CHRISTIAN RIGHT INTERRUPT HINDU CHAPLIN IN THE SENATE

Today was a historic first for religion in America's civic life: For the very first time, a Hindu delivered the morning invocation in the Senate chamber — only to find the ceremony disrupted by three Christian right activists.

The three protesters, who all belong to the Christian Right anti-abortion group Operation Save America, and who apparently traveled to Washington all the way from North Carolina, interrupted by loudly asking for God's forgiveness for allowing the false prayer of a Hindu in the Senate chamber.

"Lord Jesus, forgive us father for allowing a prayer of the wicked, which is an abomination in your sight," the first protester began.

"This is an abomination," he continued. "We shall have no other gods before You."

That is shameful. Yet another wild disgrace committed by the members of our country.

That darn office of the Senate Chaplain has historically run christians through there, but they never excluded anybody.

So, there should not have been any problem with the Hindu religious figures presence.

What gets me is the lack of security. Damn Timothy McVeigh could have walked through there. :(
