The party of evil strikes again.
Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is moving to eliminate the God reference from the oath administered to witnesses testifying before the panel, as part of a new rules package expected to be approved this week, according to a draft obtained exclusively by Fox News.
The draft reveals that the House Committee on Natural Resources would ask witnesses to recite only, “Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?”
The rules proposal places the words “so help you God” in red brackets, indicating they are slated to be cut. The words “under penalty of law” are in red text, indicating that Democrats propose to add that phrasing to the oath.
The draft rules also remove the phrase “his or her” throughout the document, changing those two pronouns to “their.” The rules additionally modify all references to the committee’s “Chairman” to instead refer only to the committee’s “Chair.”
Other rules changes relate to expanding the committee’s authority over natural gas in Alaska and fossil-fuel resources.
While many federal oaths include the phrase “so help me God,” some — most notably the presidential oath of office — do not.
The full committee is set to vote on the new language this week, and the rules would take effect immediately if adopted. Other committees were still in the process of finalizing their rules on Monday.
“It is incredible, but not surprising, that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of their first acts in the majority,” House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., told Fox News. “They really have become the party of Karl Marx.”
The proposed change has not been the first time wicked Democrats have sought to strike references to God in official party documents. In 2012, the floor of the Democratic National Convention erupted over a sudden move to restore to the platform a reference to God and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — after heavy criticism from Republicans for initially omitting them. Democrats, though, were hardly in agreement over the reversal.

“That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” ? First they take away the Creator and then they take away the Rights.
The Democrats have proven time and time again they are a godless lot. Democrats only use God and the Bible when they believe it wins them votes. These people will remove all good things from America. I mean..we are talking a party that believes in ripping the unborn apart.
The left’s religion is government. They hate all that is good and will do everything in their power to remove that good.
So help me Satan is more up their alley.

New Gay Bishop Says God Is A Woman
I would never attend the Episcopal Church as a Christian. They have turned the gospel upside down on its head. Rev. Thomas Brown, who is married to a fellow priest, was ordained as a bishop of the diocese of Maine in the Episcopal Church June 22. Immediately following his ordination, Brown referred to God as a “she” twice in the Nicene Creed. I guess I’m old school… but I refer to God as a ‘he’. His gender doesn’t matter to me but his commandments and directives surely do.
“She is worshipped and glorified. She has spoken through the Prophets,” the just-ordained Bishop Brown stated, referring to the Holy Spirit. I find that offensive and nothing short of political pandering. The Nicene Creed was written 1,638 years ago and only uses masculine pronouns to refer to God. Oddly enough, the microphones at the Cathedral of St. Luke put forth Bishop Curry’s voice just fine for most of the creed, except for when he referred to God as a ‘she’.
From The Daily Caller:
“Deacon Todd Thomas of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington told the Daily Caller that he has never heard an Episcopal priest use female pronouns in the creed. Individual bishops and priests can, however, change words and phrases in the Nicene Creed, Deacon Thomas explained. He cautioned any changes to the creed should be done “in conversation” with the lay people.
“Deacon Thomas told the Daily Caller he has heard Episcopal priests use female pronouns for God outside of the context of official creeds.
“The Episcopal church has a tradition of interpreting the Book of Proverbs’ mentions of “Lady Wisdom” as referring to the Holy Spirit, Deacon Thomas said.
“Inclusive language” of God is encouraged by the Episcopal Church. This “means the use of male and female imagery and metaphors in a balanced way to express the truths we know of God,” the Episcopal Dictionary of the Church says.
“Bishop Brown describes himself as a “servant leader who strives for justice among all people and who continues to address white privilege, dismantle racism, and work for the full inclusion of LGBTQ people in the Body of Christ.”
“The bishop met his husband, Father Tom Mousin, when Father Mousin was serving as a pastor in the United Methodist Church. Brown’s husband has since converted to the Episcopal Church, and been ordained in that church.
“It is possible that Father Mousin will take up a position at a parish in his husband’s diocese, he said on Facebook, explaining he would have oversight from an outside bishop.”

In 2018, the Episcopal Church mandated that all dioceses would perform same-sex marriages. It doesn’t matter whether the bishop objects or not, they are commanded to conduct the ceremony. William Love, the Episcopal bishop of Albany, New York is in a state of partial inhibition because he has declined to allow priests to celebrate same-sex weddings. In other words, he’s between a rock and a hard place over his church’s doctrine.
More from The Daily Caller:
“Twenty years before this resolution, Episcopal bishops at the Lambeth Conference rejected “homosexual practice as incompatible with Scripture.” They also voted that they “cannot advise the legitimizing or blessing of same-sex unions nor ordaining those involved in same gender unions.”
“A wider battle is brewing in the denomination over the subject of gay marriage. Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby faces opposition from the Global Anglican Future Conference for inviting bishops in same-sex relationships to the last Lambeth Conference. At the same time, Episcopal church leaders have objected to Welby’s decision to not invite bishops’ same-sex spouses to the conference.
“Bishop Brown’s ordination is the second time a gay man with a partner was elected a bishop in the Episcopal Church. Gene Robinson was elected a bishop in 2003 but has since divorced his partner, Mark Andrew. Mary Glasspool, a lesbian married to Becki Sander, was elected a bishop suffragan in 2009 and was present at Brown’s ordination.”
My, how times have changed and the Episcopal Church no longer resembles what it once was.
My heart is filled with gratitude: for the Episcopal Diocese of Maine,who saw in Thomas James Brown, my spouse what I…
From 1990 to 1994, Brown worked as the director of education for Planned Parenthood in South Central Michigan. Why am I not surprised? He condones the slaughter of the unborn as well. Figures. In 2018, the General Convention of the Episcopal Church called for “women’s reproductive health and reproductive health procedures to be treated as all other medical procedures.”
Silly me, I have always thought that if you are a Christian, you follow the teachings of the Bible. You don’t twist them to fit your immorality, whims, or political agenda. If you do, you aren’t really a Christian, now are you? There is no such thing as ‘woke’ parishioners and clergy… just faux Christians.
Former Miss Iraq: Ilhan Omar Trying To Push Sharia Law On America
This is certainly refreshing. A former Miss Iraq is speaking up against Ilhan Omar and her push for Sharia law in America. This beauty queen was forced to flee her native country after posting a selfie of herself and Miss Israel. She tore into Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over it and she adamantly says that the congresswoman does not represent her as a Muslim.
“Ilhan Omar does not represent me as a Muslim — does not represent millions of Muslims in the Middle East,” Sarah Idan, who lives in the U.S. told “The Sara Carter Show.” “You know like in Arab countries we call her the Muslim Brotherhood,” she added. “They are extremist Muslims, Sunni Muslims, who are now working together with Iran against all the Arab countries,” she said. “They’re working now with Hezbollah, with Turkey, with all that. You know the thing is about this organization, they are extremist Muslims, they’re Jihadis, and they have this ideology that they want to control the world.”
I really like this woman… she speaks the unvarnished truth and is absolutely fearless. Women like Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Idan said, exploit progressive sentiments. “They feed on the sympathy of people,” Idan added. Yes, and Omar is part of the communist Farmer-Labor Party in MN. So, she pushes not only Marxism but elitist Sharia law as well.
“Her remarks came in the wake of a Twitter battle in which Idan accused Omar of trying to “export” the same ideology that she fled from in the Middle East. “First was the Middle East, then Europe & now the USA. I fled from the same ideology you’re trying to export here,” she said.
“In an interview with i24 News, Idan expanded on the accusation, saying, “It’s an ideology of trying to push Islam to make it the ruling system of the country.”
“She continued by saying that Omar angered a lot of Muslims in the U.S. because she always says, “I speak for every Muslim in this country.”
“She made a lot of us angry — moderate Muslims who escaped Sharia, who are trying to push for moderate Islam and a reform of Islam,” Idan said.
Ilhan Omar is always promoting an Islamist agenda while claiming to speak for all the Muslims in America, including the moderates who oppose Sharia, says Former Miss Iraq Sarai Idan.📺 More i24ne.ws/VZC830n1FWe

“In an earlier tweet, Idan described the Minnesota Representative’s agenda as “anti-American.”
“Seriously @IlhanMN this is your intellectual come back?” she asked. “I said as a MUSLIM! I don’t stand for your anti-American, anti-Semitic, Muslim Brotherhood agenda using this democracy to further YOUR & YOUR FRIENDS Islamic socialism goals of dividing & weakening our country.”
“The former Miss Universe contestant, who grew up in Iraq under the regime of Saddam Hussein, fled the country after receiving threats that her Iraqi citizenship would be withdrawn because she posted a selfie with Miss Israel.”
Two years ago, Idan’s family left Iraq after she received backlash over modeling in a bikini and posting photos taken with Miss Israel Adar Gandelsman on social media.
The Iraqi government threatened to cancel her citizenship over the “selfie.” In addition, Idan and her family received a number of death threats, some allegedly from Hamas, as well as from the Iraqi and conservative Muslim communities abroad.
“Two years ago, I represented Iraq at Miss Universe. I posted a photo with Miss Israel on social media. I was told to remove it and forced to denounce Israeli police,” she said in a speech at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in June. “I received death threats. Since then I can no longer return to my homeland. Why did the Iraqi government fail to condemn the threats, or allow my freedom of speech?”

Idan equated Omar’s support for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim advocacy group that critics say has ties to terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah, to those terrorists themselves. Good for her and spot on.
I don’t agree with the Islamic religion. It is a warrior religion and is flawed in my viewpoint… but I could exist with a reformed Islam as this woman is condoning.
Seriously @IlhanMN this is your intellectual come back?
I said as a MUSLIM! I dont stand for your anti-American, anti-Semitic, Muslim Brotherhood agenda using this democracy to further YOUR & YOUR FRIENDS Islamic socialism goals of dividing & weakening our country. @SaraCarterDC https://t.co/H4OYrdM9Y6 pic.twitter.com/7CuYDy44DF

Idan was born and raised in Baghdad and taught herself English at age 13 by listening to western music. After the U.S.-led Iraq invasion in 2003, she moved to Syria. She returned to Iraq and worked as a translator for the U.S. military before emigrating to America. She describes herself as a secular Muslim.
She was crowned Miss Iraq in America in 2016 and Miss Universe Iraq the following year. She represented Iraq at the Miss Universe 2017 pageant in Las Vegas.
It’s clear that @IlhanMN will dismiss your voice and hardships as a Muslim immigrant of color simply if you don’t live in Minnesota #MN05 but she has repeatedly represented the Muslim Brotherhood and their affiliates @CAIRNational 🤷🏽♀️https://t.co/DO11ExyEG8

Contrast that with Omar’s actions:
“The Minnesota congresswomen headlined a CAIR event this spring in which stated: “CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
“Critics blasted the congresswoman for downplaying 9/11 as just “something” with the president tweeting out a video of Omar’s comments juxtaposed between 9/11 imagery.
“The 37-year-old freshman congresswoman also has a long history of anti-Semitic comments including calling Israel “evil,” suggested the American Israel Public Affairs Committee pays off politicians to be pro-Israel, and accused pro-Israel Jews of having duel loyalties.
“Omar apologized for the first two statements calling them “anti-Semitic” but has since said critics use charges of anti-Semitism to silence her.”
The only reason that Omar is in office is that a bunch of Somalian Muslims were relocated to the U.S. and there is a pocket of them in her district. It was just enough to get her elected so she could spout hatred against Israel and push Sharia law while causing as much chaos for Americans in general as possible. After all, they are nothing but infidels to her.
As Idan has stated: “Freedom to express one’s views is not confined to the district in which one lives.”
