Muslim Lawmaker Says Prayer in Name of Jesus is Islamophobic

March 26, 2019   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: ,

Pennsylvania’s first female Muslim lawmaker in the General Assembly accused a Republican colleague of Islamophobia after she opened a legislative session with a prayer that invoked the name of Jesus Christ.

“Jesus, you are our only hope,” Rep. Stephanie Borowicz prayed. “At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus, that you are Lord.”

Movita Johnson-Harrell, who was sworn into office after the prayer, said the prayer was “highly offensive to me, my guests, and other members of the House.”

    4.”we are a Christian nation”
    5.”WE ARE A CHRISTIAN NATION..”
    This expression does not exist in the NT.
    Peter speaks only of a “holy nation” (1 Peter 2 v9)
    I do not believe that a nation in the world is “holy”
    if the nation or even “a church” does not walk in holiness.
    So sanctify the nation by our holiness as the faithful believer married to the unbeliever and their children (1 Cor.7 v12-15) May the Lord help us.

    2 Tim 2:25 ……, if God perhaps may sometime give them repentance to acknowledgment of [the] truth,

  2. Stand for nothing, fall for anything. God is the truth and light. What's is occurring was predicted. Stand with God, teach others the truth and you will not be blindsighted by these things.

  3. Jesus is a living Name with Power. That’s why their afraid because the devil is and so his followers in Congress and others. Followers follow their masters and in this case ending with flaming vengeance.

  4. And yet, when the name of Allah, Muhammad or he Koran is read there is great jubilee. Political correctness and hypocrisy beyond total. Muslims should see thru this and continue to mistrust liberal American politicians. In the least it is sickening: “congress shall make no law respecting {one} religion nor prohibit the free exercise thereof”. ( US Constitution 1st Amendment, why do you think they made that amendment?)). US laws and lawmakers hinder and degrade Christianity and yet favor another religion. Research founding fathers and documents, don’t listen to political puppets afraid of backlash and losing votes. Jelly fish with no backbone violating American rights and by extension causing immeasurable embarrassment.

  5. She stood against the Forces of Darkness in High Places…A Woman of God…Our Founders would have been Proud of her then & Now!…I know I am! Jesus Is…True Americans Are!

  6. I PRAISE God that our country was FOUNDED on GODLY principles! I PRAISE THE LORD for this young lady, Rep. Stephanie Borowicz, who was FILLED with God’s Spirit to lead with SUCH a SINCERE prayer to THE GOD, our Creator! I PRAY that OTHER Christians will STAND UP for their beliefs in God & NOT allow ANYONE to cower them down!! I PRAY for ALL who are offended by this prayer, that they will ACCEPT JESUS as their Lord & Saviour! IF NOT, then I PRAY they will LEAVE our country& GO to a country that upholds their beliefs!

  7. Christophobia is everywhere. Yet, Christians never complained of such despite the arrogance of anyone who attacks our Lord Jesus. The person sworn to office.who was offended must understand that her view is totally against the constitution of this country built in Biblical.Principles-totally of Christ.

    Keep praying as we are a Christian nation, never relent to the order of the confused by foreigners that hate us! For myself it is more offensive to have a Muslim think they should even speak against our nation. God’s word says HE will confound the tongue of the wicked – those that blasphemy him! Honor our Nation or go back to their country and run for office as a Muslim.

  9. WE ARE A CHRISTIAN NATION..AND THEY ARE VISITORS HERE IN OUR LAND.. THEY DISRESPECT OUR BELIEFS AND WAY OF LIFE AND HAVE NO RIGHT TO SAY IT IS OFFENSIVE TO THEM. THEY HAVE THE FREEDOM TO LEAVE ..THANK GOD WE DO NOT BEHEAD THEM LIKE SOME DO IN THEIR PART OF THE WORLD IF THEY DO NOT WORSHP LIKE THEM. THAT IS WORST THAN OFFENSIVE. THAT IS A SIN AND CRIME TO COMMIT MURDER AGAINST OUR CREATOR’S CHILDREN. WE MUST NOT COWER DOWN TO THEM FOR WHAT OUR FOREFATHERS PAID THE PRICE TO HAVE SUCH FREEDOM IN OUR NATION AND WORSHP GOD, OUR CREATOR. NOT AN IDOL LIKE THEY DO. THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, OUR CREATOR. WE MUST NOT ALLOW ANY OUTSIDER INVADE OUR NATION AND DEMAND WE BOW DOWN TO THEIR WAY OF WORSHIP OR WAY OF LIFE. IF THEY DON’T LIKE IT HAVE THEM LEAVE AND GO BACK TO THEIR OWN NATIONS WHERE THEY CAN BOW DOWN TO THEIR IDOLS.

  10. Nothing ‘phobic’ about it.
    Actually, it is their own phobia that others actually have faith in the only God. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Israel, the GREAT I AM, El Shaddai.

    They can finger point and threat all they want, but it will never stop the truth, the only truth, the way, the truth and the life; Yeshua Mashiach, Jesus Christ through Whom is the ONLY way to the Father.

    Satan shutters because he knows each day he is one more day closer to the Lake of Fire.

  11. Amen Madam. We do not care if the Muslim individuals are offended. Evil is always offended by the name, presence, power of God…and so that goes here. Cry as much as you want to, but this nation was founded on our faith in the one God, YHVH, in the name of His son, our savior Yeshua/Jesus the Christ, our savior, the one who forgive even those who defame His name should they repent. If our God offends you, LEAVE. there are numerous nations that you will fit right in to with your blasphemy and hatred. Jesus taught us to pray for you, our enemies, and so I will…May God have mercy on your hate filled souls.

  12. Well Motiva get used to it, this is what our country was built upon and most all believe in.Also its true if you think not….judgement days coming and you will bow….guaranteed!!!

  13. robert burwell

    This country was founded under our God,….not Allah. Don’t come here trying to change that, claiming you are offended and calling us ‘phobics’. Sounds like you are Christian Phobic. If YOU are in charge, you would be ‘killing’ us in the name of your god. Ours is a God who teaches peace , love and forgiveness !

  14. Gina Ruiz

    You came to this country so you need to a accept what we stand for and what we believe in not the other way around. You can’t do that and you are affended by our God then go back to your own country where woman have no rights and have to cover their faces and men beat you for even speaking out !

  15. It is dissapointing to see not one person in here stand up and say that separation of church and state is important. This country was founded on religious freedoms, not for just Christians, but for all religions, including Muslim, Judaism, Hindu etc. It’s not the fact that she wants to pray to Jesus, but the fact that she did it in front of a governmental body that should believe in separation of church and state. God is not actually mentioned in the Constitution! I know that not one person in here would have stood by as a Muslim prayed and Islamic prayer to Allah in the same scenario and then claimed it was ok because of free speech. The vast polarization caused by religious double standards in this country is disturbing, and I’m saying all this as a Pentecostal person.

    I, and many of my fellow citizens of all ethnicities and with varying attitudes to God and religion, quietly and openly wept at the appalling actions of another human massacring others because of their religious and cultural differences. In our country and yours we are allowed to be different. However unless these differences are accepted but instead merely tolerated or indeed attacked we are at risk of returning Western Civilization to the religious wars of 1000 years ago. An evil era.

  17. There are many airplanes and airports that will help you out of this country. Take your passport and leave it in any country you choose. You are NOT welcome here. Our Jesus died and rose again after 3 days. When will muhammed be raised? When he bows down to the One and Only!!!

  18. Anthony

    Praise Jesus Christ, Thankyou for strong people who stand and praise your holy name,your the only one worthy of praise, you gave your life for our sins, when it should have been us on the cross, you took our place, I’ll praise and give thanks to you always, almighty father God I Thankyou, Amen

  19. Cheryl Walters

    Praise your Name Jesus for the holy holdness you gave this woman, your daughter, to prayer these beautiful words over this meeting, our government officials, America and Israel. I don’t give a care if it offended the Muslims! Hear me now…this country was not founded on false religions & doctrines but on the Word of God and its teachings. We need to root out the evil ones in our government & our America who are here to do satan’s work and that is to kill us, the infidels, and take over the world for a 1 world government and religion! In Jesus Name, I declare this will not happen! God, you destroy this evil. Thank you, Lord.

  20. Nimal Perera

    Praise God. We praise and thank God for His servant who did this so powerful and awesome prayer at the PA General Assembly. It will really be blessed as they give first place to Lord our God. We are delighted to see this video.

  21. Shantelle S

    I’m so glad she was not afraid of offending anyone and was not ashamed to speak the name of Jesus. There is too much fear of offense already displayed in this country. If the Muslim woman was offended, so what. She chose to run for that office with the specific intention of changing the laws on which this country was built. And those laws were based on Christian principles.

  22. How would you have prayed to your god Motiva?
    How would you have us pray to our Lord Jesus?
    Biblical Holiness is only offensive to those that are against such things.

  23. What happened to free speech? Is it only free if you agree with whoever thinks they are the most important person? An egomaniac with an inferiority complex? Everyone else can talk about their gods But let a Christian talk about the true God and they are condemned. This is an adult woman living in the united states of America representing Americans and acting like my 3 year old grandchild throwing a temper tantrum! God forgive her!

  24. Robert Hardy Trickey

    Those making the charge of “Islamophobic” do not even understand the meaning of that term which would be translated ‘fearing Islam’. Quite obviously, this lady does not fear Islam, nor the threats of the Islamists, but she is operating and speaking in the strength and the courage of the Lord of Lords, the King of Kings, the name above all names. HalleluYah.

  25. Sandra Johnson

    I bet they did find that offensive, it goes against every thing they believe in. They want to rule the world and their mission is to convert the world to Islam by any means necessary. Unfortunately for Christians they have found a way. They have come into America and used our laws to protect us, against us. Used greed of elected officials against us. The worst part is we elected officials who fund them to come here, give them an education, housing, and other benefits that most tax payers never could dream of being able to provide for their own children. Said elected officials could care less about Christians. We are just a means to an end. Ever wonder why president Trump is so hated? It’s because he believes in Jesus and he is trying to stop the democrats from transforming America into a 3rd world country.

  26. Praise God almighty for giving us the Lord of lords and King of kings Christ Jesus that we are bless with the wisdom knowledge and understanding of all creation to govern to bless to heal and proclaim the victory of Christ Jesus

  27. Patricia Gustafson

    This is America if your offended by the name of JESUS to bad again this is America go to Islam and worship there. It’s the Bible and Jesus in America I’m not offended.

  28. John Black

    JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY SON OF GOD CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE – THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE – THERE IS NO OTHER NAME THAT SAVES! EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO THE ONE TRUE LORD JESUS – amen

  29. Bob Lynn

    Get over it….stand down, sit down. If and when you are invited to pray the opening you may pray to your Allah, the moon god and his prophet mohammed. Meanwhile, her peayer to Jesus, Lord of all, King of Kings stands.

  30. Ray Berrian

    If this woman is a Muslim, she is trying to deceive our American citizens. Muslims would not utter a prayer like she just uttered before her Allah nor Mohammad.

    Deceit is in her soul; does she have you believing in her as an open person toward our God, the Lord Jesus Christ.

  31. I believe that Jesus Christ is the true Messiah It is time we heard more prayers like this before the house Thank you for your courage to stand for what you believe in. As for Movita johnson-harrell. I don’t care if u or your friends were offended. This is still America. And this country is Christian not Muslems. How you ever got elected is beyond me. If a Christian prayer upsets u perhaps u should resign from office

  32. Margaret H

    Because she became offended when the name of JESUS was spoke I would say she suffers from Jesusphobia not the other way around. Truth is…JESUS is our only hope…

  33. This is what the Word of God YHWH SABAOTH aka Jesus Christ Righteousness

    I AM the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE no one comes to the FATHER but by ME

    John 14;6

    There is no other NAME given amongst men where by we must be SAVED but the NAME of JESUS

    In the Beginning was the WORD(logo’s) and the WORD(logo’s) was GOD(logo’s) All things were Created by him, with out HIM everything’s that was made will not be in existence
    4 In HIM was LIFE the LIGHT of Mankind

    That’s who and He was and is
    John 1;1-4

    Awake o thou that Sleepeth Arise from the DEAD and CHRIST shall give thee LIGHT

    Ephesians 5;14

    So to you Islamists Laywer Makers Your god Lucifer aka Allah aka Satan was the Rebels Angel that was casts down from heaven for Rebellion against the CREATOR YHWH SABAOTH SIDKENU aka JESUS CHRIST RIGHTEOUSNESS

    If you don’t like it Go out side and say your Islamists calls

  34. Stephen O'Dea

    Shall I enter a garden and be offended by the flowers?
    Make no mistake, when acquiring a garden, the one who is offended by flowers will turn it into a garbage heap! Do not let power fall into the lap of such as these, lest we all perish as the flowers!

      This is a Christian Nation. If by some miracle we were allowed to be in Governmental offices in an Islamic Nation, which we know would never happen, we would have to pray to whom ever they wanted to pray to. Go back to where you came from if you want to suppress freedom of religion. Obama said we were no longer a Christian Nation because he along with others were trying to make us a Muslim Nation. It’s getting very tiring watching this Nation of people being manipulated by foreigners who supposedly want to come here for a better life, but want to change us into where they came from. If you want that then don’t come here.

    • It’s time to beat libs at their own game.

      Christophobia – fear, dislike and hatred of Christianity, Christians and things Christian.

      Use it frequently and everytime you can accuse someone of it. They are afraid of all phobias. Would that be phobaphobia?

      There may be those of you who may not agree with my reply. What is I understand the purpose of an opening prayer is in this case to yes invoke the name of the Lord Jesus for his Blessing and for his grace. But if you listen to her prayer it was not a prayer, it was an exhortation of the Gospel. But the platform was not we given to her for that She took Liberty that she was not given to Proclaim gospel. I think every opportunity you have should be used I agree with that. But it is very apparent clear to me that she transgressed went beyond what she was asked of her. I’m not surprised that the Muslim lady accused her of islamophobia. As far as the gospel is concerned it was a opportunity to declare Jesus is Lord. Indeed he is, my point being it was not a prayer.
