There Are Still Americans

Filed under: Defending America,Faith,Justice/Law,Republicans — Sisyphus @ 8:57 am

Some Americans are still willing to stand by their flag, their culture, and their Lord:

Three protesters disrupted a prayer by a Hindu chaplain on Thursday at the opening of a U.S. Senate hearing, calling it an abomination and shouting slogans about Jesus Christ.

It was the first time the daily prayer that opens Senate proceedings was said by a Hindu chaplain.

Capitol police said two women and one man were arrested and charged with causing a disruption in the public gallery of the Senate. The three started shouting when guest Chaplain Rajan Zed, a Hindu from Nevada, began his prayer.

They shouted “No Lord but Jesus Christ” and “There’s only one true God,” and used the term “abomination.”

That is the face of patriotism. That is what it means to be an American. To stand by the God who makes this country what it is today is what makes this country great. Jesus is the God in whom we trust, not Vishnu. Jesus is my Lord, and Bush is my President. Liberals may not like that, but liberals are welcome to leave. Liberals are why God invented France. Liberals can all celebrate France Day tomorrow, but today is for Americans with the courage of their convictions and the willpower to fight for a greater America.

God bless America, and God bless us all.

UPDATE: Sheer idiocy.

  1. America is not a christian country, man.
    It´s standing in the constitution, it´s standing in the law, it´s standing in a paper that was approved by COngress without anyone voting against it, the Treaty of Tripoli.

    And that´s all about it. Those 3 persons have disturbed a meeting of the senate and they´re going to suffer the consequences. WOuld they have protested outside, gone to the media or posted something on the internet, I could understand it, but their behaviour in this case shows that they´re nothing but a bunch of hate-filled, fundamentalist idiots deserving what they are about to get.

    The USA are not a christian country in any regard. Conservatives may not like that, but conservatives are welcome to leave.

    PS: France was around waaaaay longer than the USA, so it can not be caused by US liberals.

  2. “America is not a christian country, man.”

    Yes it is. It was founded by Christians, for Christians.

    “And that´s all about it. Those 3 persons have disturbed a meeting of the senate and they´re going to suffer the consequences.

    If you mean acclaim and the thanks of a grateful nation, we most certainly agree.

    It was founded by a bunch of deists declaring independence from Britain that wrote into their new Constitution that it ain´t a christian country.

    I don´t know, what´s the normal sentence for disturbing senate oe cengressional meetings?

    France can hardly be called atheistic (Over 80% of the french are catholics! That´s at least what the CIA World Factbook says….) or liberal. (Sarkozy?)

    And their immigration laws don´t make them take fools either.

    PG, you are just plane wrong on this; Bastille Day is celebration the French Revolution in 1797, that 33 years after American Revolution. If you haven’t noticed the French flag is red, white and blue in deliberate impersonation of our flag. The French are Johnny-Come-Latelys to the Freedom game. That is why they are so immature.

    Frankly I am outraged that Senator Reid and that Hindu priest weren’t imprisoned for what they did. As a Christian I am required to be intolerant of other religions. My government shouldn’t be oppressing my faith by allowing others to practice theirs.

  5. I agree with PG. Read the works of Thomas Jefferson, especially the Jefferson Bible! Many of the founding fathers were deists, that is a huge difference from Christianity.

    Also, I don’t normally like to say this, but this is the sort of post that causes a lot of turmoil between Christians and non-Christians. This is the type of post that actually drives people away from Christianity. As a former Christian, one whom still holds the religion in regard, please think about how you phrase things in the future!

  6. Those three people should’ve shut their faces and respected the man. You don’t have to agree with someone in this country but civility is expected. If you don’t like it–protest it, but do not open your fat trap in Congress declaring “abomination” towards someone elses beliefs when your own are open to the same disrespect when you sink to that level. He offered a peaceful deal. He wished to show respect in his way. And those three ruined it. It goes to show that some people think that Christians are the only ones that deserve rights in this country which is NOT the founding principal of the country, and it is NOT fact. (See: Bill of Rights)

    And no Sisyphus, I’m not Hindu. I’m not an atheist. I’m not liberal. (Just in case we had to clear that up again.)

  7. BJ let’s take your HIstory ignorant comment followed by your selfish remark, shall we?

    France has been around for a LONG time. The Revolution in France was a change in government (why don’t you read up on it, ok?) not the fight for rights to be a country of their own. It was civil war. (We had one too!)

    Then, as Christian you are told to love your neighbor…not disrespect the snot out of them. While you don’t agree with him does not mean you hurt him. That’s not Christian. You are told to share your faith not shove it down someone’s throat. And, “My government shouldn’t be oppressing my faith by allowing others to practice theirs.” is one of the most selfish and misguided things I’ve seen yet. You are not the only person in this country. (I suggest read the Bill of Rights) You have the same rights as anyone else in this country no matter their religion, gender, and to an extent age (obviously some things come later). They weren’t oppressing your faith. They were allowing someone to be free with theirs. Any other time the Congress opens in Christian prayer. So with your logic they are oppressing all the other faiths present in this country. Wow, I think someone’s biased. (Who would’ve thought that, eh?)

  14. The Establisment Clause of the First Amendment very specifically states that Congress CANNOT establish a national religion, CANNOT favour one religion over another, and CANNOT favour religion over irreligion. I would LOVE to see somebody argue such a basic and simple article of the Constitution. Christian Nation indeed…

  16. You moonbats are too much. Show me one passage in The Bible were God doesn’t label any other god as false or Satan in disguise. As for the “love thy neighbor:, yes Jesus said that, but if you would ever bother to read the whole statement from Him He specifically tells us Christians to only live with other Christians and love only them. Well that is why Jesus gave us America so we Christians could have our community. If Hindus want to join us they are welcome to do that as long as they do that as Christians.

  23. It is understandable that a christian could have a bit of a beef with Hinduism.

    If these Christians can be percieved as rude we should give them a pass. We are nothing if not a tolerant nation. We are all fallible and in need of salvation. While it is true that there will be no salvation for heathen practicioners, Jesus wants us to come to him of our own free will.

    Till then we should let them practice their religion as our constitution allows. All the while maintaining our stance that we will not be cowed by Hinduism.

    And Christians in return are as tolerant as they come. We had to tolerate separation of church and state being claimed to be in the constitution when it is not. The constitution gaurrenties freedom for religion, not freedom from religion.

    We had to tolerate one woman having Christian prayer taken out of school while, even now, the CA school systems are making considerations for muslim prayer in public schools. We have to tolerate evolution forced on us while design (google “orchid wasp” for a great example of perfect design) is forced out. We have to tolerate the Ten Commandments being removed from every public place while Mary is made of dog excrement and displayed as art. We had to tolerate GOD removed from schools while metal detectors are being installed to replace HIM. The list is endless of what we tolerate.

    And to ensure this freedom of religion, it must not be possible for any religion to influence the government. Otherwise said freedom would quickly be endangered.

    And of course, read the quotes of the founding fathers and read the Treaty of Tripoli.

    Evolution is science and should be teached in biology classes. ID is nothing but religion and should thus be teached in religion classes. End of story.

  25. PG,
    You are right that questions of faith should be taught in religion classes.

    But there are questions to the theories of evolutionary science that should be taught in science classes.

    And most disturbingly there are aspects of “Evolution theory” that should be required to be taught in religion classes.

    Too many aspects of these Evolutionary theories present themselves as an atheistic theology posing as science.

    Let me remind you of Senator Brownback’s own words on the subject: “There is no one single theory of evolution, as proponents of punctuated equilibrium and classical Darwinism continue to feud today. Many questions raised by evolutionary theory — like whether man has a unique place in the world or is merely the chance product of random mutations — go beyond empirical science and are better addressed in the realm of philosophy or theology.

    The most passionate advocates of evolutionary theory offer a vision of man as a kind of historical accident. That being the case, many believers — myself included — reject arguments for evolution that dismiss the possibility of divine causality.

    Comment by Johnny D. Rotten — July 13, 2007 @ 1:34 pm | Reply

  26. The thing is Johnny, that the theory of evolution tells us how today´s lifeforms have come into existence, not why. It´s still perfectly possible that it all was planned by a supernatural being (say, for example, god). Or it could have been simple coincidence. And that´s the differrence to ID. Evolution simply confesses that it doesn´t know the reason of what happened for 100%, unlike ID, which puts in a “creator” without delivering any real evidence for his/it´s existence.

    That´s my standpoint. It could have been planned by some higher being, but it could also have been pure coincidence. Fact is that we don´t know it and will likely never know. (And before anyone butts in: Believing, as strong as you want, is not knowing. Knowing is only possible with solid evidence and facts.)

  27. If you study your history, I think you will be surprised to discover that the “establishment clause” was a failsafe against just this sort of junk. It was a comprimise to ensure that stupid religions like Hinduism, Buddism, Islamism, Scientology, Mormonism, Satanism, etc could not be forced on the nation by an out of control Congress. It was a gift from our Christian forefathers to ensure that America remain a Christian nation for its Christian people.

  29. PG,

    You may want to school yourself on the current cutting edge developments in Physics and Cosmology. The Anthropic Principle allows us to test for evidence of a Fine Tuned Universe. Again and again we find confirmation of design at work.

    You can no longer say that we will never know. While there will continue to be much study needed to confirm the theories, the evidence gathered so far is encouraging.

    Seriously, I´m actually just a bit worried. If WWII left at least one good thing for my country, then the ability to see when something takes a turn towards an oppressive regime. Right now, the USA are on that route.

    14 Warning Signs of Fascism:

    1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism – Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public disp

    That´s obvious.

    2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights – Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of “need.” The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

    Can one say Gitmo, Abu Ghreib or Haditha?

    3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause – The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

    Another point needing no explanation.

    4. Supremacy of the Military – Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

    Another given.

    5. Rampant Sexism – The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.

    The first one where it is not 100% the case. Although certain americans would like to change it…

    6. Controlled Mass Media – Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

    May I say embedded journalists? Or take the reaction to CNN showing the sniper video.

    7. Obsession with National Security – Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

    Seriously no comment needed.

    8. Religion and Government are Intertwined – Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government’s policies or actions.

    Bush uses quite a lot of religious rhetoric. And someone wants to break down the barriers between government and church.

    9. Corporate Power is Protected – The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

    Enron and Libby, just to name two cases.

    10. Labor Power is Suppressed – Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.

    The republican opinion towards unions is quite well known.

    11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts – Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.

    With such things as denying evolution, this needs no explanation.

    12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment – Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

    Patriot Act anyone?

    13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption – Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

    The Bush government is basically the archetype of what´s described here.

    14. Fraudulent Elections – Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

    2000, Gore vs Bush, Supreme Court. Those 3 terms say it all.

    Seems like my concerns are justified…

  37. Ignatius, you’re just plain wrong. Read the establishment clause. It very, very specifically states that NO religion may ever be endorsed by the government, oppressed by the government, or held in higher esteem than any other, INCLUDING “irreligion” (atheism). Therefore, atheism is protected from Christianity, and vice versa.

    Comment by Adam Nelson — July 13, 2007 @ 7:01 pm | Reply

  38. The Establishment Clause was created as a reaction to the Church of England. They didn’t want domination by a single religious group, the Anglicans, so they formed a country where no religion can be endorsed by the state. Therefore, it is unconstitutional and un-American to desire an end to church-state separation, or to have the government prefer one religion over another.
