They should go to JAIL for this…
The Democrats have taken a huge step on their conquest to root God out of the public square in the name of secularism by removing “so help me God” from the U.S. House of Representatives oath witnesses must take when testifying before several of the congressional committees, which all are currently under Democratic control.
The changes to the oaths have been slowly implemented ever since House Democrats announced the new policy, it immediately faced backlash.
Chairman Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) claimed the removal of God from the oaths was a simple “mistake.” Despite that, the Democrats eventually went on to push God out of the oaths when Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TX), chair of the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, specifically omitted “so help me God” when swearing witnesses in at a hearing. When Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) tried to correct the oath, Cohen publicly slandered him.
Democrats have made “so help me God” a forgotten and buried tradition in the U.S. House, with Rep. Steve Cohen stating he finds the phrase inappropriate for Congress.
“I think God belongs in religious institutions: in temple, in church, in cathedral, in mosque — but not in Congress,” said Cohen. “And God doesn’t want to be used.”
Republicans have been fighting back. Rep. Mike Johnson argued that “so help me God” implies someone who bears false witness is subjected to a higher judge.
“The intention behind [‘so help me God’] was to express the idea that the truth of what was being said was important not just in the moment, but would go into eternity, and someone was watching and would ultimately be our judge,” said Johnson. “Some would call that mere symbolism, but to many of our founders, it was deeper than that.”
Though Democrats have fought vigorously to remove religion from the public square, the party’s brazen hatred for God being involved in politics erupted at the 2012 DNC when delegates voted by a large margin to remove God from the party platform.
