Taking Texas And The Nation Back

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.

    It’s very sad that some Christians, who always seem to make headlines, give a bad name to all Christians.

    Click the ‘politics’ tag and you’ll see everyone is talking about this though. At least they got their message out.

  4. nytexan said

    They are good at getting attention. I hope the message everyone takes away from this is we are a country of tolerance and inclusiveness

    I think the religious reich and the whole GOP is made up of a bunch of traitors. Anyone agree?

  6. kayinmaine said

    NYTexan, I was pleased this made the news all day. It should have for crying out loud! What the hell were the reich wing bastards thinking!! They could care less that the floor of the Senate and the House, especially when in session, is a ‘sacred’ place. Bunch of American hating assholes they are…

    There are no freedoms when the reich wingers are in charge of this country. I effing hate them.

  12. nytexan said

    Thank you. I watched it and I felt so sad. What have we become?

  13. mirth said

    nytexan…that was my reaction: sad. The first time for the man to offer a prayer in the Senate, and to be treated so badly.
    Sad and ashamed that my fellow citizens can behave this way.

  14. nytexan said

    What gives them the right to shame all of us like that?

  15. nytexan said

    You are so right. They have no respect for anyone or anything that doesn’t fit in there little box.

  16. kip152 said

    I think Nytexan put it best: What have we become?
    Those kind of people were the reason I decided to leave the church – maybe I should thank them.

  17. Suzie-Q said

    You’re title drew me in like a moth to a flame. Although, it wasn’t about what I thought it was going to be about. I was imagining more “Holy Rollers Gone Wild!” Oh, well … I heard the auido of this on the BBC. It’s nice to know that we can humiliate ourselves over any topic.

    … singing LOUDLY – “I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free .. of Hindi and I won’t forget get the Jew that died to give that right to me and I proudly stand up next to you .. as long as you’re not Catholic, Muslim or gay .. cause there ain’t no doubt I love dis land .. Baby JESUS bless the USA!”

  20. nytexan said

    LOL…“Holy Rollers Gone Wild!”, that would be Vitter been busted.

    Your song is priceless.
