

Robertson said that Trump is also “remarkably shrewd.”

“He is remarkably shrewd when it comes to his policy. It’s remarkable,” Robertson noted. “I’ve never seen a president get that much done in the face of this much blowback and opposition. I’ve never seen a guy do what this dude has done.”

cancer Conservatives Intelwars Prayer Rush Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh lauds the power of prayer as he delivers a sobering update on his cancer battle

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, 69, says that he is leaning on God’s blessings amid his battle with lung cancer.

What are the details?

Limbaugh, who announced he had advanced lung cancer earlier this year, said that his latest bout of treatment has rendered him “virtually worthless.”

Despite being beaten down by aggressive treatment, Limbaugh said that everything in his life is a blessing — including “just waking up.”

“There have been many cycles, but this is the third wave, and this current wave, I have to tell you, is kicking my ass,” he said during a Tuesday broadcast of his nationally syndicated show.

Limbaugh said that he’s only had energy to rest, relax, and recuperate from the treatment.

“Every day, I wake up and the first thing I do is thank God that I did,” he said. “Just waking up is a blessing.”

The radio host said that he is being sustained these days by prayers.

“I know many of you are praying daily and nightly,” he said. “I happen to believe that [prayers] work. I believe that they are sustaining me, and I pray for the energy to be able to do this. … I have to be honest: I do not have the energy that I used to have.”

What about the radio show?

He added that is he well aware of the fact that he may not be able to continue his regular radio show.

“My attitude is this — and the reality is — the day is gonna come where I’m not gonna be able to be here,” Limbaugh said. “I don’t know when that is, and I’m hoping that it is months, years. I’m hoping that the current cycle [of treatment] that we’re in does its magic and starts working on the tumor as the clinical trial drugs did. But regardless, the day is gonna come where it isn’t gonna be possible to be here every day, and who knows? It may not be possible to be here for three hours a day.

“Any chance to do the show,” he continued, “I’m gonna take it.”

Christianity Faith Fox News Intelwars Prayer Shannon Bream

Fox News’ Shannon Bream shares what life is like as a cable news host and reveals why she starts every day with prayer and the Bible

Shannon Bream is a talented journalist who has a penchant for asking insightful questions. The “Fox News @ Night” anchor is also a faithful Christian with a unique worldview that sets her apart from many of her media peers.

Bream, a trained attorney, recently told “The Billy Hallowell Podcast” that she’s a “news junkie” who has been on-air at Fox since 2007. In addition to describing her career path, the popular anchor explained that she finds daily comfort in her faith.

“We’re all a work in progress … I’ve been through wonderful highs and terrible lows like we all do in our life,” Bream said. “Through the toughest things is where my faith has become the most personal and has grown the most.”

She added, “It’s a daily comfort and a strength for me to spend time with the Lord.”

Listen to Bream share her faith and life story:

Bream said she starts every day with Bible reading — something that helps her stay centered.

“I have to get grounded,” she said, noting that she journals and prays every morning before she dives into the chaos of the day. “I am not equipped to handle it myself.”

Bream noted that her faith was rooted early on. Her mother taught at the Christian school she attended, and the family social circle was the local church and school.

But it wasn’t until middle school that Bream said she made a decision for herself.

“Have I ever made this personal?” she recalled asking herself at the time. “Have I really committed my life to Christ and accepted him as my savior?”

Bream accepted Christ at that point and the rest is, well, history. She went on to practice law before transitioning into media.

And she’s now encouraging others to find their passion areas and move forward into them.

“I’ve always been a very curious person … I think we’re all born with different gifts and different passions and different skills,” she said. “We should encourage people whatever their gifts are … to go into that field and be a light.”

Bream also discussed some of the battles she’s faced in her own life, including her now-husband’s brain tumor battle before their marriage — a challenge that she said “put everything into perspective.”

“Thank God he is wonderful and healed,” she said, noting that the couple is grateful to have come out on the other side of that battle.

Listen to Bream tell her story here.

Meghan McCain refuses to host ‘The View’ with Elisabeth Hasselbeck over her coronavirus prayer comments

Meghan McCain said that she would refuse to co-host “The View” with Elisabeth Hasselbeck because of her comments telling people to pray against the coronavirus pandemic.

McCain made the comments on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”

“Somebody actually sent me a screenshot of my face when she said that,” McCain said to Cohen.

“I took this virus seriously from the very beginning, and I thought a lot of this rhetoric was really dangerous. I think it’s really, really unfortunate and dangerous that she said that,” she added.

Hasselbeck had returned to the show in early March and commented that people needed to pray against the coronavirus in addition to taking personal precautions.

“I think there can be a fine line between what is precaution, what is taking precaution, and what is panic,” said Hasselbeck on the previous show. “Yes, we’re going to take precautions, we’re going to Purell, pray that God’s got us in our tomorrows. We pray that this coronavirus is extinguished, that it stops in its tracks.”

McCain can be seen in the video grimacing at Hasselbeck’s comment.

Later McCain accused her of putting out misinformation about coronavirus.

“I don’t need to co-host with her again, and it’s unfortunate, because I’ve been a huge fan for a long time,” McCain said. “Anybody who is screwing around with this virus and putting out sort of misinformation, I don’t really have a lot of time for right now.”

There are nearly 900,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the U.S., with more than 50,000 deaths.

Americans Coronavirus COVID-19 Fear Intelwars Pew Research Prayer Religion Study

Study: Droves of Americans are turning to prayer in the face of COVID-19 fear and uncertainty

A new
report says that more than half of Americans are praying that COVID-19 will quickly come to an end.

What are the details?

The new poll from the Pew Research Center reports that more Americans are turning to prayer to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

“The virus also has impacted Americans’ religious behaviors,” the poll notes. “More than half of all U.S. adults (55%) say they have prayed for an end to the spread of coronavirus. Large majorities of Americans who pray daily (86%) and of U.S. Christians (73%) have taken to prayer during the outbreak — but so have some who say they seldom or never pray, and people who say they do not belong to any religion (15% and 24%, respectively).”

The poll reports that 82% of evangelicals have prayed for an end to the COVID-19 outbreak — which is unsurprising, but 26% of religious “nones” — or “nothing in particular” — self-report that they, too, have been turning to prayer as a means to end COVID-19. The poll also reports that at least 15% of people who say they seldom to never pray are also praying for an end to the deadly pandemic.

At least 40% of Americans who say they attend church on a monthly basis now say that they have been virtually attending worship services online or via television on a regular basis.

To note, the poll finds that “Democrats are more likely than Republicans to say their personal life has changed in a major way as a result of the coronavirus outbreak: About half of Democrats and Democratic leaners (51%) say this, compared with 38% of Republicans and those who lean to the GOP.”

The survey, taken by 11,537 Americans, was conducted between March 19-24.

You can read the poll’s full findings
here.

What else?

As pointed out by the
Washington Examiner, nearly half of the United States believes that the COVID-19 outbreak is a “wake-up call” from God.

A new national survey for The Joshua Fund — which was conducted by McLaughlin & Associates — says that 44% of people polled believe that the virus should encourage people to “turn back to faith in God.”

Further, 29% of people surveyed said they believe that the coronavirus pandemic indicates that humans are living in “the ‘last days.'”

The poll notes that of all people surveyed, 30% of Jewish Americans, 30% of Democrats, 39% of Republicans, 40% of African Americans, and 50% of Hispanics believe that the COVID-19 outbreak is indicative of the end of days.

In a statement, Joshua Fund founder Joel C. Rosenberg says, “Americans in near full lockdown are anxious, and understandably so. Yet millions are turning to God, the Bible, and Christian sermons for answers, some of them for the first time. That may be the most important silver lining in this crisis so far.”

McLaughlin & Associates conducted the survey from March 23-26 on 1,000 likely American voters.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Donald Trump Intelwars mike pence Prayer

President Trump stops amidst coronavirus crisis for prayer call with pastors: ‘I have to find time’

President Donald Trump may never be busier than he is right now, as the nation deals with the public health and economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. Still, he made time to pray with Vice President Mike Pence and a group of 700 pastors Friday, according to LifeNews.

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council arranged a prayer conference call with the group Friday. According to Perkins, Pence told President Trump he was about to get on the call, Trump decided he needed to stop what he was doing and join. Perkins wrote:

“When I told the president I was going to be speaking to all of you,” Mike explained, “[he was] in the midst of an extraordinarily busy day. [But] he looked at me and said, ‘I have to find time. I need to find time.'” To the president, he went on, “the prayers of the people on this call mean [everything] to him …” So despite everything facing America, the two most important leaders of this nation stopped everything to pray with the people on the ground, who are ministering to their communities.

It’s a “wild world,” the president started. The virus, he said, “came upon us so suddenly. And we were doing better than we’ve ever done before as a country in terms of the economy — and then, all of the sudden, we got hit with this. So we had to close it down,” he said wistfully. “We’re actually paying a big price to close it down. Never happened before.” But, President Trump insisted, “I think we’re going to come back stronger than ever before.”

Perkins said the president asked for prayer for the strength of the United States, and also that Americans would make the “right choice” on Election Day in November.

“I want to thank you for praying for our country and for those who are sick. You do such an incredible job,” Trump said on the call, according to Perkins. “You’re very inspirational people. And I’m with you all the way. You know that you see what we’ve done for right to life and all of the things that we’ve been working so hard together. I’ve been working with many of the people on the call. Many, many of the people. We’ve had tremendous support. But we are going to get over this.”

cash Donald Trump Donations Facebook Live Intelwars Paula White Prayer prosperity gospel Solicit Spiritual adviser trump WHITE HOUSE

Prosperity preacher Paula White solicits cash during coronavirus prayer session: ‘We are a hospital for those who are soul-sick’

Prosperity gospel preacher Paula White, who is also a spiritual adviser to President Donald Trump, recently solicited for cash donations during a prayer session for the coronavirus.

White, who heads the White House’s “Faith and Opportunity Initiative” program, is a proponent of the prosperity gospel, a teaching that espouses that God promises to reward those who are faithful with health and wealth and general success.

On Tuesday, she held a prayer and teaching time live on her Facebook page intended to offer hope during the virus outbreak and teaching on the subject of prayer.

Near the end of the session, she urged viewers to support her ministry, which she described as a “hospital for those who are soul-sick.”

“Churches do so much,” White said. “Not just from a humanitarian standpoint, but the greatest thing we do is bring spiritual truths that transform. What we do as ministers of the gospel is so vitally important, because every single day, we are a hospital to the sick.”

“Not necessarily the physically sick, though we also help take care of that. Many churches have health centers, etc.,” she explained. “But we are a hospital for those who are soul-sick, those who are spiritually sick, because we bring forth the word of God, and we bring for truth that gets deep down in your soul in the way you think and you feel about things.

“Maybe you’d like to sow a $91 seed, and that’s just putting your faith with Psalm 91,” White continued. “Or maybe $9. Or whatever God tells you to do. If you want to be a blessing to Paula White Ministry or City of Destiny. We would love for you to help us and stand with us. We’d love for you to stand with your church. Don’t forget: Now is not the time to abandon your covenant with God. It’s a time that you go deeper. Stand with your pastor.”

Christianity Intelwars Islam Muslim national day of prayer Prayer Rashida tlaib Rep. rashida tlaib

Rashida Tlaib endorses explicit insult against the National Day of Prayer

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) decided to endorse an explicit insult against the National Day of Prayer through a retweet on her official social media account.

Tlaib endorsed the divisive message posted by vocal gun control activist David Hogg on Twitter by pushing it to her nearly one million followers.

“Don’t let this administration address COVID-19 like our national gun violence epidemic,” tweeted Hogg. “F**k a National day of Prayer, we need immediate comprehensive action.”


Image Source: Twitter screenshot

Critics of the congresswoman denounced the use of extreme language against what is a tradition of prayer that is inclusive of many religions, including her Muslim faith.

This isn’t the first time Tlaib has employed expletives while pushing her political agenda. One of the first controversies of her tenure in Congress was when she screamed, “We’re gonna impeach the motherf***er!” about the president to a cheering crowd of supporters.

On the other hand, she objected mightily when a citizen expressed their disfavor against her policies by paying for a billboard that called her and her congressional compatriots “idiots.”

abortion clinic Christianity Intelwars Jesus Prayer pro-abortion Pro-Life Satan watch

‘Satan is the one true lord’: Woman harasses pro-life students outside abortion clinic. Students respond by saying they’ll pray for her.

Pro-life students were harassed in a variety of ways while they peacefully prayed Saturday outside the Bellingham, Washington, Planned Parenthood, Students for Life reported.

But perhaps the most pointed reaction to the pro-life students from Whatcom Community College was a woman caught on video driving up to them and declaring allegiance to the devil.

‘Satan is the one true lord’

“Satan is the one true lord,” she announced, looking at the students through the passenger window of her vehicle. “Satan — the dark lord.”

“We’ll pray for you,” one pro-life student replied before adding that the students were “just out here praying, trying to support the community.”

“We don’t need your prayers,” the woman replied before driving off and announcing in a ta-ta-for-now tone, “Hail Satan!”

Check it out:

But there was more in store

According to Autumn Lindsey, a leader for Whatcom Community College Students for Life, there was much more action at the demonstration. Such as:

  • Drivers passing by and yelling obscenities and displaying crude gestures.
  • A group of people yelling threateningly in one student’s face, calling him a “c***sucker.”
  • A man riding a bike by students and throwing a glass vial at them, which shattered. Police were called to make sure it wasn’t dangerous or harmful, and the fire department tested and cleaned up the fluid.
  • A woman flashing the students while yelling, “My body, my choice!”
  • Oh, and a car passenger masturbating toward the students as the vehicle passed them.

“What happened Saturday shows us the worst of the worst of the pro-choice movement; obscenity, Satan worship, and lewdness towards students,” Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America said.

Lindsey added, “This kind of intimidation causes some of our volunteers to feel uneasy to sign up to pray for mothers and preborn children during a 40 Days for Life event. We are only 11 days in, and we have already been bullied and threatened to the point where our volunteers are nervous to go alone. But we will not back down because this just demonstrates how evil the abortion industry is. We will stand united together and not let the bullies stop us even though the violence of abortion is celebrated by increasingly violent people.”

Ainsley Earhardt authors Beth moore Bible Christianity evangelists Intelwars Prayer Scripture Sexual Abuse

Author, teacher Beth Moore explains how Bible Scriptures got her through childhood sexual abuse

Prominent evangelical teacher and author Beth Moore appeared on Fox Nation’s “Ainsley’s Bible Study” and revealed that leaning on the Word of God helped her cope with childhood sexual abuse.

What are the details?

Speaking with co-host Ainsley Earhardt and other Bible study guests, Moore discussed her experience overcoming childhood sex abuse trauma.

“I had the great blessing of being raised in church three times a week in those days, Sunday morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night —minimum — we were always there,” she began. “I do not remember a time of my life that I was not hearing the name of Jesus.”

“However,” she added, “my family was very, very broken. … It’s just that sort of the combination of the good and the bad and the ugly that can all take place under one roof.”

Moore pointed out that while she was loved, she also lived in a home that was “extremely unstable.”

“While there were certainly people that loved me and met a lot of my needs … our home was extremely unstable, extremely unstable,” she admitted. “I also fell victim to a childhood sexual abuse within my own home.”

Moore said that she will not publicly identify her alleged abuser, but revealed that the culprit was in a “protective role.”

“I don’t identify publicly who it was, but I will simply say that when anyone that should be in a protective role around you becomes not the protector, but the perpetrator, I cannot tell you how that will mess with you,” she added.

Moore pointed out that it took her decades of relying on God’s Word to leave the abyss.

“No one would ever have known from the outside,” she explained. “But I was going to absolutely implode. I was 40 years old by the time I would tell you that my mind was completely out from under the influence of my victimization.”

Finally breaking free

Moore said that she was able to finally break free through memorizing Bible Scriptures.

“I put those truths on index cards and I would take those things with me everywhere I went,” she said. “I would walk around the grocery store … I was just saying those Scriptures over and over.”

Moore said that she would receive validation through God as her creator.

“I’d make statements of ‘This is who God says you are,’ and ‘This is what you have to believe,'” she added. “And I don’t care how you feel — this is the truth.”
