“Emanuel Cleaver II is a United Methodist pastor and an American politician who is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Cleaver represents Missouri’s 5th congressional district, elected in 2005.” And, yes, he’s a Democrat. Yep. The same political party that voted God to be cast aside.
So, let’s see… “Emanuel”… Emanandawomanuel with himself being a self-envisioned god, cancelling out the One, True God?
Maybe he’s got an explanation, like poking fun at Nancy Pelosi. But there is no excuse, is there?
That anyone would have to ask about this is indicative of what’s coming in 2021.
It’s not going to be a good year for the free exercise of religion. No, it’s not.

Why are some “men of G*D” more like a sleeper cell, these days? I know, wolves in sheep’s clothing, but Father has a point that the prayer has an element of (how shall I put it?) satire, that would play better in a TV script, than in a prayer. On the other hand, it IS Congress, so perhaps it is in perfect consanace with the level of seriousness displayed by that body. Which leads me to believe that the “prayer” was meant to be a “teachable moment.” [retch]
“consonance,” not consanace! I was raised in a barn.
So was Jesus
…… heard that this morning. Stupid nonsense in a prayerful moment. That hurts.
So very sad that the Demoncrats think mockery of the Word is the answer to everything. How little they realize what they are doing to their souls.

Sexual Orientation vs. Gender Identity: Sexual orientation refers to an individual’s attraction to another person romantically, emotionally, and sexually. Common sexual orientations include heterosexual (straight), gay, lesbian, bisexual, and asexual.
Sexual orientation is different than gender identity. Sexual orientation is about who you want to be with. Gender identity is about who you are. This means that being transgender is not the same thing as being gay, lesbian, or bisexual, although some transgender individuals also identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, or asexual. Every individual has both a sexual orientation and a gender identity.

Transgender man or trans man (noun): An individual who identifies as a man and who was assigned a different gender at birth. Trans men may also use the term female-to-male (FTM or F2M) to describe their identity, but trans man is used more frequently because it respects the individual’s current identity rather than a previous one.
Transgender woman or trans woman (noun): An individual who identifies as a woman and who was assigned a different gender at birth. Trans women may also use the term male-to-female (MTF or M2F) to describe their identity, but trans woman is used more frequently because it respects the individual’s current identity rather than a previous one.
Transgender (adj.): An umbrella term for people whose gender identity and/or expression is different from cultural expectations based on their sex classification. Transgender is often abbreviated to trans. Being transgender does not imply any specific sexual orientation. Transgender people may identify as straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, et cetera.
Transitioning (verb): The processes by which an individual changes from one gender to another. There are three general aspects to transitioning: social (e.g., name, pronouns, interactions), medical (e.g., hormones, surgery), and legal (e.g., gender marker, name change). A trans individual may pursue any combination, or none, of these as part of their transition.
Huh? Confusing isn’t it?
In a “simpler” time (before we cast in our lot with the demon) grammar was a grammatical construct. In English there were (and still are) three genders: masculine, feminine and neuter. In all languages there were (and still are) two sexes whose purpose is far more noble than keeping speech reasonably coherent. What fools these mortals be seems to be THE truly unanswerable question. God, please continue to have mercy on Thy most vain and foolish creatures.
