U.S. Rep. Bill Sali is making waves on the blogosphere (oh, here we are!) for comments regarding Muslims in Congress.
Muslim Congressmen and Hindu prayers, he said, don't belong in the House built by the Founding Fathers.
He's got Bryan Fischer at his side, who agrees that anyone who worships "cows, monkeys and snakes" is at odds with the whole "One Nation Under God" notion.
The whole shebang started with Sali's comments on OneNewsNow, an online news site, where he made comments like these, regarding U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, and the opening convocation of the House given in Hindu recently:
"We have not only a Hindu prayer being offered in the Senate, we have a Muslim member of the House of Representatives now, Keith Ellison from Minnesota. Those are changes -- and they are not what was envisioned by the Founding Fathers," asserts Sali.
Sali says America was built on Christian principles that were derived from scripture. He also says the only way the United States has been allowed to exist in a world that is so hostile to Christian principles is through "the protective hand of God."
"You know, the Lord can cause the rain to fall on the just and the unjust alike," says the Idaho Republican.
According to Congressman Sali, the only way the U.S. can continue to survive is under that protective hand of God. He states when a Hindu prayer is offered, "that's a different god" and that it "creates problems for the longevity of this country."
