  • She clearly made the prayer political. Two examples: "God forgive us. Jesus. We've lost sight of you. We've forgotten you, God. [crying] In our country, and we're asking you to forgive us, Jesus. That your promise and your word, that if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek your faith, and turn from their wicked ways, that you'll heal our land. Jesus, you're our only hope." "President Trump. Thank you that he stands beside Israel unequivocally, Lord. Thank you that Jesus, that we're blessed because we stand by Israel..." The issues I take are 1. the first quote is clearly a jab at political leaders who are non-Christian, and 2. the second quote is clearly a jab at Rep. Omar with respect to her assertion that some US politicians have a greater allegiance to Israel than to the USA itself.

      Then don't allow any religious expression, right? Don't allow the muslim cleric to speak either, right?

      Didja read my answer? The issue I have is not with the fact that there was a prayer, it is with what was *publicly* said during the prayer.
  • Obvious bias. Why invite public prayer at all? Everyone can say their own private prayer individually and never offend anyone. It was a setup.

      Agreed. This is what society has become now. Allow everyone, or no one.
  • she shouldnt be getting in trouble for that
