Christianity has been under assault by the left for a long time.
Progressives either warp the religion to suit their political goals or have tried to remove it from public life altogether.
Now one Democrat just insulted Christians with one ridiculous statement.
Christianity is again under attack from the left.
Democrats continue to secularize the country as much as possible while twisting religion for the sake of political expediency.
One of the ways they do that is by altering language to suit their agenda.
For example, abortion is called “female healthcare,” and since progressives believe that healthcare is a human right, killing babies is a human right as well.
The main reason that leftists believe in abortion so strongly is because it furthers the goal of obliterating differences between the sexes.
Now one Democrat congressman furthered the gender “war” with a ridiculous statement.
Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri opened the 117th Congress with a prayer that began innocent enough, but it was his closing that really raised eyebrows.
“And dare I ask, oh Lord, peace even in this chamber now and evermore. We ask it in the name of the monotheistic god, Brahma, and god known by many names by many different faiths. Amen and Awoman.”

While this is an absurd remark on several levels, it dovetails the left’s use of fake gender-neutral words like “womxn” and “latinx.”
Critical gender theory has made its way into the halls of Congress.
As is typical from the left, Cleaver responded to the criticism by playing the victim.
“[I am] deeply disappointed that my prayer has been misinterpreted and misconstrued by some to fit a narrative that stokes resentment and greater division among portions of our population…Rather than reflecting on my faithful requests for community healing and reversion from our increasingly tribal tendencies, it appears that some have latched on to the final word of this conversation in an attempt to twist my message to God and demean me personally.”
“Amen” is not a gendered word – but making it one is divisive.
This form of “woke” Christianity is the only kind allowed among Democrats.
During the calamitous Democratic National Convention, two different delegations intentionally excluded “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance.
NEW VIDEO: At the #DemocraticNationalConvention , LGBT Caucus purposely leaves out the words, “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance. Watch. This now makes twice that two key constituencies of the Democratic Party have done this. See my earlier tweet about DNC Muslim Caucus pic.twitter.com/2GIDcCMq1F

Even Christians in sports and entertainment get mocked or even blacklisted for their views if they’re too devout or outspoken.
Progressivism has already infected so much of the culture that we can’t allow it to take a bigger foothold inside the church.
