Born Again Jacknuts

TPM Cafe has news (and video) of an appalling spectacle this morning in the Senate. You know hot the born again fundies during establishment debates feign neutrality? "Why, of course, we wouldn't mind if the Muslim crescent was included in this display" - that sort of stuff. Well, these jackasses didn't get the memo:

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.
'course this kind of thing wouldn't happen if we didn't feel the need to start the government day with a plea to the invisible sky king. Time for a rousing chorus of "Jesus Thinks You're a Jerk."
