Dems Enraged by Christian Pastor’s House Invocation

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 2/16/2024 11:15:53 PM

A coalition of Democrats in the U.S. House, led by self-proclaimed atheist Rep. Jared Huffman, has written to Speaker Mike Johnson to express members’ rage over a Christian pastor’s recent House invocation, and to express their intolerance for his views. It was Pastor Jack Hibbs of Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills who had been invited to deliver the invocation and, as a Christian, spoke of a “coming day of judgment.”Democrats responded by claiming Hibbs is “radical Christian Nationalist who helped fuel the January 6th insurrection and [who] has a long record of hateful vitriol toward non-Christians, immigrants, and members of the LGBTQ community.”

More and more, I find it difficult to comprehend how any Christian can be a Democrat. I have a very religious Catholic friend who's a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat and he'll never abandon the party. What will it take to change the hearts and minds of Christians who continue to vote against their own interests?

Pastor Jack Hibbs is fearless. He is going to do the will of God and not the will of atheistic politicians or anyone else. Remember, when you throw a stone into a pack of dogs, the one who howls is the one that got hit.

FTA: "The report explained the Democrats told Johnson, who had invited Hibbs, that Hibbs’ reference to “national sins” offended them." Sinners are always offended when their sin is called what it is. The fact that their sin offends Almighty God should be their concern.

I went and watched the video from the floor of the House. Pastor Hibbs gave one of the best invocations that place has been witness to for a LONG time. I have commented before over the last two decades how wimpy to the point of insulting to the Lord Jesus MOST formal House and Senate (supposedly Christian) invocations are nowadays. Most do fancy word salads to avoid using the Name of Jesus. I know some will remember the good Methodist pastor in Dallas who was told what and how to pray at Dubya’s Inauguration. He ignored all direction and prayed one of the best bold Biblical prayers ever. Heh-heh, I loved the way Speaker Mike Johnson said “Amen!” immediately after as he stood nearby. Thank you Pastor Hibbs. Glory to God!

Get Ready to hear the phrase "white Christian Nationalist" add infinitum in the coming election months... Just like "climate denier" and "election denier" those charges are meant to shut down rational discussion dead in its tracks to SHUT YOU UP. So much for the 1st Amendment guarntee of religious freeom and free speech... Congress has traditionally started with prayer from the first day it was convened.

Joe Biden was off on yet another vacation at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware on Friday for the long weekend. That was after spending a couple of hours in East Palestine, Ohio, finally making it there after more than a year of promising to go see the people adversely affected by environmental concerns after a train derailment. But while he was in Rehoboth Beach on Saturday, reporters managed to corral him outside St. Edmond's Church and ask him a few questions. I'm not sure where the handlers were, but they fell down on the job here.

Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferer Rob Reiner appeared on MSNBC this week to promote his new film about ‘Christian Nationalism’ and used the segment to explain that he understands real Christianity better than Christians. His documentary is obviously just his latest attempt to demonize conservatives and Trump supporters, yet he tries to suggest that the project is somehow not bashing Christians. Isn’t it hilarious when people on the far left claim to speak for conservatives and Christians?

President Trump held another one of his massive political rallies Saturday night in Waterford Township, Michigan. The rally was held one day after a New York City judge ordered him to pay $355 million to New York State for paying his business loans off on time and with interest. This case could possibly be the start of the end of the United States as we know it if it is not overturned. The unprecedented lawfare suits against America’s favorite president has not put a dent in his popularity with voters. In fact, it is having the opposite effect.

A third year has passed since the death of Rush Limbaugh. The day of the sad news, millions of people were sensible of a loss. Something they depended on for reassurance, reinforcement, confidence, strength, amusement, and interest was now gone and never would come again. Limbaugh was an optimist, and optimists are like bonfires. The shivering gathered about him for warmth -- those fearing an awful and incomprehensible transformation in their country, those to whom the triumph of Marxism looked to be inevitable. His listeners had this consolation -- that at the appointed hour the ebullient voice would issue from the radio,

MSNBC host Katy Tur recently questioned if it was "fair" that former President Trump was ordered to pay almost $355 million in damages and be barred from his business in New York by a judge Friday in a civil fraud case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James. During a segment of "MSNBC Reports" on Friday, Tur mentioned that in the 70-year existence of the legal rule Judge Arthur Engoron used on Trump, it was never used against someone who has yet to be proven of doing harm to any individual or entity with their practices.

Former President Donald Trump is outperforming President Joe Biden on a series of key issues, a recent ABC/IPSOS survey found. The survey asked respondents who they trust more — Trump or Biden — to handle a series of key issues in the country, including crime, immigration, the economy, guns, and more.Overall, it appears Americans have more confidence in Trump than Biden to handle some of the most pressing issues of the day. For instance, 43 percent trust Trump to handle the economy, while 31 percent said the same of Biden — a +12 advantage for Trump.

Is there a Margaret Thatcher in the house who can help stiffen Joe Biden’s spine? The late British prime minister, in a 1990 phone call during the early days of the first Gulf war, famously told a hesitant President George H. W. Bush that it “was no time to go wobbly.” As Thatcher recounts in her first memoir, “The Downing Street Years,” Bush appeared reluctant to act decisively following Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait. Although the United Nations Security Council approved a trade embargo of Iraq, it was left largely to the US and UK to enforce it. Fortunately, Bush adopted the Iron Lady’s resolve and soon unleashed Operation Desert Storm, leading to

More Americans believe former President Donald Trump will win the 2024 presidential election rather than would pick President Joe Biden, should that matchup officially materialize, the latest survey from the Economist/YouGov found. The survey asked respondents,” Regardless of who you prefer, who do you think would win the presidential election if Joe Biden were the Democratic candidate and Donald Trump were the Republican candidate?” While the two are tied with 44 percent each in a head-to-head matchup, more believe Trump would actually emerge as the victor.

Texas plans to construct a military base along the border with Mexico, the state's Republican governor announced on Friday, as his election-year tug-of-war with the White House over migration continues to broil. A wave of illegal border crossings in recent months has made migration a key talking point in the US presidential election campaign once again, with Republicans seeking to pin blame for the record-high numbers entirely on Democratic President Joe Biden. Governor Greg Abbott made the announcement of the new base in the flashpoint border town of Eagle Pass, where he has amassed national guard troops from Texas and other Republican-led states to erect razor wire and other barriers

Truckers to the rescue—again. Truckers bravely exposed some of the worst COVID shutdowns in the world when they parked their trucks in Ottowa to protest the iron-fisted approach used against citizens by the Justin Trudeau regime. Truckers in the US showed solidarity for their Canadian neighbors and helped block shipping between the US and Canada in Detroit, Michigan. Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who was being considered for Joe Biden’s VP, quickly threatened arrest for truckers who dared to block the Ambassador Bridge.

This story will make you miss the days when education was about actually learning skills and subjects that would help to equip children for adulthood. A Seattle high school issued a reading assignment featuring nine supposed traits of white supremacy. The assignment in question dives deep into progressive racial theory and is ostensibly intended to promote critical thinking about America’s societal structures. But a closer look reveals its actual aim: To further indoctrinate children into progressive ideology on race issues. Students in a Seattle English class were told that their love of reading and writing is a characteristic of “white supremacy,” in the latest Seattle Public Schools high school controversy.

One of the tricks of knowing when a leftist judge is pulling a fast one is if the decision is really, really long. (snip) Indeed, generally speaking, in my thirty-five years as an attorney, I’ve never seen an appellate court uphold damages so disproportionate to actual injuries suffered—and again, there were no injuries in this case. The fact that there were no injuries in itself means that the case, from ig to zack, denied Trump due process. I don’t see the judgment surviving an appeal, that’s for sure. (snip) And so, I think that this latest assault on Trump, rather than filling people with revulsion, will bring many around.

Writing in Aeon, professional provocateur Gavin Evans leads the band of God-slayers with his February 15 article, entitled “There Was No Jesus,” rehashing old arguments that Jesus was the invention of a group of unscrupulous hucksters who sought to create a religion around a myth of their own creation.

WASHINGTON - U.S. President Joe Biden has spent years implementing programs to fight climate change by advancing renewable energy and imposing tougher regulations on fossil fuels. Much of that work could go up in smoke if his likely rival Donald Trump beats him at the polls in November, according to Republican policy advisers. Former President Trump, who is on track to clinch the Republican nomination, would re-enter the White House with a raft of executive orders to expand oil, gas and coal development, they said. That would include ending a pause on new LNG export permits, scrapping electric vehicle mandates and once again withdrawing the United States

According to the Associated Press: Alexei Navalny, the fiercest foe of Russian President Vladimir Putin who crusaded against official corruption and staged massive anti-Kremlin protests, died in prison Friday, Russian authorities said. Dissidents said they didn't believe it because nothing the Russian government says is to be believed. But it doesn't help the Russian government any to report this, given the global condemnation
