- Christian Right Activists Disrupt Hindu Chaplain In The Senate
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.
"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."
It's always interesting how becoming a christian makes you in no way more like christ. Why doesn't the spirit change? I may never understand that.

why would the spirit change because you assign yourself the label of a powerful interest group?

To be fair, not all christians in the world were there creating a disturbance.
Need more focus in school on how Ben Franklin was an atheist and Jefferson a deist most his life.

The mythical Jesus from the Gospels could also be nasty against people that were not acting according to the right believe.

For example? Not the money changers thing? That's pretty mild in the scheme of things.

Actually, no, I don't recall Jesus "Being nasty" against people with "the wrong beliefs". Unless you're referring to the Pharisees, those with the "right beliefs", but the wrong implementation. Those he called "Whited sepulchers", aka "white-washed tombs".
And yes, he did overturn the tables of the Money Changers, but those tables were in the court of the temple, which is not where they were supposed to be.
People being all self-righteous and condemning in the name of religion is hardly rare, and certainly NOT what Jesus taught.
