Intolerance From A To Zed

Rajan Zed gave the daily opening prayer in the US Senate today, becoming the first Hindu to do so. That didn't sit well with a segment of the monotheistic citizenry. The American Family Association urged protest, and the President of Faith2Action was quoted in the Christian press saying that "U.S. Government-sanctioned Hindu prayers are an abomination." Three self-described "Christians and Patriots" disrupted the prayer, "shouting 'this is an abomination' and other complaints from the gallery," according to the Associated Press.

I wonder if these folks know that Hindu temples get the same tax exemption as Christian churches, which means that the US Government not only sanctions but financially supports Hindu prayers on a daily basis. And imagine if they found out all the breaks we give those crazy Native Americans with their wacky beliefs!
