When none would take a stand.....

Three 'Christian patriots' interrupted the Hindu prayer in the Senate yesterday. They were identified by the police as Ante Nedlko Pavkovic, Katherine Lynn Pavkovic and Christan Renee Sugar.

"Lord Jesus, forgive us, Father, for allowing the prayer of the wicked, which is an abomination in your sight," said a male protester.

"You shall have no other gods before you. … "

The Hindu cleric, Rajan Zed, was the first of his religion to ever give the opening prayer in the Senate. He was invited by Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid. Rajan Zed is from Reno, Nevada.

I support allowing all religions to participate in public life. These protesters were not patriots, since patriots by definition love their country. These xenophobes only love their own religion, and would like to use it to squash the existence of others.

Just as Iran is an "Islamic Republic" where other religions are of second class status, these people would like America to turn into a "Christian Republic" where their brand of religion dominates.

Patriots like me will oppose them with all our might. America was not founded on principles of exclusivism and superiority of one religion.

Much has been made about the tolerance of the Hindus vs. the exclusivity of the Christians.

I'd like to note that Hindus have thousands of gods. To add Jesus, the Holy Spirit, etc. to this pantheon does not bother them much.

However, the God of the Bible tolerates no others.

Ratbert, we are not constitutionally a Christian nation, much to my sorrow. We are, however, culturally and historically a Christian nation. We pray to the Hindu gods to our extreme loss.

Marie, you said it much better than I could. Our God is a 'jealous God', and, as you said, He will tolerate no other!

Ratbert would not call these people patriots, but, to me, they are the ultimate of patriots that LOVE their country. They are standing up against something they feel is wrong.

I totally agree with you! There is ONE TRUTH and that is the Lord, Jesus Christ. To allow this man to give a prayer in our Senate goes against the One True and Living God.

Having "tolerance" does not make something right. Its either truth or not. Simple as that.

I grieve for this sad turn of events in our country that was founded on Christian principles. We have been so blessed by God, but I shudder to think what will happen as we continue down this road we seem to be on.
