Muslim and Christian Prayers ‘All Go To The Same Place,’ Claims AOC


Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that Christian and Muslim prayers "all go to the same place" during her speech at a Ramadan event held at the US Capitol on Monday.

 Ocasio-Cortez delivered the bizarre theological postulation at a Congress-held iftar — the meal that breaks the fast at sundown each day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

 Congress’s three Muslim members hosted the iftar at the U.S. Capitol on Monday, which was attended by 100 guests from various religious backgrounds, The Washington Post reports.

 During the Islamic event, Ocasio-Cortez, who has claimed to be Catholic and have Jewish heritage at various points in the past year, spoke about attending Friday prayers at mosques in her Bronx district, which includes a substantial Muslim population.

When [Rep.] Ilhan [Omar] prays, when I pray, when [Rep.] Rashida [Tlaib] prays, when Ayanna [Pressley] prays, when Jan Schakowsky prays, I believe those prayers all go to the same place — up,” she said.

 According to the Christian Post, House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer, who also attended the event, similarly mixed religion and politics, stating: “The Bible doesn’t tell me to love my neighbor if they’re Christian if they’re straight . . . The Bible tells me to love my neighbor.”

 Monday’s iftar was organized by the nonprofit Muslim Advocates in coordination with the offices of Omar, Tlaib — the first two Muslim women in Congress — and Rep. André Carson, D-Ind.

 The gathering to break that day’s Ramadan fast was the first iftar to be hosted by Congress’ own Muslim members.

 With the exception of 2017, the White House has hosted an iftar every year since 1996, when then-First Lady Hillary Clinton oversaw an event.

 The question of whether Christians and Muslims worship the same God has been the topic of heated debate in recent years, with numerous theologians and biblical scholars weighing in on the issue.

 In 2016, political science professor Larycia Hawkins parted ways with Wheaton College after she was placed on administrative leave for declaring Christians and Muslims worship the “same God.”

 Recently, Southern Baptist Convention President J.D. Greear said the Christian and Muslim ideas of God are irreconcilably different.

“Islam is a false way of salvation,” he emphasized.

“Islam presents salvation by works, and it outright denies several key things that Christianity teaches about God, like God being a Trinity and the personal nature of God and more.”

 Nabeel Qureshi, the late author of Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, previously stated that while Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God, “we all ought to stop demonizing those who disagree with us” given the complexity of the matter.

WTH -> Rosie O’Donnell Claims There Are ‘Over 100,000’ Concentration Camps In America

Actress and left-wing activist Rosie O’Donnell made the stunning claim that there are more than 100,000 concentration camps in states across the country, holding unaccompanied minors who illegally enter the U.S.

Appearing Monday on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live After Show,” Rosie O’Donnell was asked about the role she’s playing in Lights for Liberty, a rally being held July 12th to demand and end to what host Andy Cohan called “detention camps.”

“Yeah, the concentration camps, even though there’s lots of controversy about the word. But actually, legitimate scholars who study genocide say, yes, these are, in fact, the criteria for concentration camps, they meet them. There are over 100,000 camps in nearly every state,” O’Donnell said, failing to cite the scholars she mentioned. “There’s between 10,000 and 13,000 children, that could fill Radio City Music Hall twice. That’s how many children unaccompanied alone in these camps.”

O’Donnell, of course, was echoing fellow far-left figures like New York freshman Congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has spent the last several weeks comparing the oft-overcrowded Border Patrol facilities currently holding thousands of unaccompanied minors who illegally entered the country with adults to contraction camps like the ones that executed Jews during the Holocaust. Indeed, that comparison was roundly rejected on Monday by the United States Holocaust Museum.

“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary,” the organization said. “That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now.”

It is worth noting that the policy of separating children from adults and holding them in separate facilities was expanded by Barack Obama. It was his administration that separated thousands of children from their parents as a way to deter illegal immigration.

Rosie O’Donnell Backs Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 Bid — ‘She Knows How to Handle That Baby in the White House’

Rosie O’Donnell said she is supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

O’Donnell said, “Warren is my choice.”

She added, “We need a leader. We need a leader, and she’s been leading. Every time she opens her mouth, she gets more respect. Because she has plans for everything, she knows what she’s doing. And I think she knows how to handle that baby in the White House.”
