The first female Muslim member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives said Tuesday she was offended by a colleague’s decision to open a voting session with a prayer a day earlier that “at the name of Jesus every knee will bow.”
Democratic Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell of Philadelphia said she felt the remarks by Rep. Stephanie Borowicz shortly before Johnson-Harrell took the oath of office on Monday used her religion against her.
“I thought that for the most part, the entire invocation was offensive,” Johnson-Harrell told reporters, noting that her own religion respects Jesus. “But to use Jesus as a weapon is not OK.”
“Jesus, you are our only hope,” Rep. Stephanie Borowicz prayed. “At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus, that you are Lord.”
Movita Johnson-Harrell, who was sworn into office after the prayer, said the prayer was “highly offensive to me, my guests, and other members of the House.” More here.
Islam is the radical opposite of Christianity and the divisions in christianity only further the seperation from Islam.
Islam believes Jesus was born as another prophet and did not die. The foundation of Christianity is the miracle of the birth, life, death and resurrection of Christ.
Political correctness in a #metoo generation is coming about to bring this separation to the foreground and the new battle stage for Christianity.
Its illegal in some countries to call someone homosexual. Now, it will be illegal to practise your faith if ‘it offends’ someone nearby. Truly signs of the end times.
