Fundamentalist Christians interrupt first ever Hindu prayer in the Senate.

O.K., so when are we, as a nation, going to acknowledge that Fundamentalist Christians are getting completely out of control?

From TPM Café:

Today was a historic first for religion in America's civic life: For the very first time, a Hindu delivered the morning invocation in the Senate chamber — only to find the ceremony disrupted by three Christian right activists.

The three protesters, who all belong to the Christian Right anti-abortion group Operation Save America, and who apparently traveled to Washington all the way from North Carolina, interrupted by loudly asking for God's forgiveness for allowing the false prayer of a Hindu in the Senate chamber.

"Lord Jesus, forgive us father for allowing a prayer of the wicked, which is an abomination in your sight," the first protester began.

"This is an abomination," he continued. "We shall have no other gods before You."

As a commenter at TPM Café noted, “Fundamentalism makes people crazy.”
