US House of Representatives Strike God From Oath

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

Update: Due to pressure from some Republicans and many Christians, Nancy Pelosi's Democratic Party has decided to allow God to remain in the oath...for now.

While New York's Governor Cuomo wages war on unborn children made in the image and likeness of God---Nancy Pelosi's US House of Representatives are striking God from the oath witnesses take before giving testimony.

Be informed.

Striking God politically.


Nancy Pelosi's Democrat-controlled US House of Representatives is moving this week to eliminate the reference to God from the oath administered to witnesses testifying before the panel, as part of a new rules package expected to be approved this week.

The draft shows that the House Committee on Natural Resources would ask witnesses to recite the following:
"Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?"

The draft also removes the phrase "his or her" throughout the document.

And it revises the document to remove the use of the word "chairman," to be replaced by the word "chair."

Interestingly, the document also expands the committee's authority over natural gas in Alaska and fossil-fuel resources---which are considered by many of us to be part of God's Creation.

Everyone expects the revision to be approved. It will take effect immediately.

This strike at "God" is not the first.


Fox says:
"The proposed change was not the first time Democrats have sought to strike references to God in official party documents. In 2012, the floor of the Democratic National Convention erupted over a sudden move to restore to the platform a reference to God and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital---after heavy criticism from Republicans for initially omitting them."

A large and loud group shouted, "No," as the convention chairman called for a vote. In fact he had to call for several votes before he could declare the "ayes" have it.

Many in the crowd booed following the declaration.

It's pretty safe to say, the Democratic Party is not fond of God.

Republican reaction.


Republican leaders reacted saying it is a further sign of the Democratic Party's leftward shift."

House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney said, "It's incredible, but not surprising that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of their first acts in the majority."

Cheney said, "They really have become the party of Karl Marx."

So true. On so many levels. The mark of Marx is all over the Democratic Party, particularly the incoming far left progressive freshman class of Democratic public servants, including Muslims Michigan Rep, Rashida Tlaib and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar.

Example: Omar has written, "Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel."

Tlaib was engaged in anti-Semitic comments earlier this month by suggesting Republican politicians were truly loyal to Israel, not the United States.

Striking God morally.


Earlier this week I wrote about the unbelievable action taken by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for his recent expansion of abortion. In New York abortion is now available on demand until a second before birth.

Many of us were stunned by his willingness to sign the far Left immoral bill into law, then celebrate by lighting buildings and bridges, including the World Trade Center building, in pink.

Franklin Graham was one of many who were stunned by this attack on unborn children made in the image and likeness of God.


Franklin is urging Cardinal Timothy Dolan to take a strong moral stand against Cuomo. Some are calling for his church to excommunicate him.

One bishop says, "This vote is so hideous and vile that it warrants the act"---referring to excommunication.

Dolan says he doesn't want to excommunicate Cuomo, it would just provide "ammunition" for the abortion lobby.

Franklin called Dolan out with this on social media:

"The Catholic Church is discussing as to whether Gov. Cuomo should be excommunicated from the church for signing the state's new abortion bill. This law allows for the murder of unborn children up until the day of their birth. I call on my friend Cardinal Dolan to take a moral stand. Whether it moves the governor's calloused heart or not, it will have a great impact on not only the church in New York, but on the church worldwide. It's about standing for right over wrong, good over evil."

It's sad to see people who profess to be Christians---Gov. Cuomo, Nancy Pelosi, and a long line of other politicians and even religious leaders, who affirm these kinds of anti-God actions.


God's Response.


In Romans chapter 1, God responds to the insanity of removing Him from human experience.

Verse 18: "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the Truth...continuing the Word of the Lord explains that we are "without excuse" because He has revealed Himself to all mankind" through Creation.
Verse 21: "Because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened."
Verse 22: "Professing to be wise, they became fools."

As Tucked Carlson appropriately put it in his new book, "We are sailing with a ship of fools."

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Faithful. Be Prayerful.

Pray for the people of New York to turn to The LORD for deliverence and salvation from this evil man. Pray for them to turn to Him for salvation and peace. Cindy Zapotocky, Spokane

  2. It has always been true that not everyone believes in God's existence. In today’s destructive times Atheism is given the stature under the law as a "religion".

    Why should those who do not believe in God feel threatened taking an oath to someone who does not exist? Is it only a problem for them because they want the Government to make law restricting the freedom of those who "do" believe in God?

    What is the truth about the Constitutional restrictions of mentioning “God”?
    Amendment I. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech,..” The “wall of separation” language is not there! That language was lifted from a letter Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury Baptists Association to assure them the Federal Government would never use the law to “anoint” one Christian denomination over another…which was their fear. Clearly, the 1st Amendment was designed to codify this assurance, while the mention of and reverence for the Judeo-Christian “God” is replete throughout the founding documents and carved in stone throughout Americas Capital Buildings and monuments.

    If mentioning “God” in Federal processes, documents, and buildings is a violation, then so would be an action to codify the religion of Atheism by attempting to remove the references to “God” which are an integral part of America’s foundation.

    The destruction moral character and the Christian faith in America are ongoing objectives of Secular Progressive Leftism, increasingly associated with “evil”.

    When the influence and impact of evil is allowed to advance even a small amount it increases the intensity of its efforts. America has allowed evil to overcome basic moral standards. Today evil has become good and good has become evil. The “new” Democrat party (read Secular Socialist Party) darlings are going for America’s throat.

    The Governor of New Your proudly announced the success of his new initiative to make the murder of an unborn child “legal” up to and including the initial phases of the birth process. Now we see evil has finally succeeded in generating barbaric madness. The next step from an “immoral” culture is one that “worships immorality”. The next step after that is one that “punishes” those who object to rampant immorality”. The next step is arrogant “Barbarism”, clearly demonstrated by codifying the murder of babies immediately before or as they are born.

    Truth is a lonely warrior…

    Pray fervently during each and every day for our Lord’s Holy Spirit to come against the deception and madness with clarity and truth. Pray fervently every hour that Christians across America will embrace the courage to stand boldly in public verbally identifying evil for what it is, and condemning it as Barbaric.

    Recently a convicted male criminal who “identifies” as a woman was allowed to be placed into the prisons “female” population. After committing two rapes, a Lesbian protagonist for the victims referred to “him” as “he” and she was castigated far more by the media and democrat operatives for using a male pronoun than was the “man” for using gender confusion to allow him to commit rapes at his pleasure.

    “Barbarism” is where America has been taken by the Secular Left Progressive (read Socialist) operatives. “Evil prospers when good men witness its advance and do nothing”.

    We cannot blame God for what is happening to America…we have been “graced” with the conviction of the Holy Spirit and the Courage of Christ. The early Christians were willing to give their lives in open support for God’s dominion Jesus in a culture not unlike today’s America. Are today’s Christians willing to face insults, humiliation, and even violence against them?

    Or is that too much to expect from the “true believers”?

    Truth is a lonely warrior..

  3. I have heard many speculate what the 2016 election of President Donald Trump and the subsequent elections in 2018 signified. Many have raised questions of whether or not we are more conservative or more liberal now? Or about socialism or racism or are we a country divided? I say yes to the last. Now more than ever before in our history there is a clear red line in the sand across this nation..on one side for God; on the other side against God. Political discourse is fractured along so many different lines but the line of opposition of those who are against our Lord Jesus is cut deeper than ever before. Pray for those in opposition to Jesus so they might come over to Him before the divide is too great.
