Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), a United Methodist minister, opened the first session of the 117th Congress on Sunday, January 3rd, by praying in the name of a Hindu god, and ending with a comment on gender identity by saying “Amen, and A-woman.”
“A-woman?” What in the actual?!?!
‘Amen’ means ‘so be it.’ It comes from the Hebrew ‘āmēn’, which means “certainty, truth, and verily.”
It’s like the word ‘history’, has nothing to do with men (his), it’s from the ancient Greek “gnosis” meaning ‘to know’ which evolved into ‘historia’ meaning ‘ inquiry, the act of seeking knowledge.’
Ah, knowledge…a thing people are lacking today.
