Christians Behaving Badly
Posted by nytexan on July 12, 2007
Today in the U.S. Senate, Christians once again show their teachings or lack thereof.
- A Hindu clergyman made history Thursday by offering the U.S. Senate’s morning prayer, but only after police officers removed three shouting protesters from the visitors’ gallery.
- Rajan Zed, director of interfaith relations at a Hindu temple, gave the brief prayer that opens each day’s Senate session. As he stood at the chamber’s podium in a bright orange and burgundy robe, two women and a man began shouting “this is an abomination” and other complaints from the gallery.
- Police officers quickly arrested them and charged them with disrupting Congress, a misdemeanor. The male protester told an Associated Press reporter, “we are Christians and patriots” before police handcuffed them and led them away.
So I guess if your not a Christian your not a patriot. Why is it that Christian believe they have a right to inflict their beliefs and behavior on everyone. Funny I didn’t see Jews, Muslims, Atheist, Agnostic, Deist and others protesting. Must be a Christian thing.
- For several days, the Mississippi-based American Family Association has urged its members to object to the prayer because Zed would be “seeking the invocation of a non-monotheistic god.”
How ignorant they are “seeking the invocation of a non-monotheistic god”. The man is there to give a prayer…period! If things in this country don’t fit into the tiny brains of the Christians then it’s bad. Isn’t it funny how it’s Christians who keep getting busted for sex, pornography and corruption. I’m not saying other don’t get arrested, but the statistics on Christians are astounding. Maybe they should worry about their own house before they run into other shouting about god.
- “If people have any misunderstanding about Indians and Hindus,” Reid said, “all they have to do is think of Gandhi,” a man “who gave his life for peace.”
- Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said the protest “shows the intolerance of many religious right activists. They say they want more religion in the public square, but it’s clear they mean only their religion.”
Bravo Mr. Lynn and Mr. Reid.
This is just another reason why I am a firm believer in the separation of church and state. If no prayers are said in Congress then Christians would go to church and not public building.
