They Want to BAN Jesus From Politics

By

America was founded as a Bible-believing, even Christian nation.

Yes, it’s true that the Constitution takes pains not to impose or endorse any particular brand or denomination of Christianity. But it’s undeniable that faith in God, and even in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, underpinned the dealings of our Founding Fathers.

So it’s a rather dark day when a group of Democrats start clamoring to effectively ban Jesus from a state capitol building.

It should come as no surprise that the uproar centers around a Muslim lawmaker, the first female Muslim lawmaker in Pennsylvania’s General Assembly.

Movita Johnson-Harrell was sworn into office as the newest Democratic representative to the Pennsylvania legislature earlier this week, but not before a Republican colleague and fellow freshman, Rep. Stephanie Borowicz, opened the session with a decidedly Christian prayer.

“Jesus, you are our only hope,” Borowicz prayed. “At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus, that you are Lord.”

Johnson-Harrell was furious, calling the prayer “highly offensive to me, my guests, and other members of the House” and an act of “Islamophobia.”

Other Democrats agreed, even those who themselves claim to be Christian, and accused Borowicz of effectively weaponizing her faith.

House Minority Whip Jordan Harris, who insisted that he is a devout Christian, went so far as to suggest that “there is no room in our Capitol building” for so explicitly thanking and dedicating oneself to Jesus.
