Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), a Methodist minister, gives the opening invocation:
The prayer to open the 117th Congress ended with "amen and a-women."
Amen is Latin for "so be it."
It's not a gendered word.
Unfortunately, facts are irrelevant to progressives. Unbelievable. pic.twitter.com/FvZ0lLMDDr

As I’ve been pointing out for years, American culture is getting more childish.
How long until Congressional prayers end “Amxn,” which will make many people feel more sophisticated and grown-up?
Not quite getting it, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-AL) would end his prayers: “A Mexican.”
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) would insist that all prayers in the House of Representatives end “A Black women.”
