    Default Christian Right Activists Disrupt Hindu Chaplain In The Senate

    For the first time in history, the guest Chaplain in the US Senate today was a Hindu. Unfortunately, Christian extremists decided to rudely disrupt the prayer in a blow to religious pluralism, shouting,
    " Lord Jesus, forgive us father for allowing a prayer of the wicked, which is an abomination in your sight!"
    and
    "This is an abomination. We shall have no other gods before You!"

    Operation Save America put out the following press release, claiming responsibility: http://www.christiannewswire.com/news/575363635.html

    As a member of the religious right, I certainly don't agree with what these people did. I've nver heard of the Operation Save America people

    This makes me sick. I see that they were arrested. Good. I don't know what exactly they'd be charged with, but I hope the punishment is steep.

    Clearly this extreme act is a violation of historical American principles, and goes to a level beyond Gay Marriage, Ten Commandments, and Abortion Debates.

    Makes me sick, at least have some damn respect. Isn't that one of their morals?

    Guess not.

    At least they didn't strap bombs on their chests, or on their children, and blow themselves and others up to make their point.

    I'm not condoning their actions, just trying to put it in some perspective for today's world.

    Yeah, these are the people that give you guys a bad name - yet they're the ones who will get the majority of media attention. But before we start thinking "liberal media slant", let's remember that they do this to most protest groups, environmentalists in particular. In my mind, it's a non-story. Obviously, an unfortunate occurence, but nothing a couple weeks in jail won't cure.

    Edit: And in response to Bball, there have been abortion bombings, but yes, you are right: disrespectful, but not deadly.
