The new Republican chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee has given all members a Bible, with the recommendation they read it through in 2023.

“It’s an all-time best-seller. I read through it for the first time a few years ago, and it changed my life,” explained, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash.

“My encouragement is for everyone to read this book in their lifetime. So, why not now, in 2023?”

The congresswoman’s actions were reported by the Washington Stand.

She said, “In America and on this committee, there [are] many faiths, beliefs that are represented. We cherish religious freedom and religious tolerance.”

The report explained there are 52 members of the committee and they include a range of religious beliefs, including “members who espouse 12 flavors of Christian or Christian-adjacent beliefs, plus Judaism.”

The report said Pew Research counted “14 ‘unspecified’ Protestants, five Baptists, five Methodists, four Lutherans, three Presbyterians, one Episcopalian, and one nondenominational Protestant” among committee members.

Additionally, there are 14 Catholics and two Orthodox members, one Adventist, one Restorationist, one Mormon, and two Jewish members.

McMorris Rodgers explained, “This Bible is structured to be 15 minutes a day, a little Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs.”

The report noted she also gave each member a coffee mug and encouraged them to get coffee with a member of the other political party.

“As Christians, we know that Scripture is not merely a good source for ethics or morality but is the source of all true knowledge and wisdom. It contains the very words of God,” David Closson, director of Family Research Council’s Center for Biblical Worldview, told The Washington Stand. “Through Scripture, we learn God’s wondrous plan of salvation. We also learn guidance for everyday life including government, politics, and living together in community.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: What is behind the current war against America’s children? Why are so many adults killing their unborn children right up to the moment of birth, or even after? Why are millions of kids sexualized virtually from birth, and injected with an experimental “vaccine” proven to be both ineffective and dangerous, then as toddlers transported to events glorifying mentally ill, demonically possessed men dressed as women?

Why are America’s children systematically sexualized at school, and by transgender recruiters on social media platforms like TikTok, seducing many into “identifying” as the opposite gender, or a brand-new imaginary gender, then encouraged to take powerful drugs and hormones and have their healthy breasts amputated or undergo chemical or surgical castration?

Why are our children simultaneously indoctrinated with toxic Marxist ideologies like “critical race theory” intended to condition them to hate and reject their own country, parents, faith, race, gender and themselves? Why are they simultaneously being frightened of the future by being fed lurid, terrifying – and groundless – apocalyptic tales of the imminent destruction of the world due to global warming?

No wonder youth suicides have skyrocketed, as have depression, anxiety, addiction and drug overdoses. Indeed, fentanyl, the No. 1 cause of death of younger Americans 18 to 45, destroys multitudes of children annually.

Make no mistake: The harm being done to America’s children in this multi-front war is not accidental: Children are the primary target.

WHY? How can all this be happening in the greatest nation on earth? Who and what is behind it? And HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
