Democratic Missouri representative Emanuel Cleaver, a ‘pastor’, recited the opening prayer on the first day of the 117th Congress on Sunday. The ‘prayer’ began with a hint of hope for decreased political division. But towards the end of the ‘prayer’ Cleaver asked the Hindu deity Brahma for “peace across the land” and inside Congress as well. ” Now and evermore, we ask it in the name of the monotheistic god brahma and god known by many names by many different faiths”
Also, and this made news in some places, he ended the prayer with Amen and Awoman. No, I'm not kidding!
Will this "catch on?" Don't be surprised!
