Rude, Stupid Christians Interrupt Hindu Priest's Senate Invocation

Freedom of religion is only freedom for Christians. Also freedom of speech, it seems.

After Hindu priest Rajan Zed was called to the Senate podium to offer the invocation, he was shouted down by fundamentalist Christians. One shouted out "Lord Jesus, forgive us for allowing the prayer of the wicked, which is an abomination in your sight."

This is a first for the Senate according to SmashZone, who posted the video on YouTube.

Rajan Zed, a Hindu priest from Reno, Nevada, had just stepped up to the podium for the landmark occasion when three protesters, said to belong to the Christian Right anti-abortion group Operation Save America, interrupted him by loudly asking for God's forgiveness for allowing the ''false prayer'' of a Hindu in the Senate chamber.

Operation Save America is the Operation Rescue successor group who also made news for condemning the Sandy Hook interfaith memorial service as an abomination.

If these guys looked in the mirror, they'd see the real abomination -- themselves.
