TL;DR

The first Muslim representative elected to the Pennsylvania legislature is demanding an apology from another member who began their session with a prayer to Jesus Christ calling it highly offensive. Movita Johnson Harrell said that she and her family were greatly offended at the prayer that had overt worship of Jesus Christ. John Harrell is quoted as calling the prayer and other members of the House. The Pennsylvania state Democratic party called the prayer an Islamophobic message and Pennsylvania House Democratic Party Whip Jordan Harris excoriated Borowicz in a scathing statement. Contrary to his statement Borowicz prayer consisted of theological statements that have been accepted and proclaimed by Christians for thousands of years. Stephanie Borowiczs prayer may have been inappropriate in a setting in which not everyone present was Christian. It blatantly represented the Islamophobia that exists among some leaders leaders that are supposed to represent the people Johnson Harrell said in a statement published by the Pennsylvania Capital Star. Lord thank you that he stands beside Israel unequivocally Lord. I claim all these things in the powerful at the name of Jesus every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that you Jesus are lord. A Republican state congresswoman has prompted complaints after launching into a prayer thanking Donald Trump and calling on people to bow to Jesus shortly before Pennsylvanias first black Muslim congresswoman was sworn in
