Christian activists briefly disrupted a Hindu invocation in the U.S Senate on Thursday, marring a historic first for the chamber and showing that fundamentalism is present and shouting in the U.S too.

Invited by the Senate to offer Hindu prayers in place of the usual Christian invocation, Rajan Zed, a Hindu priest from Reno, Nevada, had just stepped up to the podium for the landmark occasion when three protesters, said to belong to the Christian Right anti-abortion group Operation Save America, interrupted him by loudly asking for God's forgiveness for allowing the ''false prayer'' of a Hindu in the Senate chamber.



I think they should be true to their values, rise up, scream that there is a rag wearing infidel in their midst, and have the Bundy militia drag the poor guy off the stage at gunpoint.
After all, isn't he attacking their free-dumb? tinfoilhat

Fundamentalism is a MENTAL ILLNESS.

Gromit, I look like Gromit. I was going to link an example of me calling the Wingnuts out, but the entire 8:03 05/07/2014 a.m. Thread is missing. That's not like Greta to exhibit censorship. But, it did get wild and wooly this morning before work.
