Rajan Zed, director of interfaith relations at a Hindu temple in Reno, Nev., gave the brief prayer that opens each day's Senate session.ZED?!?!?
For several days, the Mississippi-based American Family Association has urged its members to object to the prayer because Zed would be "seeking the invocation of a non-monotheistic god."More than enough reason to not allow this travesty immoral ungodly act to have occurred. Why not let a wiccan witch get up there and pray to the tree and rock gods!?!?!?
Zed, the first Hindu to offer the Senate prayer, began: "We meditate on the transcendental glory of the Deity Supreme, who is inside the heart of the Earth, inside the life of the sky and inside the soul of the heaven. May He stimulate and illuminate our minds."Christian senators should have risen up in rage and walked out of the senate chambers. This act was a vile act from Sen. Harry Reid to further undermine the nation that was founded on and in the belief of GOD, the one and only GOD.
"Lead us from the unreal to real, from darkness to light, and from death to immortality. May we be protected together. May we be nourished together. May we work together with great vigor. May our study be enlightening. May no obstacle arise between us."
Seeking the blessings of god on behalf of and for the Senators, Zed declared, "May the Senators strive constantly to serve the welfare of the world, performing their duties with the welfare of others always in mind. Because by devotion to selfless work one attains the supreme goal of life. May they work carefully and wisely, guided by compassion, and without though for themselves."
"United your resolve, united your hearts, may your spirits be at one, that you may long dwell in unity and concord!" he added, and ended with, "Peace, peace, peace be unto all."
Hey, blow it out your worm-hole you pagan! I'm sorry. But to seek immortality and glory based on works it antithetical to the Christian beliefs.
And yet, Ghandi didn't get into politics or make political machinations. He went for peace. He moved for love. He did not make political statements using religion to push his political agenda like Sen Harry Reid.
Zed, who was born in India, was invited by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. Speaking in the chamber shortly after the prayer, Reid defended the choice and linked it to the war debate.
"If people have any misunderstanding about Indians and Hindus," Reid said, "all they have to do is think of Gandhi," a man "who gave his life for peace."
"I think it speaks well of our country that someone representing the faith of about a billion people comes here and can speak in communication with our heavenly Father regarding peace," said Reid, a Mormon...
How can allowing a Hindu Priest to pray to another god, be any way linkable to a debate on the need to fight terrorist?
AND SEN. REID, ZED DID NOT "COMMUNICATE" WITH "OUR HEAVENLY FATHER"!!!!!! And, I don't know who your heavenly father is, but the Hindu's "father" is not the Father and Lord of the Christian faith. To believe that all religions pray to the same GOD above is sheer ignorance, stupidity and heresy. You sir should be excommunicated from your religion. A religion by the way that follows a man that heard voices from a fallen angel. So, it is obvious that your religion prays to a god that is not the same GOD of Christians.
Again, Christian senators should have risen up and walked out if they truly believed in and were defenders of their faith.
hahahaahahahahahaha,, and of course, they had to get the most anti-christian man to defend the attack on the Christian faith. Who did they get you ask???
Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said the protest "shows the intolerance of many religious right activists. They say they want more religion in the public square, but it's clear they mean only their religion."Heck yeah. We don't want demonists, witches, demonologists, pagans, and other non-Christian faiths pushing their beliefs upon unsuspecting people looking for a belief in something. We don't want to have it seem that all religions are the same and OK. Not all religions are OK. Not all beliefs can co-exist with the Christian ideology that his nation was founded upon.
