Our country allows free expression for everyone including Christians, Jews, Muslims, and other religions.
But it seems that some people are offended by Christians prayers especially the liberals in our country!
Pennsylvania state House swore in its first-ever Muslim woman on Monday.
Movita Johnson-Harrell won her Philadelphia seat in a special election earlier this month. A mother and grandmother, she arrived in Harrisburg with 55 guests, more than half of whom she said were fellow Muslims.
Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell said that she and her family were greatly offended at the prayer that had overt worship of Jesus Christ.
John-Harrell is quoted as calling the prayer, “highly offensive to me, my guests, and other members of the House.”
“It blatantly represented the Islamophobia that exists among some leaders — leaders that are supposed to represent the people,” Johnson-Harrell said in a statement to the Pennsylvania Capital Star. “I came to the Capitol to help build bipartisanship and collaborations regardless of race or religion to enhance the quality of life for everyone in the Commonwealth.”
The prayer was made by Rep. Stephanie Borowicz who refused to apologize after being told that Johnson-Harrell was offended.
That’s how I pray every day,” she said to a reporter and added, “Oh no, I don’t apologize ever for praying.”
The Pennsylvania state Democratic party called the prayer an “Islamophobic message,” and Pennsylvania House Democratic Party Whip Jordan Harris excoriated Borowicz in a scathing statement.
“Today, we saw religion weaponized in the House chamber in what could be considered a gross attempt to intimidate, demean and degrade a Muslim state representative in the presence of her family, friends and guests,” said Harris.
“On a day that should be celebrated across Pennsylvania as we see the first Muslim woman sworn into office,” he continued, “we instead started off with a rambling, at times incoherent prayer that consisted of weaponizing the name of Jesus while dipping into partisan rhetoric of President Donald Trump.”
Republican Majority Leader Bryan Cutler, of Lancaster County, also spoke. He said he would never ask a member to go against their beliefs.
