“Amen” translates to “so be it.”

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter.

The opening prayer just ended with “ amen and a woman”. It has absolutely nothing to do with gender. It is Latin for so be it. This is Political Correctness gone way off the rails. pic.twitter.com/xzlgXECHRO

“Amen is Latin for “so be it.”
It’s not a gendered word.
Unfortunately, facts are irrelevant to progressives. Unbelievable.”
