Republican Bigotry In The Senate

Story from Crooks & Liars.
A few weeks ago, the Senate invited a Hindu leader to deliver the daily invocation. Apparently, this has sent Idaho’s Bill Sali (R) over the edge.

“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.

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.”

“You know, the Lord can cause the rain to fall on the just and the unjust alike,” says the Idaho Republican.

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.”

So, apparently, not only does Senator Bill "Scared of Change" Sali feel that not praying to the christian will cause the country to spin out of control like some kind of Pat Frank 'Alas Babylon' bullshit, (If you don't get the refernce, read the fucking book) but also, if they don't all say christian prayers, their god will come down on them as well as the Hindus. How the fuck did this bigot asshole ever wind up with a seat in the fucking Senate? Even in America, not everyone is Christian you jackass, and it's not your job as a polotician to fucking convert them!
