“It is incredible,” said Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, “but not surprising, that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of their first acts in the majority.” Rep. Cheney noted that the Democratic Party has quickly become the "party of Karl Marx," co-author of the Communist Manifesto.
The Natural Resources committee, headed by Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.), is expected to vote on the new oath later in the week. If passed, all changes would be effective immediately.
While four monosyllabic words might not seem like a big deal, the removal of any acknowledgment of God in relation to objective truth, especially when it comes to testimony before such a powerful body as Congress, seems an ominous harbinger for the American republic.
