On Tuesday the Christian Post carried an article entitled, “Congress Has Officially Gone Gender Crazy”. It was all in reference to last Sunday’s opening of the 117th Congress when the prayer to open this session diverted from all norms. It was offered by former representative of the House, a United Methodist Church Minister, Emanuel Cleaver. His prayer was offered in “the name of the monotheistic God, Brahma”, of the Hindu religion. He concluded the prayer as follows, “We ask it in the name of the monotheistic God, Brahma, and god known by many names by many different faiths. Amen and Awoman,” The prayer is believed to have elicited considerable mockery across social media.
But what is the real reason for this kind of prayer? It is a move by the radicals in the US Congress to eliminate all gendered language from the floor of the house and from legislation so as to create a more “politically correct” environment. The House of Representatives officially voted on the proposal on Monday. The vote came down along party lines, with all Democrats voting in favor of the package and all Republicans voting against it. Because Democrats have a narrow majority in the House of Representatives, the rules package passed and will remain in effect for the duration of the 117th Congress. Words referring to gender, such as ‘father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother, half sister, grandson, or granddaughter will be removed.”
But the word “Amen” comes means, “So be it.” It is used in Jewish, Christian, and other liturgies, and is found in Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Arabic, English and many other languages. It has nothing to do with gender. Who said being politically correct has anything to do with truth or reality? To the contrary, being politically correct is quite often based on the denial of reality, or, in this case. To view the word “amen” through the terms of gender is to display complete ignorance of a common word.
Responding to these rule changes in the House of Representatives Rev. Franklin Graham has accused top House Democrats of trying to deny God’s authority. Graham made reference to Gen. 2:27, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” According to Graham, the push to eliminate gender-specific language “is shaking a fist in the Creator’s face, trying to deny His authority. May God help us to cry out to Him for those who are in leadership in this nation, before it is too late. Amen!
