A video is circulating on the internet showing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) speaking at a Catholic church, reading from the Quran and praising Allah.
The exact date of the event is unclear, although it appears to be around Christmas last year.
The event reportedly took place at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Washington, D.C. (although I am not able to 100 percent confirm this) — and apparently was part of an event the host called “Multi-Prayer Service.”
The church is about two blocks from the Capitol.
Many members of Congress attend when they’re in town.
The church is well-known for being very liberal.
