Hindus to Take over US Capitol

(WARNING: THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH IS INTENDED AS SARCASM)

I never thought this could happen but it’s true. The leaders of our nation are allowing a pagan to pray to their ‘gods’ under our very own capitol dome, a dome inscribed with the name of the one and only American God. If you don’t believe me then check out this ‘newspaper’ link. (Don’t miss out on the very patient, thoughtful and well reasoned comments below the article.)

When will the right wing of US Christianity get it? Aside from their lack of charity, Jesus did not suggest that there ever could (or should) be a Christian nation. In fact, it’s oxymoronic.

Let’s not forget that there are plenty of US citizens who are not Christian; there are Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim, Native American, as well as Hindu and many others. Our country is founded on religious freedom and I think this prayer would fall under that mantle.

Let me suggest one other thing; is it possible that since this man holds himself accountable to something higher than himself (or other men), accountable towards his vision of a peace loving God, that there might be some value to that? Jesus himself spoke very highly of certain ‘pagans’. When responding to the remarks of a Roman centurion, a man who was required to proclaim Caesar as God incarnate, he had this to say;

“When Jesus heard this, he was astonished and said to those following him, “I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.” Matthew 8:10

    I couldn’t disagree more. The Jews were regarded as the “Peculiar People” as it was necessary for them to remain ‘apart’ from the rest of the world so that they may continue to set the moral example that God required.

    I think Christian Nation is oxymoronic. Whatever the conventional wisdom is at any particular time (especially as reflected in our culture) because it is primarily concerned with worldly issues would of necessity be at odds with the fundamentals of Christianity; sacrifice, service, weakness etc. Christian leadership as we define it today is oxymoronic as well. “He who is last shall be first” – “it is greater to serve” etc. etc.

    When the Church is too cuddly with the government (Babylon) then trouble is a-brewin’.
