Reader blames Antifa for attacks on Capitol

To the Editor:
Sadly I read on the Christian website www.nowtheendbegins.com that Democrat Congressman Emanuel Cleaver who is an ordained United Methodist minister opened the first session of the 117th Congress by praying in the name of Hindu god Brahma and placed Congress under a curse. Emanuel closed with the word “amen and awomen” in an apparent attempt to render the word fair to both genders. Normally, pastors end their prayers by saying “amen,” a Hebrew word that means “so be it, “it is so” or “it is true.” The word “amen” has nothing to do with gender. The Bible says in Proverbs and other places that some prayers are an abomination. This prayer and “hers?”was an abomination because we are to only pray in the name above all names the name of Jesus. I wonder does the pastor refuse to sing “hymns” but sings “hymns and hers?”
Geoffrey Grider at www.nowtheendbegins.com said many who went into the U.S. Capitol building on January 6 had Communist tattoos and looked like Antifa pretending to be Trump supporters. Antifa is communist who are anti-Trump and anti-police.
It shouldn’t be that easy for unarmed people to overtake a government building unless they have inside help and it’s a set up. Nothing was accomplished that benefited Trump. Because of the attack on the Capitol the Senators said they weren’t going to discuss the election fraud or challenge the election. So the attack was timed perfectly to help Biden. Antifa leaders have told their people for years to disguise themselves as Trump supporters or even police if it helps their Communist movement. Sadly Antifa friended and got some Trump supporters (they call useful idiots) to follow them in storming Congress and trespassing and vandalizing. I agree with Grider that trespassing and vandalizing in the Capitol on January 6 by Trump supporters and those pretending to be Trump supporters was a crime and was wrong but was less a crime than what happened for 6 months by Black Lives Matters (BLM) and Antifa because they killed over a dozen people and did billions of dollars in damages. Trump supporters or Antifa killed one at the Capitol. Those that killed the one should be charged with murder.
Federal buildings were burned and people killed in riots in Democrat led cities all summer that Biden and the major media called peaceful protests. Democrats even bailed the rioters out. Biden is being unfair and a hypocrite to call Trump supporters ‘Domestic Terrorists’ for a one-day riot while defending 6 months of burning, looting and murders from BLM and Antifa rioters. Sadly, Biden will probably launch attacks on patriots and persecute Christians calling them ‘domestic terrorists.’ Communist in the Democrat party are calling for silencing dissent and censorship. Biden wrongly claimed that the Trump rioters who stormed the Capitol would have been treated “very differently” had they been protesters associated with Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. BLM and Antifa was bailed out or not charged by the D.A. and freed when they got arrested over the last six months while Trump supporters will probably not be bailed out and have been charged. Anti-Trump, BLM activist John Sullivan joined the mob and was inside the U.S. capitol pretending to be a Trump supporter. This shows not all the rioters inside the U. S. Capitol were Trump supporters as some in the media claim.
I have warned people that it is dangerous to go to protest and certainly don’t take your children. To Trump’s credit he conceded and asked people to be peaceful and condemned the rioters. The Bible says to live at peace as much as it is up to you. I proudly supported Trump in letters to the editor more than anyone. I don’t regret supporting Trump. Although not as evil and wicked as Biden, Trump isn’t our savior. Christians do mourn the election results as Proverbs 29:2 says, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked rule, the people mourn.” Our hope is rooted only in Jesus, not politics or America. The Bible says because Christians belong to Jesus they have heavenly citizenship. “For our citizenship is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior the Lord Jesus Christ. Some want their state to secede from the U.S. because Trump didn’t win. Christians will soon do something far better. Christians will ascend from the earth when Jesus says “come up here!” We can all say, “come quickly Lord Jesus!”
