SENATE PRAYER: Turning Corner On a Dead-End Street

A seminal event took place in the US Senate on 12 July 2007 ...
A Hindu clergyman made history yesterday by offering the Senate's morning prayer


Rajan Zed, director of interfaith relations at a Hindu temple in Reno, Nev., gave the prayer that opens each day's Senate session.
Many will rejoice at the news, in herd-like knee-jerk reaction, accompanied by a cacophony of syco-fantastic and short-sighted babbling.
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."
Well, that just about covers it all ... kinda tickles the ears, doesn't it?
Zed, who was born in India, was invited by Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) He 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."
Harry, Zed's prayer has more insight than that kind of political emptiness.

This, dear friends, is one more brick in the growing pile of bricks which will one day be used by anti-Christians to break every pillar of support for Senate Prayer, etc.
