Democrat ridiculed for ending Congressional prayer with “amen and awoman”

In a misguided attempt to be gender-neutral, Missouri congressman Emanuel Cleaver apparently didn’t realize “amen” is a Latin word for “so be it.”

By LGBTQ Nation, January 4, 2021

In a misguided attempt to be gender-neutral, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) ended the congressional prayer in an unusual way. Instead of closing with the perfunctory “amen,” Cleaver, a Methodist minister, chose “amen and awoman.”

“Amen” is a Latin word that means “so be it.” It has no gender in Latin.

A committee had previously voted to “honor all gender identities” by removing gendered language from House business and proposed legislation. Most of the changes would be minor and would only catch the chamber up with modern word usage. “Congressman” or “Congresswoman,” for example, could be easily replaced with “member of Congress” or “congress member.”

But Cleaver’s attempt to include everyone went a little too far. While he managed to awkwardly shoehorn references to other religions into his prayer by beseeching “in the name of the monotheistic God, Brahma, and ‘god’ known by many names by many different faiths,” his closing has the GOP up in arms and the internet laughing.

“Amen. And awoman.”

Cleaver served as the senior pastor at St. James United Methodist Church for 37 years. He is serving his seventh term as a member of congress.

A bill to change the language of city codes in Washington DC to gender-neutral language has been introduced in Washington D.C. and is awaiting a vote by the city council. The Gendered Terms Modernization Amendment Act of 2020 would change references to “he” or “she” in city laws to “the individual” or “they.”
