Onward Christian Thugs

Yesterday, for the first time, a Hindu chaplain delivered the prayer in the Senate. Three members of a Christian anti-abortion group, Operation Save America, attempted to interrupt the prayer. While doing so, they were loudly spouting their usual nonsense about there being only one god, and no lord but Jesus. Yada-yada-yada. Why would a Christian favor public prayer anyway? It's contrary to their own scriptures. Don't believe me? Well, here's Mathew 6:5-8, which prefaces the Lord's Prayer.

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him."
