Islamic Imam Leads U.S. House of Representatives in Prayer ‘in the Name of Allah’

ChebliWASHINGTON — An Islamic imam led the U.S. House of Representatives in prayer ‘in the name of Allah’ this week, as those representing the people from states across America stood with their heads bowed and eyes closed.

Imam Hamad Ahmad Chebli of the Islamic Society of Central Jersey in Monmouth opened the day on Thursday, being introduced by Speaker John Boehner.

“In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful,” he began. “Praise be to Allah, the cherisher, the sustainer of the world, the most gracious, the most merciful master of the Day of Judgment. Thee do we worship and thine do we seek.”

“Guide us to the safe path,” Chebli continued. “The god of the prophets and the messenger says in the Koran [that] he does not place a responsibility on you greater than you can bear. Everyone will receive the good they have earned and vice versa.”

He then asked asked that Allah bless and guide Congress.

“O god, bless us as we begin a new day. Bless this assembly. Bless the people and the nation it represents. O god, at this time in our history, the challenges for our nation and the world are many,” Chebli said. “O god, grant these men and women the wisdom, the guidance and the strength to pursue compassion, justice and sound judgment. O god, in your wisdom, the guidance and the strength to pursue responsibility and honor.”

O god, please help them with your guidance and your light. O god, improve the well being of all inhabitants of this great nation and beyond,” he continued. “O god, improve the well being of all inhabitants of this great nation and beyond. Amen.”

The prayer was then followed by the Pledge of Allegiance, as well as a brief speech by U.S. Representative Rush Holt of New Jersey, who praised Chebli before those gathered.

“I ask my colleagues to join me in welcoming Imam Chebli,” he said. “He has been both a friend and an ambassador of Islam to me and many others in New Jersey, and we are all honored that his prayer has opened this session of Congress.”

Holt, a professing Quaker, then provided the background on the Islamic imam, who is heavily trained in the Muslim religion.

“He’s a native of Lebanon and attended one of the most prestigious Islamic institutions in the world, where he received his masters in Islamic cannonical law. He’s been the leader of ISCJ since 1986, where he makes Muslims and non-Muslims feel welcome,” the Democratic representative said. “The depth of his faith and scholarship, his commanding dignity and the warmth of his personality make him the most prominent and attractive figure of Islam in our region.”

“In a period where the public understanding of Islam has grown greatly, we are fortunate to have Imam Chebli in our community. He’s worked hard to build interfaith dialogue and public understanding,” Holt continued. “Most recently, New Jersey’s governor [Republican Chris Christie] appointed him to the governor’s leadership summit on diversity. He and I have a friendship that has lasted many years, especially since September 2001, and I greatly value that friendship.”

“Through is inspiring prayer this morning, we can all gain wisdom and guidance,” he claimed.

    Matthew 7:15-16 KJV

    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    • bowie1

      I believe that refers more to those who come as Christian ministers but preach a false gospel.

      • GlarryB

        But it sure fits for this as well !!

    question..can u say a Christian prayer in saudi/iran government premises?..shame on US

    • bowie1

      Only in an American embassy – maybe.

    • Susan Moore

      Great comment! You are so right about a Christian prayer over there.

  • loricaliforni

    And not ONE person from the House of Representatives – all of these so-called Christian conservatives that we have elected to represent us in OUR country – not ONE of them stood up and said, “No – I will not bow my head and pray to the false god Allah.” NOT ONE PERSON. Remember this. God the Father, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, as well as His Son Jesus Christ, have been kicked out of our government buildings, our schools and anywhere else it has been deemed offensive, but we invite an Imam to come and say a prayer to Satan in one of our nation’s highest branches of government. We, as a nation, have fallen so far from the Grace of God. And nobody seems to care.

    • Moe Rosenhek

      We are witnessing the impossible. That is just what sue said when the Nazis rose to power. How can this be. We have obviously not lean red from history and we hall reap what we sow.

      • No Bull

        Nazis were Christians. So is the KKK.

        What have we learned from this?

        • John_33

          The Nazis were not Christians. They killed Christians who dared to help save the Jewish people from destruction. They also created a phony Christian sect that created a new bible – one that removed the Old Testament and changed the New. They claimed that Jesus was actually an Aryan and not Jewish – they were definitely not Christian.

          • No Bull

            They were not your form of Christian, however they were (and are) Christian.

          • John_33

            As much as atheists are Christian, perhaps. They rewrote Christian hymns that praised God and turned them into songs that praised Hitler. They railed against the God of the Old Testament (yes, the same One who is the God of the New Testament), and they tried to wipe out the Jewish people – the people that God said He would preserve until He returns (guess who’s still here?). The Nazis killed Christians who dared speak up against all of this. All of this is well-documented. Look up the Confessing Church, Deutsche Christen, the Völkisch movement, and Positive Christianity.

          • No Bull

            Poor analogy.

            Let me explain it simply: Cross+Christ=Christian.

          • John_33

            If one identifies as an atheist and then goes out and worships gods, then they wouldn’t be an atheist because atheists don’t believe in or worship any deities. If one claims that he or she is a Christian yet they refuse to obey God and display vitriolic hatred towards Him and His people, then they aren’t Christian.

            Funny you should bring up the cross and Christ because the Nazis didn’t like the cross or Christ – they dubbed those core elements of Christianity as “passive.” They even went further and said that Christ dying for everyone’s sins and offering atonement was “negative Christianity.” (Being saved from sin was negative?) Instead, they preferred to focus on what they called the “active” and “positive” elements of Christianity, such as their fake Aryan Jesus fighting with “the Jews.” Of course, it was just plain anti-semitism, and they needed to rewrite the New Testament and discard the Old to sell it. They actually pushed Volkisch religions onto the people, not Christianity. Again, this is all painstakingly well-documented.

            well said bro John. GOD bless you!

          • John

            As you said Atheists don’t believe in worship or deities.
            Excially, Atheisme is a new idea. When you go back to the old societies like Inca’s, Maya’s , Native Indians, the Biblical Societies, they believed all in a higher deity. They knew there was something higher.

          • Fairtax

            Cross + Christ+ (*) = religion…… Christ+ relationship= christian..
            the religion is nothing,,, the relationship is everything.

          • No Bull

            Religion is all made up fantasy to calm the deluded masses and give peace to those who fear the unknown.

            Sadly without it, civilization the size it is right now would probably fall apart without constant fear from religion since so many do not have the morals on their own to do the right thing.

          • Esther Kirby

            So you are saying that morals only come with religion which, even though you believe it is wrong, are necessary for the survival of civilization? What makes the morals that come from religion “right” if they are just made up? How can something that’s not real be necessary for survival?

          • Stacy

            and YOU’RE calling John_33’s posts a poor analogy? In what world? YOURS? Sounds IRONIC

          • The Last Trump

            Poorer definition. Not even close.

          • Stuart

            Very weak. The problem here is simply that you will stubbonly defend your position without ever accepting that you could learn something if you were objective. Cross does not equal Christian. Believing, accepting and worshipping Jesus as the only way equals Christian. The Cross symbolises this. The cross in itself is only a symbolism. Now that is simply explained

            Philippians 4:5-9 (KJV)
            5 Let
            your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

            6 Be careful for nothing; but in
            every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be
            made known unto God.
            7 And the peace
            of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds
            through Christ Jesus.
            8 Finally,
            brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest,
            whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever
            things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if
            there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these
            things.
            9 Those things, which ye have
            both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace
            shall be with you.

            Great communication skills. This is one of the best descriptions by another person that I have heard.

          • Debra Blouin

            Let me explain it even more simply and quite a bit more accurately: Christ + “follower”=Christian

            This is what the suffix means generally and this is why it was used-argualby as an insult. Apparently they adopted it rather than fight it, wearing their persecution as an honor.
            “Little Christs” in the Greek or in Aramaic “little Messiahs” was a diminutive and often a way to marginalize. When we say one is a Floridian, we are saying they reside in or originate from Florida; but that is English usage.

            The cross is not Holy, it’s pagan, pagans, catholics used it to symbolize the death of the Christ while they massacred Christians in a 300 year holocaust, slaughtering and hanging them to crosses upside down in the early A.D. But I agree this is a poor analogy.

          • Stacy

            The cross is not holy because Christianity is not a religion. The cross is a symbol of the tree of life, which is a symbol of how Jesus nourishes us – proving He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Religion is the act of purifying one’s self in order to be worthy of that religion’s god – to reach him, above. Christianity is the act of God coming down to YOU through believers (whom are trying to pass on His message) so that He can be closer to your soul. The problem is, you’re listening to liars if you haven’t been taught all about this.

          • wandakate

            GUEST: That is actually true. A cross represents death. JESUS is alive forever more and holds the key to the Kingdom of GOD. He is in Heaven with GOD the FATHER. He said that he was going to prepare a place for us. This heaven and the new earth which is being prepared will come down to earth out of heaven. It does have pagan/heathen origins and as you said Catholics wear crosses and it is a symbolism of CHRIST death.

            You should read Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He was a German Christian before and during Hitler’s rise to power. You might find his eyewitness account different from what you think you know.

          • Stacy

            S/He won’t look it up. It’s too much work to find out the truth and too painful to face it. It’s much easier to be ignorant and hateful. It’s much ‘cooler’ to speak down on Christianity and God. It’s fun to flip the script and call the bible evil. Little do they know He gives us the strength they do not possess. We can and have faced that truth in the mirror. We have the courage to battle demons. We already know which side is right and which side is not, and we already know what is going to happen. We can tell them until we are blue in the face, but they will not hear. These are the people who will be left behind when we are raptured. Hopefully that will be a big enough slap in the face for some of them to actually wake up. If not, satan can keep them.

          • john

            That’s just factually wrong. Christians in a lot of Muslim countries use the name Allah..

          • disqus_bFXHHP3bse

            Allah does not appear as God’s name in the Bible

          • john

            neither does God. It’s an English translation of The Hebrew=El, Elohim, Greek=Theos, etc. Allah is the Arabic form, directly related to the Hebrew form. When people become Christians in Arabic speaking countries what other word would they use in their prayers but Allah?

          • wandakate

            JOHN: I thought GOD was Yahweh in Hebrew and JESUS was Yahsua or Yeshua. Allah may well be what they call GOD in Arabic. I have a friend who’s dad is from Egypt thus Muslim and I will asked her to ask her dad what name they call GOD and find out.

          • john

            There are a few names for God in the OT. but YAHWEH is usually translated as LORD GOD or LORD in English Bibles, and Elohim is usually translated as “God.” Jesus is from the Hebrew Yeshua through the greek form Iesos. 🙂 I’d be interested to hear what your friend’s dad thinks about it.

          • wandakate

            He calls GOD ALLAH, it’s all he has known, it’s the name he grew up with. He’s Muslim from Egypt, but he lives and works here.

          • john

            Just to clarify. I’m not Muslim. I was commenting that many CHRISTIANS (yes ‘real’ Christians by any definition) use the word in prayer. The are being persecuted for doing so, so calling them false Christians seems pretty ignorant…

            Muslims are the only one that pray like Jesus. Jesus cleansed, washed himslef and prostated and fell on his face in prayer. Check ur bible. Muslims pray exactly the same with no changes whatsoever and pray to the same God Jesus prayed to. Read the text with open mind n u will see. Peace.

          • Pauline Smith

            Muslims do not pray to the same God as Christians! Jesus is the ONE and only true God! THERE IS NO OTHER!!

          • Abdiladif Abdullahi Mohamud

          • Pauline Smith

            John 1 New International Version (NIV)

            The Word Became Flesh

            1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.

            6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testifyconcerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

            9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

          • Abdiladif Abdullahi Mohamud

            The God Islam worship is the creator, sustainer of this world. We pray the same way Jesus did just like u described. We believe Jesus was born miraculously to virgin Mary, that he spoke as soon as he was born, that he called on people to worship the father and the father alone. We believe he cured the sick, gave vision back to the blind, raised people from the grave and gave life, and that he is the Massiah. We also believe that Jesus is alive, in heaven and will return. So, contrary to many stereotypes, Muslims believe and pray to the same God Jesus, Moses, Abraham, Jacob, and all the Adam prayed to. He is the sustainer who sent all these prophets when society strayed from his way. To him we all return.

          • Frank

            Muslims do NOT worship the same God as Christians in any sense of the word. My brother-in-law is a former Muslim from a Muslim held country, my cousin lived in a Muslim held country for about 15-20 years and regularly ministered to them, I have studied with many Muslims over the years and am not young. They do not pray to the same nor worship the same God.

          • Abdiladif Abdullahi Mohamud

            Frank, Muslims do worship the Same God JESUS worshiped no DOUBT about that. As you know, Christianity have evolved over the years specially over the past 200 years. My point was that Muslims practically follow Jesus more than Christians and bow and pray to the creator who JESUS himself prayed to when he was in the temple and various other places.

          • Frank

            Muslims do not worship the same God as Jesus prayed to. Jesus is God. You may be able to fool those who do not know God or the truth about Muslims, but I am not such a person. Muslims do not follow Jesus in the least. They deny Him in all they do and all they say. Even demons believe the existence of God and tremble! Muslims follow a false God with buzz words and twisted truths which are no truths at all. Repent and seek Jesus.

            John 10:22-40, (NIV Bible), 22 Then came the Festival of Dedication[b] at Jerusalem. It was winter, 23 and Jesus was in the temple courts walking in Solomon’s Colonnade. 24 The Jews who were there gathered around him, saying, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”

            25 Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all[c]; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.30 I and the Father are one.”

            31 Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him, 32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”

            33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”

            34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”’[d]? 35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside— 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’? 37 Do not believe me unless I do the works of my Father. 38 But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.” 39 Again they tried to seize him, but he escaped their grasp.

            40 Then Jesus went back across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing in the early days. There he stayed, 41 and many people came to him. They said, “Though John never performed a sign, all that John said about this man was true.” 42 And in that place many believed in Jesus.

          • Abdiladif Abdullahi Mohamud

            Jesus was sent by God just like Abraham, Moses and Muhammad. Matthews 17-19

            17: Think not that i am come to destroy the law, or the prophets, am not come to destroy but to fulfil

            18: For Verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

            19: Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

            Sister, Is there any single unequivocal statement from the libs of Jesus that he said that he is God and worship me. Please look at the more than 66 books of the bible, the 73 of the Roman Catholics where Jesus said I am God, worship me.

            Now, give me a chance to answer your text John 10. Verse 22-40. When reading this specially verse 30, u have to put things into context. When he walked on to the balcony, jews that surrounded him were looking for trouble so they make serious false charges, first one being that he was spoke ambiguously that you are the Massiah. So it goes on: 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all[c]; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.30 I and the Father are one.”
            Now right here Jesus is saying I and the father are one in purpose. Now the Jews who were looking for trouble make another false charge which is: verse 31-33. 31 Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him, 32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?” 33 “We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.”

            So the Jews were looking for trouble and making false charges that they though will give them a blank check to stone him. And of course he escaped.

          • wandakate

            ABDILADIF ABDULLAHI MOHAMUD: In Genesis it says that JESUS was with GOD in Heaven before He was a human on earth. It says, “Let us make man in our image”. GOD was speaking to JESUS. GOD wasn’t talking to himself, He was speaking to JESUS who was with GOD there at that time, when the earth was being created. Hope you read that. I am looking in the King James Bible…Chapter 1: 26…And GOD said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth”. You only believe that JESUS was a prophet but He was actually the Son of GOD, and much more than just a good man (a prophet).

          • Pauline Smith

            The God of Islam is NOT the God of the Christian faith no matter how Jesus prayed. Jesus prayed in the temple, along side his Jewish brothers, in the Jewish tradition. Jesus is the promised Messiah of the Old Testament. The New Testament tells of Jesus praying not just in the Temples, but in all places. It does not say that he fell flat on his face every time he prayed. He sat, he lifted his hands to heaven, he prayed on the mountainside. He prayed wherever there were those who were in need. And in Matthew 6:5-14 New International Version (NIV), Jesus teaches about prayer

            5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

            9 “This, then, is how you should pray:

            “‘Our Father in heaven,
            hallowed be your name,
            10 your kingdom come,
            your will be done,
            on earth as it is in heaven.
            11 Give us today our daily bread.
            12 And forgive us our debts,
            as we also have forgiven our debtors.
            13 And lead us not into temptation,[a]
            but deliver us from the evil one.[b]’

            14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

            PAULINE SMITH: You said that JESUS prayed in the temple, and He did, however you left out the “fact” that He prayed there and the people came there to worship Him on the Sabbath day. He prayed according to the FATHER’s commandment (the 4th one). He rested on the Sabbath and he worshiped on the Sabbath as well. That happen to have been and still is on Saturday, and not Sunday which is just the first day of the week. It couldn’t have been just for the Jews, as it was part of the commandments of GOD. If one of them applies today then they all have to. They are not obsolete. They are as relevant today as they ever were. GOD doesn’t change, he’s the same.

            In John 14:13; John 14:14; John 15:16; John 16:23 & 24; John 16:26 and Philippians 4:3 Jesus is speaking to his Disciples before he went to the Cross. He is telling them, whatever they ask for in, to ask in his name, so that that it may bring Glory to the Father.

          • Pauline Smith

            Jesus taught the Disciples, and through them, to all His followers, through His Word, the Bible, to pray to the Father, through through the Son. Jesus the Son intercedes for us, for those who call Jesus Lord. And in John 14 from verse 15 onwards, Jesus tells His Disciples that He will not leave them as orphans, but the Father will send the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit, and he will guide them in all things, and that the Father will send the Holy Spirit in His name. In Jesus’name. Not Allah, Jesus’ Name! Muslims do not pray like Christians.

This is even happening now, many say they are Christian to appease some but are truly practicing a religion. Christianity is not a religion but a way of life. Followers of Jesus Christ are Christians. Religion is a set of rules .

            Keep telling yourself that, Hitler allied himself with the Pope. The Pope endorsed many of Hitlers programmes. Hitler used christianity and the bible as a tool to dominate his own people. Your apologetism fail.

          • John_33

            If the pope endorsed your work or goals, would that make you a Christian? No, because the pope doesn’t define who is a Christian or who isn’t. The pope is not infallible nor is he Christian, but let’s go through the claims to examine them. First, there needs to be an acceptable definition of a Christian. Thankfully, Jesus gave us one in John 8:31 when he said “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Did the Nazis follow Christ’s words? (Did the popes, for that matter?) Let’s go even simpler. What is the most basic requirement to be a Christian? You need to have Christ, right? What would Christianity be without faith in Christ as the Son of God…well, let’s see what the Nazi Minister for Church Affairs, Hans Kerrl, said about the Nazi brand of Christianity – “Positive Christianity.”

            He stated that Positive Christianity did not rely “upon faith in Christ as the son of God.” No faith in Christ? What type of Christianity is this? Well, according to Kerrl, he said that in Positive Christianity, “[t]he Fuehrer is the herald of a new revelation.” Also, “[t]rue Christianity is represented by the party.” So, according to the Nazi Minister for Church Affairs, True Christianity does not need faith in Christ as the Son of God, Hitler is the herald of a new revelation, and you need to join the Nazi party to be a “Christian.” In other words, it was not about worshipping Jesus but about worshipping Hitler. That explains why he is also quoted as saying that “Positive Christianity is National Socialism.” It wasn’t just Kerrl who made these remarks. There were a host of others including Martin Bormann (Hitler’s private secretary) who stated the following:

            “When we National Socialists speak of belief in God, we do not mean, like the naive Christians and their spiritual exploiters, a man-like being sitting around somewhere in the universe. The force governed by natural law by which all these countless planets move in the universe, we call omnipotence or God. The assertion that this universal force can trouble itself about the destiny of each individual being, every smallest earthly bacillus, can be influenced by so-called prayers or other surprising things, depends upon a requisite dose of naivety or else upon shameless professional self-interest.” ~ Martin Bormann

            Of course, there are many, many more groups out there like this one when the Nazis came into power ranging from the German Faith movement (neopagan, anti-Christian) to the Deutsche Christen, which pretended to be Christian but attacked the Old Testament. Since God is the author of the Old and New Testaments (it’s impossible to claim otherwise since Jesus said that the Old Testament is from God), they were declaring war on God. In actuality, Hitler was their god, and millions chose to serve him with their lives.

        • Moe Rosenhek

          Nazis wer fascists and atheists, NOT Christian and certainly not in the true sense of the term. What did SHITler do as soon as he got control over Austria; he outlawed Christian prayer in school. That was just the beginning.

            So you telling me ALL of these articles are incorrect or fake?

            http://www.remnantofgod.org/ratzinger.htm

            The RCC murders Christians, always have and always will, and now they are simply using ISLAM to do it, same way they used Hitler to slaughter the Jews. Anyone with a competent knowledge of history knows this. Its even quoted…

            “That the Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than
            any other institution that has ever existed among mankind, will be questioned by no Protestant who has a competent knowledge of history . . . It is impossible to form a complete conception of the multitude of her victims, and it is quite certain that no powers of imagination can adequately realize their sufferings.”–W. E. H. Lecky, History of the Rise and Influence of the Spirit of Rationalism in Europe, vol. 2, p. 32, 1910 edition. (An excellent though lengthy article describing in detail the right of the Roman Catholic Church to do this, will be found in The Catholic Encyclopedia, vol. 12, p. 266.)

            The defense of Roman Catholics to this presentation is as
            follows: “Communists destroy churches because they are God’s enemies; Catholic’s destroy churches because they are God’s friends… Against such men-founded churches… Catholics in Latin America should arise and wipe them out with fire.” -John J. Oberlander, in The Voice of Freedom, 1954, p. 20.

            The rector of the Catholic Institute of Paris, H.M.A. Baudrillart, revealed the attitude of the church and her leaders toward
            persecution. “When confronted with heresy,” he said, “she does not content herself with persuasion, arguments of an intellectual and moral order appear to her insufficient, and she has recourse to force, to corporal punishment, to torture.” The Catholic Church, The Renassance, and Protestantism, pp. 182-183

            “There was no village of the Vaudois valleys but had its martyrs. The Waldenses were burned; they were cast into damp and horrid dungeons; they were smothered in crowds in mountain caverns, mothers and babes, and old men and women together; they were sent out into exile in the winter night, unclothed and unfed, to climb the snowy mountains; they were hurled over the rocks; their houses and lands were taken from them; their children were stolen to be indoctrinated with the religion which they abhorred. Rapacious individuals were sent among them to strip them of their property, to persecute and exterminate them. Thousands of heretics” or Waldenses, “old men, women and children, were hung, quartered, broken upon the wheel, or burned alive and their property confiscated for the benefit of the king, and Holy See.”-Thompson – The Papacy and the Civil Power

            March 12, 2000, Pope John Paul II ADMITTED the Roman Catholic Church KILLED the believers and does NOT know the Father or Jesus. To deny that, is to deny the very words of Jesus Christ. See proof here…

            Hitler said a lot of things. Hitler was raised Catholic. But he did not ascribe to their views as he grew older. He used symbolism from the Catholic religion for his own secular means. Every day people had a familiarity with a lot of those symbols–it made Naziism seem more familiar and thus more palatable to the German people.

        • Vueiy

          Your name’s a misnomer. Here’s an analogy you should be able to understand: sitting in a garage no more makes you a car than sitting in a church makes you a Christian. Just because someone SAYS they’re a Christian does not MAKE them one. A true follower of any religion lives their lives by the tenets OF that religion. Here’s another example. If you say you’re a vegetarian, but you eat porkchops, hamburgers, chicken, fish, and you love those rare steaks, are you really a vegetarian? NO. Clearly not. Same applies to the Nazis and KKK. Your OP was naught but willful foolishness.

            That’s what I said to someone one day.

This type of thing is what makes real Christian people look like idiots! Muslims think that all Americans by default are Christian, simply because they live here in the US. I have spent the last year talking to Muslims on FB groups and I promise, they hate Yeshua. They try to say they don’t, but they do. For crying out loud Suliman the Magnificent blocked the eastern gate to keep Messiah from coming back.

          No, No Bull the Nazis were not Christians and the kkk is not Christian. There is a Spirit and a Holy Personality that Shines out of the lives of those who are True Followers of Christ and a Light that Radiates from their face. I have been around people and had them look at me with tears running down their face and people ask me what they have to do to be right and I’ll admit that this not of me but of the Lord. It is His Holy Presence in my life. Followers of muhammad do not have this as they are followers of satan. The Worshippers of God/Yahweh who will live for Him the True way will do it in, Spirit and in Truth.” There is a Prophecy from the True Holy Scriptures that says concerning this nation; “Therefore her plagues will come upon her in one day; death and mourning and famine.” We are living in that day. It also says that they will hate the whore and burn her with fire. This country, (the leaders anyways, have given their souls to Satan and he is going to require it), has sold out and is under judgment and wrath is coming.

            Um…WHAT? My goodness, that is pure insanity. Satan wasn’t cast out of heaven for “loving God too much,” but for having too much PRIDE and attempting to USURP God. TOTALLY DIFFERENT. If you READ the bible, you’d know that.

            Lucifer did not try to USURP God. He refused to bow to humans, who he saw as lesser beings. Did you forget that Lucifer was God’s most loyal servant? He refused to bow to the humans after God ordered him to. Lucifer felt above the humans, which became God’s favored creatures after their creation. He was cast from heaven after standing up for himself and his angel brethren.

            Oh, please DO tell us how Republican and Democratic ideals have flipped – this I must hear! The Democratic Party fought for the “right” to own black people, voted against every Civil Rights Act from the late 1800’s to the 1960’s, voted against the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, and started the KKK. Once Republicans guaranteed the black man his civil rights, Democrats swooped in with their guilt-laden feelings and enslaved the black man once more on the Welfare Plantation. Now that they have ruined the lives of millions of black people (need I discuss the 50 year poverty rate record and the sufferings of blacks under the Poverty President the last 6 years?!?), Democrats will not stop at taking away a person’s life: they have systematically destroyed the lives of 57 million innocent, defenseless babies in the womb. All for the “virtue” of “choice.” Your slave-owning ideological ancestors believed in “choice” too – the “choice” to own black people. You should be ashamed of yourself, but as an a-theist, I know you don’t know what “shame” is: there is no guilt in your heart, because there is no right or wrong under a-theism. The “pope” and “cardinals” of a-theism agree: https://winteryknight.wordpress.com/2014/01/16/an-atheist-explains-the-real-consequences-of-adopting-an-atheistic-worldview/#comment-101449 God bless you and turn your wicked heart!

      In the Bible, In Hebrew, God is called Yahweh, Ya, and in the Chaldean texts of the Bible, God is called Ellah (Elohim). In the Arabic language, the Chaldean Biblical name for God (Ellah) is Allah. In the Arab nations, Christian Arabs also call God Allah. Allah is NOT a false God. Allah, Ellah, Elohim, Yahweh are the different languages’ names for the one and only God, who is the creator of all. Those who call Allah a false God such as a moon God, are also calling Ellah, Elohim and Yahweh a false god, because they are all the same. There is only one God.

      • Patrick Wilson

        No! You are spreading lies like the Great Deceiver, Allah himself! It is completely impossible for Yahweh YHVH, Elohim to be the same God as Allah. It is impossible for Allah to be the god of the Bobble as well, and here is why. The person who said they were praying to Satan, was closer to the Truth than you are. The God of the Bible and Jesus both have nothing but Truth in them. God does not and cannot lie. In fact, a Name for Christ IS the Truth! But Allah, on the other hand, is the Great Deceiver! There are many verses on the Quran that spell out that Allah is the best at scheming and deceiving and there’s nobody who can scheme and deceive better than Allah can deceive! Satan is the Father of all lies! So, Satan and Allah are one and the same maybe, but it’s impossible and an outright lie to say that the Good of the Jews and the Christians is Allah! One more lie on the pile of lies! Galatians 1 warned against any man coming with another gospel that he said he got from an angel, saying that it wasn’t another gospel but that they were deceiving you with a false, perverted gospel and that person (in this case, Muhammed) was accursed. Then it repeats itself and says he is accursed a second time. You are just plain wrong. Allah is a great deceiver! He has you fooled!!!

According to the uncovered Ezekiel revelation that was revealed by God nearly 2600 years ago to the Israelites, Yahweh stated that he shall have also given His message to the “Hagarite people of Arabia” through His “Messenger Mohamed from Mecca”, because some ancient Priests shall have altered God’s messages previously sent , and some ancient Rabbis had hidden God’s prophecies regarding Mohamed and the Koran… The uncovered Ezekiel prophecies are located within the book entitled, “Preserved for the End of Time: New Uncovered Ezekiel prophecies About Christ’s Return”. The Hebrew translators, Kevas and Walker, provided Strong’s Concordance Numbers above each of the Biblical words, so the reader could see for themselves what God had actually revealed.

          • John_33

            They can’t be the same God. One has a Son, the other doesn’t. One comes to save the Jewish people in the last days, the other commands his followers to kill them all. The new text cannot be from Ezekiel because he would not have prophesied about anything that teaches about a future annihilation of the Jewish people since that contradicts God’s Word.

          • A. Muschelewicz

            John, the Ancient Jews Hid the true translation of Ezekiel because they did not want the Gentiles to see that Yahweh would be upset with their people for hiding the true messages from God. It was prophesied nearly 2600 years ago that Jesus future followers would be wrongly teaching that Jesus is God in the flesh and the Son of God and that Jesus had died for our sins, but that this was all a lie invented by ancient Priests who incorporated idolatry into the actual teachings of Jesus. Many of Today’s Isaelites are using the current wrong translated passages to gain support of todays Christians, so the Christians would think its a sin to go against Israel. The uncovered Ezekiel prophecies are unfolding as prophesied and are correctly translated. I understand your refusal to accept the uncovered prophecies, but if you would take the time to see what was actual revealed, you would see that the God of the Muslims is the same God of the Christians and Jews.

            If not for Jews in Israel there would not b a shred of Judaeo-Christian presence in the entire region. Look at way your muslim brethren are doing to the remaining Christians; beheadings, crucifixions, rapes, slavery. Jesus himself was a Jew and a Rabbi and the entire western culture, morals, ethics are based on Judaism as is Christianity. If not for Jews there would be no Christians at all. WHo do yo think the first Christians were; THEY WERE JEWS and for the first while Christianity was simply a a sect of Judaism.

Zionism means that arabs living in Israel have an equal life to any Jew and full freedom. That is something no arab in ANY islamic country can claim.

          • Rose Munro

            But you people do not understand that the Christianity you are teaching is wrong. For instance please tell me where in the gospels that Yeshua said anything about being born again? There is only one place and that was to Nicodemus in the middle of the night. The only real message our Yeshua had was this “Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand!” Repent means to turn away from sin and not do it anymore so if you are still committing sin you have not repented. Too, Yeshua said, “If you love me, keep my commandments, since the Bible was not written when he said that, the only commandments he could have been talking about is the old law!

          • Moe Rosenhek

            Rose, Im not Christian. I do not follow organized religion per se. My support for ZIONISM and Israel is based purely on international law and what is just. I base it on the good I see coming from that tiny country and what Israeli Jews and in fact Jews worldwide have freely given to this planet; including the ingrates, Israel deniers and Jew haters. Amen.

          • John_33

            Jesus only needs to say something once for it to be true, but there are many references found in the Bible. The message of being born again has always been preached from the start and is central to being saved and knowing God. God taught His people parts of the New Covenant while they were living under the Old. “The just shall live by faith” (Habakkuk 2:4) (Romans 1:17) “be ye holy for I am holy” (Leviticus 11:44) (1 Peter 1:15-16) are good examples of messages that continue on from the Old to the New. The message of being born again is also found in the Old Testament – it’s known as circumcision of the heart. The result of being circumcised in the heart is obedience, love for God and His commandments, and following God in spirit. (Deuteronomy 10:16-17; 30:6-8; Jeremiah 4:4.) That’s why Jesus marveled when Nicodemus didn’t know what it meant to be born again – he was supposed to know! Paul confirms that this is true for Christians in Romans 2:29. Ezekiel 36:26 also prophesies the New Covenant’s spiritual rebirth and is confirmed in 1 John 5:4-5. We can’t keep God’s commandments without being born again. The old man is unable to do it. That’s why Jesus died on the cross so we could be transformed into a new creature so we would be able to obey Him in holiness and truth.

          • No Bull

            “You truly are one sick deluded satanic moron.” …didn’t Jesus say that all the time while he was washing the feet of others?

          • Moe Rosenhek

            How would I know, I wasn’t there as neither were you.

          • John_33

            You are teaching the exact opposite of what the entire Bible says. God didn’t choose Israel so He would kill them. He chose them so they could have life and show the world His glorious Light to Gentiles through the Holy Scriptures that God gave to them at Mount Sinai.

            Here’s what the real Ezekiel said:

            “Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name; after that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid. When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God.” ~ Ezekiel 39:25-29.

            What does the New Testament say?

            “and every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” ~ 1 John 4:3

            “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” ~ 1 Timothy 1:15

          • DD

            Ezekiel 22:28

          • Thomas Thompson

            A. Muschelewicz believe me, it is not hidden in the Bible concerning Yahweh being upset at the Israelites. It is recorded all throughout the Old Testament that Yahweh was angry at the Israelites and wanted to destroy them and that He thought about erasing them as a people from the earth and then it repented Him and He had Mercy on them. In other passages He tells them that if they Obey Him then He will Bless them but if they disobey then He will add all the curses of the Book of the Law unto them and that the nations would hate them and consider them a reproach, (as we clearly see). The gods that all the other nations worship are of their own hearts and imaginations and are not of the True God. God is self-revealing and appeared to the Jewish people and over time passed-on His Laws and Commandments to them that they should Obey, “And if a man keep them, he shall live by them.” So, the imagination that the muslims believe in is a man made delusion of God and not the True Essence of who He is.

            well, we can agree on that for sure. We will both see who has been truly deceived…

            And also, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, only those who do what my Father in heaven wants. On that Day, many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord! Didn’t we prophesy in your name? Didn’t we expel demons in your name? Didn’t we perform many miracles in your name?’ Then I will tell them to their faces, ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!”

          • Thomas Thompson

            Rose Munro it is interesting that you mention the 13th chapter of Isaiah which describes the spirit of the Lord rising up in the Medes who in our time are the Kurds. I watched a news report about them today on BBC that was explaining their situation and ongoing struggle against ISIS who desires to go into Iran and establish an Caliphate and renew the Babylonian practice. What’s furthermore interesting is that the Kurds have had longstanding bitterness and warfare with these people. The people Western Syria, (the Kurds), are also a more lenient group who allow more religious tolerance and also allow their women to dress as they wish and not be covered and have a large population of Christians. I had a thought before that the true essence at the heart of islam is in the Babylonian and I wondered when it would come to an end, and, the Lord said, “Soon;” possibly within the next 30 or 40 years. But, I’ve been seeing as of lately where the Lord’s Spirit does rise up in the hearts of men to bring judgment upon the wicked; (even now, what is going on in the U.S is of the Lord to punish her for her wickedness, and, her fall will be magnificent), and, to punish them for their sins. The world and unbelievers like to say that there is, “One God,” and they are right, there is but they don’t speak this with understanding, rightly discerning His Spirit and the Will of the Lord. There is, “One God,” but not everyone, “Worships Him in Spirit and in Truth,” but instead, in a delusional spirit of error. In the Old Testament it’s written that the Lord would become a lying spirit in their mouth’s. Now we know that God is True but every man, a liar. So, the Lord’s Spirit rises up and brings justice and judgment upon the land to cleanse it if the sin and blood. And, truenot everyone Worships Him in His Spirit and its Truth but there are some who are Praying unto Him and reaching out to walk in this place in God. And, that is the place that we are Commanded to enter into in these specific times so that we can Endure.

But like you said, no one stood up and called them out, no one got up and walked out of the room, NOTHING. Well, even if they manage to get reelected at some point, they’ll still have to stand before God, the greatest Judge of them all, and tell Him why they claimed to be His yet were “ashamed of Him before men.”

    • A. Muschelewicz

      Throughout the Koran, “infidels” and “nonbelievers” are specifically in reference to anyone who does not believe in God, or anyone who worships idols. It does not include Christians and Jews. In the Koran, Jews and Christians are referred to as “People of the Book (Bible)”. During the time of Mohamed, the Pagan worshippers of Arabia were persecuting, killing and terrorizing the first Muslims, and God told them to defend themselves against these barbaric pagans.

      • Moe Rosenhek

        Wrongo. While Christians and Jews are referred to as people of the book, they are also known as the kuffirs and infidels. Go read your koran again.

          Moe, do you read Arabic? In the Quran, Christians are not called kafir… Some of todays Muslims are refering to Christians as infidels because they are worshipping Jesus as God, but that is not in the Quran…. Please go read the newly uncovered Ezekiel prophecies (Preserved for the End of Time: New Uncovered Ezekiel prophecies About Christ’s Return; available on amazon.com) and you will learn that nearly 2600 years ago, Yahweh (God) had revealed to Ezekiel that He shall have also sent His message to the “Hagarite people of Arabia” through “Mohamed of Mecca”, and that He shall have sent them the “Qur’an” for the future believers in God to follow, because some ancient Rabbis and Priest shall have altered and hidden God’s actual messages relayed by Jesus and the previous prophets of God. The uncovered Ezekiel prophecies are rapidly unfolding right before our eyes, exactly as correctly translated…

        Why respect a “religion” that has zero respect and indeed derision for you?

        Don’t believe the propaganda that the early Muslims were persecuted victims. After moving to Medina Muhammad started out making a living by raiding caravans (stealing) from Mecca. Of course the Meccans tried to fight back. Read Robert Spencer’s biography of M.

        Don’t judge Islam by the smiling Muslims you meet in the West but by how it’s actually practiced in majority Muslim lands where they are in power – it ain’t pretty. Know that Christians are the most persecuted minority, mainly by Muslims (search it).

    The USA was founded on God and His Word and therefore has always been a Christian Nation,by christian I mean the Trinity (Father,Son,and Holy Spirit)that there is only one way to heaven and that is through and by Jesus Christ.Now as a people we let all worship and serve as they see fit to,but a true born again christian knows that anything contrary to this is a false religion and we’re not to take part of such things.This is a big world and made up of many people,all created by the Lord and each is beautiful in their own way and we all need to be respectful of each other as human beings and of His creation.Yet we know that as a nation we have seen many changes…and we are not what we once were,we have a President that claims we are no longer a Christian nation,a military that her Chaplin’s aren’t even allowed to mention the name of Christ publicly,school children that are not allowed to carry bibles or to tell others of Christ in school,and the list goes on,now this,a muslim praying to allah over the House of Representatives.One might ask what is America coming too, since we as a nation has and are turning our backs on God,a God that has blessed our nation beyond words,a country that many long to come to and make a home in and work to see their dreams come true,a nation where you can serve & worship God the way you see fit.Look around and see, what once was said to be the greatest Nation of the world and the world leader,is no longer,and as she turns her back on Israel(the apple of Gods eye)our only true friends in the Eastern part of the world and pushes them to give up Jerusalem and even more of their land,according to scripture we are going to pay and I beleive pay dearly for these sins and the many ….others we have committed against our Lord unless we repent.Let me ask your opp. do you see our government repenting and changing her wicked ways???

      The Christians (Puritans) that came to America (my direct relatives) savagely killed and enslaved the people that owned this land.

      If God exists, he would have been weeping seeing the bloodshed that this nation was founded upon.

      Christian Nation? Not likely.

    You want prayer in government… there you have it.

  • Jonah Michelle

    Wow. The representatives of the United States have now openly invited Satan to rule in their meetings. BUT, What the enemy intends for evil God will use for good! He, Yahweh – THE Only True God and Sovereign Lord is in control, even when it seems evil is taking over. I can confidently say that everything will happen according to His plans, but the True Church of Christ needs to get in line with it!!!

  • Frank

    You fuckers need to get your heads out of your asses. We cant pray at a football game but this piece of shit can pray in House of Representatives. This is another kick in the nuts to all the people of this country. To who ever made this happen I hope one of his buddies takes over your plane ride home.

    • No Bull

      Pray whenever you want, where ever you want. Just keep it to yourself.

  • Truthhurts24

    Man does America hate The God of the Holy Bible! to tell christians that they cannot pray or worship in any institution but Islam gets a free pass with benefits on top that is beyond pitiful. Its time for christians to get prepared to be made complete outcasts of society because this government has totally cast God out of this country. Judgement can not be far away now for America and no political party is going to save this country from Gods wrath.

  • Donna Haro-Saldana

    This is insanity!!!!!!!!

  • Peter Tefft

    It comes down to this when some people comment that KKK and Nazi’s are Christians. Not everyone who says they are Christians are Christians. Its not a name or a title by any means. Its a living real belief in the work of Christ on the Cross and much more. To just say you are a Christian for a title or a record of identification is completely out of touch with what it means to be a Christian. The world is coming to an end and only those who have truly given themselves to God through Jesus will endure the 2nd coming. If you say you are a Christian and it doesn’t have much meaning or life changing results, you could possibly and probably are not a Christian.

    The House, The Senate, and every Federal Building belongs to WE THE PEOPLE of this United States, and the majority of the people do not want anything to do with Islam imposed on us. This should not have happened and whoever allowed this to happen should be removed from whatever position they hold.

  • Cassie

    In my opinion, religion has no place whatsoever in our government. You cannot seriously connect a follower of a different religion praying as similar to Hitler’s uprising. Seriously, how close-minded can you be? Separation of church and state you damn bigots. Also, Hitler had Gott mit uns everywhere, which translates to God with us, so he can indeed be considered a Christian. Shut up and learn to history. Stop discriminating. Your bigotry, ignorance and discrimination is outstanding. If there is a hell, you belong there.

    We have found out that our representatives serve only one god: MONEY! They don’t give a shit where it comes from. We have been betrayed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  • Rani Rich

    Someone want to tell me why this Scum is in our House? Three thousand American’s died on 9/11 and now we’re betrayed with the Scum in our House!

    Even worse is the issue of Muslim / Islam 14 century old Slave Trades Business whereas little girl’s and women are genitally mutilated, raped, bought, sold, enslaved, traded and slaughtered. Muslim / Islam is an All Male Cult against every living female! There has never been a bigger “War On Women” than Muslim / Islam, the pro’s in Human trafficking and sex slaves. Sharia Law which is Muslim / Islam religion is unconstitutional and must be banned from our country! For our government to embrace and invite into our House such a barbaric mentality is a loss of all morality in whole!

  • Adam Newago

    WTF when will we take this country back . Islam worships a false god. Mohammad was a liar and allah is satan

  • Arrie

    I truly have to say I’m am sorry for the nation of America. You are now, it seem, at the same place where South Africa is – the abandonment of God and submission to YHVH God in government or any national level. The UK capitulated by themselves long ago. Who is left – maybe to some extent Australia. Yet, the gospel of God is preached amidst this all. Amen!
    Yup – comes to think of it, sounds about right.
    The great deception is truly in force and running like the force it should be.
    Hallelujah, I cannot wait to be with Yeshua in the new world.
    Man it’s so exciting, I feel I can fetch my dancing shoes and praise the Mighty Lord, creator of earth and heaven – and the new one to come – man it’s sounds like celebrations are coming.
    The abomination is slowly moving into its place of power over earth, waiting to lay claim to the temple of God – you can just feel it – it is arriving.

    This is so awesome! What an amazing man to take on bridging this gap of intolerance! That is the most wonderful part of being an American is allowing each other the freedom to express our beliefs or not! Congress is finally doing something worthwhile by modeling tolerance! It is so sad to see American Muslims being held in lower esteem for things that are happening in Syria and Iraq related to ISIS.

  • gregzotta

    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Creeping Sharia!! No Moderate
    Muslims

    There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim, because they wouldn’t be Muslims. If you are a Muslim, then you believe in the teachings of Muhammed and the goal of Islam is “World Islam” as stated in the Q’uran. Therefore, if you do not
    believe in those teachings, then you should not be a Muslim. The problem is
    once you are a Muslim you are always a Muslim.

    Islam is a political and military system masquerading as a religion. Muslims can lie to the infidel to promote Islam. The Muslim Brotherhood calls for a “Civilization-Jihadist Process,” in which they would destroy the Western civilization from within. Radical Muslims believe the infidels will have to convert to Islam, be enslaved or be killed. They state, we do not want to democratize Islam, we want to Islamize democracy. That is what we want.

    In the Christian faith, it is a sin to commit murder and you can go to Hell. In Islam, if you kill the infidel and die in the action you are martyred and promised paradise and 72 Virgins.

    In the United States we do not want to become a Muslim nation and be put under Sharia law, with Honor Killings. That is why we must remain vigilant to protect our freedom. Look at what has been happening in Germany, Great Britain and France.

    Allah is the god of HAGAR and Egyptian woman — ISIS. It is no coincidence that the Egyptians worshipped a goddess names ISIS and we are dealing with ISIS. King Solomon said “Everything old is new again.” At those who say that Nazis and KKK people are Christian—they are NOT. Jesus criteria for being one of His followers is “If you love Me, keep My Commandments.” Nazis, KKK, are murderers. Thus they do not keep His Commandments.

  • Marlene Young McMurtry

    Watching this footage makes me want to puke!!!

  • Becky

    Separation of Church and State? Huh?

  • Elaine

    Okay, first of all stop.

    As an avid researcher on religion, Islam is actually an incredibly tolerant religion with many similarities to that of the Christian faith. Islam, however, gains a negative reputation among the Western hemisphere due to the attacks of 9-11. But those few who are extremists (and believe me when I say there are religious extremists in every religion) should not mark the rest of the followers of Allah and of the Islam faith a terrorist or bringer of death.

    Christians are supposed to preach tolerance and acceptance. It is not your place to judge, as it is (I’m assuming you are a Christian) your God’s place in the eyes of your religion. Luke 6:26-36 says, “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.”

    Matthew 7:1-2 also says, “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.”

    Myself, I have no religion because I have taken the time to diligently dissect each religion and discover that they are all connected in some way or another. Organized religion has led to war and famine for centuries. And, if someone took the time the time to actually study religions and get to the basis of each one that has been founded, they could see this.

    Now, back to the story at hand. In the US, we are free to worship our respective god or gods. It’s a basic human liberty that has been provided in the US Constitution. Just because someone worships a god that is not the god you worship, that does not make them wrong. In their minds, they are worshiping the true god while you worship a false one. Perception is the reality of the person perceiving it, you guys.

    The Representatives invited a Muslim man to pray for them. This does not make them bad Christians, it makes them tolerant of other religions. They bowed their head out of respect, just as people bow their heads during “moments of personal reflection” in schools. Believe it or not, the United States of America is NOT a Christian country. Why is this? Because we purposefully do not have an established religion or language — that’s what makes us so great!

    The Representatives may have listened to the prayer to Allah, but they could have easily been praying to their own God instead of praying to Allah. They were being respectful of a guest, not casting their beliefs aside.

      Elaine…you’ll look good in a burqa…which, I’m sure, you’ll enjoy wearing.

      • Elaine

        Why would I not enjoy wearing a burqa? It holds the same religious significance as a Christian wearing a cross necklace or other piece of jewelry. It’s not a punishment to wear one. I wouldn’t necessarily need to wear a burqa, as I am not affiliated with Islam, but they are beautiful garments. I simply study the religions, I do not follow them. Just as I have studied Judaism, Christianity, Paganism, Buddhism and many, many more. I just wanted to clarify some misconceptions about this article is all, dear.

    Here’s the irony.. one religion gets to dominate the entire religious discourse of a country, and when room is made for one different prayer all of a sudden the moral fabric is decaying, and analogies are made to the Nazis and claims that Christians are being persecuted. So Christians both a. should have the right to dominate the public discourse and b. see themselves as a persecuted minority. Let the Muslims have a prayer… Jesus would 🙂

    This heavily trained muslim will never present a verse from his demonic-koran that could be used to denounce their islamic-terrorists.

  • Dragon

    What I can’t believe is how fast this comment section devolved into a bunch of children screaming about whose religion if the true religion, instead of a discussion about the fact that our nation is under attack from within by a religion/belief system that is totally the antithesis of what the country is supposed to stand for. I don’t care what you believe, or who you worship; that’s your choice. What I care about is that not a single member of our elected Congress had the balls to stand up and say that this was wrong. If they won’t say it, I will. Islamic beliefs do not work in the United States. Their religious laws stand in stark contradiction to the founding principles of the United States, and it is long past time we stopped bowing down and capitulating to the politically correct crowd. It’s time we all stand together and tell the Muslims…either you conform to our laws and principles, or get the hell out.

    So the Democrats brought him in to pray to the false god allah? What
    happened to their wanting a separation between government and church?
    Sounds like this was intentional to slap the Republican Christians in
    the face for kicking their sorry buts out of office. HELLOOOO!!!! This
    kind of crap is why you don’t deserve to “Serve” in any capacity. Wake
    up! The MAJORITY of Americans are Christians! The MAJORITY of muslims
    are not American Citizens!!!! Stop worrying about stepping on their toes
    and start protecting “We The People”. You know, the ones that your
    supposed to be serving. We are not here to appease you, you are here to
    protect OUR rights!!!! This is why the world thinks we are weak as a
    nation. ISIS said that the Islam flag would be flying over our
    Whitehouse and I laughed. I watched this horrible act today and I
    realized that they aren’t trying to defeat us in battle, they are coming
    in the back door and taking over one piece at a time and our government
    is just going to let them because the PC police says so. To hell with
    the PC police! Get those terrorists out of our country! Give us back our
    country! I’m not ashamed of my country, but I am ashamed of our

    The House of Representatives always opens with a prayer. Oh right, you people are mad because ONE time they have a Muslim prayer. Christians are claiming to be persecuted, of course because they didn’t get their way 100% of the time.

    • Pamela Rather Powell

      No, it’s because every time Christians pray in public or wear an article of clothing that has a Christian saying the Muslims or some other group complain they are offended by it and then Christians are told they can’t do that anymore but yet the complaining party gets to public speak about their beliefs and are able to wear clothing identifying or promoting theirs, that is what my problem is

      If you want to honor the rapist prophet and his moon god feel free to do so. But according to the comments by my fellow Christians we are not willing to do so because there is only one person worthy of bowing our knees to…and that is our Father God in Jesus Christ.

      You don’t do this to the honor and memory of our sons and daughters in the military while we are at war with Islam. Our so called “representatives” have shamed them and angered me.

    The Clerk of the House points out “The chaplain opens each day’s session with prayer, for which he receives a salary…It is not stipulated that prayers be short, or that Members stand during the service, but brevity and reverence are usually observed.”[1]
    They do this for every religion that does the prayers. It does not mean they worship the religion of the person praying.

    Chaplains are elected as individuals and not as representatives of any religious community, body, or organization. As of 2011, all House Chaplains have been Christian but can be members of any religion or faith group. Guest Chaplains, recommended by congressional members to deliver the session’s opening prayer in place of the House Chaplain, have represented many different religious groups, including Judaism and Islam.

    It is shameful that an Imam who has a history of calling for the death of Jews and who follows a false religion which calls for the death of anyone who doesn’t embrace Islam, is permitted to pray in the House of Representatives. What has our nation become…

    Christians are being put on notice. We have absolutely no representation in Congress. Rule number one, thou shalt have no other God’s but me. The list of nations and kingdoms that have been destroyed for worshiping false gods is legion.

    We’ve turned our backs on Israel. We have aided and abetted the Muslim Brotherhood across the Middle East with arms and billions of dollars of U.S. tax money…money they took from your pockets. We’ve made eight years of our son’s and daughters spilling their blood in the military to fight terrorism and give Iraq a chance at freedom…we’ve made it meaningless. We have abandoned Pastor Saed and are making a nuclear deal with Iran essentially leaving him behind. Notice in the written part of the prayer that when the Imam says God it is written “god”. This is using the name of our God (not Allah) and printing it as if our God is a false god.

    Many Christians say “If the Bible says it, I believe it” By what it says in those same scriptures there is only one thing to say about America at this point…WE ARE DONE !!!

    Well if he’s so nice…send him right over to Iran to get Pastor Saeed out of prison in Iran who is being tortured for his Christian beliefs. Otherwise, he’s just another pagan on the way to destruction in the eyes of God, not someone we should be having lead our nation in prayers to his false god and sexually deviant prophet.

    Muslims do not believe Yeshua (Jesus) is God. Ask them. They will deny it. That is how you will know the spirit of antichrist. Test the spirit to see wether it is of God by asking “Is Yeshua (Jesus) God, come in the flesh and dwelt among us?”

    This nation is not a “Christian” nation. It is a pagan nation. Repent, for the Kingdom of Yahwah – not Allah – is come. Torah or Sharia? What will you choose?

    Allowing this will incur God`s wrath! I`m afraid the powers that be are sending us down a slippery path to destruction! This was prophesied to occur in the end times (chrislam is an abomination to God) Please forgive us Father!

    My understanding is that it is against the constitution for political representatives to support a specific religion in political venues and buildings (owned by the people). You make a deal out of this iman prayer to allah but I saw on christian tv paul ryan praying to jesus inside a government building representing congress and this goes directly against the founding fathers and our constitution. It used to be understood but now you holier than thow zealots are trying to rewrite history and the laws simply in order to hold the power which is not given to one specific belief. That is the nature of freedom of religion (all religions) and the “separation of church and state” Liars lie deceivers deceive and the power hungry steal power. Your false religions are disgusting to me and your mangods, like your pharaohs before them. We are all created by the almighty creator as whole, free, and perfect beings. No man, mangod or false teachings may take that right nor be forced to choose one nor the other belief……………….Especially to make your numbers stronger simply to wield power over others oppressively…………………

    Allah is quite different from God of Christianity. Allah has no Son, but God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, God of Christian FaIth has Son, which is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is Son of God. Son of Man is Man, Son of Dog is Dog, Son of God is God.
    God of Jesus Christ taught the Redemption which is the Key Cornerstone of Christianity. So, God sent His Beloved Son Jesus Christ, and Jesus took over the sins of the world upon His shoulder and was crucified on the Cross. Jesus was punished for the sins of the world and paid the full price for the sins of the world by His Own Blood. Therefore as long as anyone believe this truth, he or she is saved and forgiven from their sins by virtue of the Blood of Jesus Christ. In Islam there is no Redemption. If any god forgive any criminal without punishing his or her sin, that god commits the sin too. In all other religions of the world than Christianity, there is no Redemption and therefore they demand their believers to do good works. But In Christianity, Jesus Christ was punished for our sins and for all the sins of the world. Only if anyone believes this Truth, he or she will be forgiven. If not the sin of Unbelief will remain as the grievous and horrendous, and mortal sin.
    Prayer to Allah means the denial of Son of God, Jesus Christ. Whosoever denies that Jesus Christ is Son of God, belongs to Anti-Christ ( 1 John 4:3, 5:5) In Islam there is no Son of God. Confessing Allah is the same as the God of Christianity is Denial of Son of God Jesus Christ.
