The U.S. Congress was outraged by the feminine form of the word "amen

At one of the sessions of the U.S. Congress a Democratic Party representative used a feminine form of the word “amen. This was posted on Twitter by Republican Guy Reshenthale.

At the first session of Congress in the new year, Democrat Emanuel Cleaver said a prayer that ended with the words “amen and a-woman,” which literally means “amen and a-woman.” As the Daily Mail specifies, the congressman may have mistaken the word amen for the combination “a-woman.”

“The opening prayer at the 117th Congress ended with the words amen and a-woman. Amen is a Latin word that means “so be it.” This word has no genus. Unfortunately, facts don’t matter to progressives [Democrats]. Unbelievable,” Reshenthaler wrote. He also posted a video of Cleaver saying a prayer.

The British tabloid notes that the prayer followed a proposal by a committee to change the rules for families and eliminate the gender-specific words “mother” and “father.” According to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, such changes would make the lower chamber of Congress “the most inclusive in history” for transgender and non-binary people.
