1. And this is why the Separation of Church and State exists

Enough with the pointless prayers before government meetings, kick them all out and get on with the people's business.

4. ITA...

but since he was invited to speak (and they are) this was totally disrespectful to the speaker. They should be treated as they treat any other disruption. Clear them from the room.

5. Absolutely!

What they did was vile and disgusting!

I'd like to know who those goons were. They shouldnt enjoy any anonymity.

13. First of all, they were the founders, but they ain't my daddy. Founding Fathers grates on

my last nerve. Secondly, the founders were often very much not Christian acolytes. This is Christian revisionism, plain and simple. The founders were largely secularists and deists. Our founders sought freedom from religion as much as the sought freedom of religion. Religion was to be kept separate from the state. Where do these uneducated boobs get off?

14. If these people committed as much mental effort on things more productive than they do

memorizing and reciting scripture, and begging for mercy, they might actually accomplish something more useful than guarding their omnipotent god against the utterances of the small, meek Indian man.

18. Stupidity on display

Thanks for posting this - I wondered who did it when it happened.

Sometimes I'm reminded of the phrase, "I love humanity. It's people I can't stand." LOL.

17. These interruptors should be immediately taken from the room, then their names and photos should be

Released showing their congressional district...y'know a little consequence, no?

21. At minimum a misdemeanor and hassle of having to face a judge.

We're talking the United States Senate here, the highest legislative body in the land.

19. Not Senators - see this -

http://www.christianpost.com/news/protestors-interrupt-senate-s-first-hindu-led-prayer-28443/


Three protestors calling themselves “patriots” disrupted a Hindu prayer that was set to open up the Senate this past Thursday.

The invocation – which made history as the first Hindu-led prayer – was led by Rajan Zed, a Hindu chaplain from Nevada, but was interrupted by two women and one man from the group Operation Save America/Operation Rescue.

9. I don't see a lot of difference between these people and the Phelps crew.

Just a bunch of close minded bigots hiding behind a façade of Christian love.

12. That is one of the douchiest things I've had the displeasure of seeing.

I'm an atheist, and have very little regard for either of those in the video beliefs, but common decency would inform me to keep my fucking mouth shut while my guest was speaking. So, go to hell xtian soldiers in the vid.

15. Just good christans showing 'their' god's love for their fellow man.......

One of the sanest things about the separation of church and state is that unlike some other parts of the world the various cults haven't been killing each other in the streets.

Yet.

20. Ugh, I thought it was a Senator at first.

That would've been absolutely insane and would've made a complete disgrace of the Senate.
