Sigh

Who put all these things in his head? American Family News Network (08.08.07), via Kos:
"Last month, the U.S. Senate was opened for the first time ever with a Hindu prayer. Although the event generated little outrage on Capitol Hill, Representative Bill Sali (R - ID1) is one member of Congress who believes the prayer should have never been allowed.

'We have not only a Hindu prayer being offered in the Senate, we have a Muslim member of the House of Representatives now, Keith Ellison from Minnesota. Those are changes -- and they are not what was envisioned by the Founding Fathers,' asserts Sali."

Idaho congressman disturbed by Hindu prayer in Senate, election of Muslim to House

"Sali says America was built on Christian principles that were derived from scripture. He also says the only way the United States has been allowed to exist in a world that is so hostile to Christian principles is through 'the protective hand of God.'"

"According to Congressman Sali, the only way the U.S. can continue to survive is under that protective hand of God. He states when a Hindu prayer is offered, 'that's a different god' and that it 'creates problems for the longevity of this country.'"

Not that it matters much to Bill, but by some estimates, Christianity has more believers worldwide than any other religion.

This country, though built on Christian principles, has as a cornerstone the freedom of religious beliefs. I have to wonder if anyone of the people professing a "One and ONLY" God, has asked and gotten a direct answer from God that that God is the one and only or it is "same God, different name". Being a recovering Catholic and reflecting on some of the behavior I experienced from "that God's" representatives (a one and only system), I want nothing to do with them or their God. Also, there are close parallels outlined in the various books used by various beliefs, including the Bhagavad Gita, that it seems to be the same inspiration source. Might I suggest some reading? I really think God is more concerned about love, charity and battling REAL evil. It's is very easy for "the dark side" to confuse the focus with nit picking on differences in belief systems.
