Senate Prayer Incident - Unbeliever's Land
...The continuing chronicles...
Senate Prayer Incident
Yesterday, the United States Senate opened with a Hindu prayer for the first time in it's history.

And three right-wing Christian activists from "Operation Save America" immediately started screaming about Jesus being the One True God, disrupting the prayer until they were arrested and dragged from the court.

[Here's the video.]

*SIGH*  Where to begin?

I could congratulate the Dems for attempting to be inclusive, and for quickly getting rid of the disruption.

I could question why none of the Senators publicly apologized to the man for the disruption, or publicly disavowed the message of the activists that this is One Nation Under the Christian God and Everyone had Better Get Used To It.  (Once again, the Bad Christians feel free dominate the room and speak their minds, while the Good Christians, apart from removing the disruption, say NOTHING.)

But mostly, this is just another demonstration of why Church and State are supposed to be SEPARATE.  Our government has winked and nudged and smiled and flirted with Christianity for so long, that if it even GLANCES at another religion for a moment or two, Christianity feels betrayed.

Well you know what?  Our government's supposed to be ABSTINENT!  We're NOT putting a ring on Christianity's finger.  We're NOT going steady with Christianity while sneaking a peak at other religions as they walk by.  We're not even supposed to be casually dating religions to see if we can get to second base.

Our government must resist the urge to "fool around" with any religion at all, because they're all dirty, dirty whores who want nothing better than to get their hands on the hot man-seed of our Governmental Authority, and give birth to demon hybrid Church-State monsters who will devour our freedom and drag us back into the Dark Ages...

And I REALLY shoulda stopped that metaphor a paragraph or two sooner.

Sorry about that...
