Democrat Ends Prayer to Open Congress with ‘Amen and Awoman’

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) triggers backlash over woke pandering

A Democrat lawmaker has triggered a backlash after he attempted to pander to the woke mob by ending his prayer to open the 117th Congress with the words “Amen and awoman.”

On Sunday, while starting the new session in the House of Representatives, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) altered the traditional ending of “amen” by ignorantly trying to make it “gender-inclusive.”

Video of the prayer’s ending was posted to Twitter by Republican Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA).

As Reschenthaler pointed out, the word “amen” is Latin for “so be it.”

“It’s not a gendered word,” Reschenthaler wrote.

“Unfortunately, facts are irrelevant to progressives.”

Reschenthaler described Cleaver’s pandering as “Unbelievable.”


“We ask it in the name of the monotheistic God, [unintelligible], and God known by many names and by many different faiths, amen, and awoman,” said Cleaver.

Cleaver is an ordained United Methodist pastor and was tapped to lead the opening prayer to start the new session.

Congress swore in new lawmakers on Sunday and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was re-elected as House speaker.

On Friday, Pelosi introduced a radical new set of rules for Congress which includes a ban on “offensive” “gender-focused” terms such as “father, mother, son, and daughter.”

The elimination of gendered terms is part of a set of “future-focused” proposals, the House Committee on Rules said in a statement.

In clause 8(c)(3) of rule XXIII, gendered terms will be removed.

The newly-banned terms include:

“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.” 

In their place, terms such as “parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent-in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, stepsibling, half-sibling, or grandchild” will be used, instead.
