Because this occurred before this creation of this blog, we have never reviewed this video from 2007. In an outrageous act of religious intolerance, a visiting Hindu priest was stopped twice from offering the opening prayer in the United States Senate.
Rajan Zed, a Hindu priest from Reno, Nevada, was about to offer a prayer when three Christian protesters with the anti-abortion group Operation Save America began to shout. The first protester asked for God’s forgiveness for allowing the ”false prayer.” As Senator Bob Casey jumped to the priest’s aide, the first protester screamed “Lord Jesus, forgive us father for allowing a prayer of the wicked, which is an abomination in your sight. This is an abomination. We shall have no other gods before You.”
When Casey called for the sergeant-at-arms to intervene, another protester screamed “No Lord but Jesus Christ! . . . There’s only one true God!”
