Lost Liberties: Hindu Prayer in Senate


Last Tuesday, I posted an article concerning some of the things that are happening to our country as we rapidly decline to an anti-Christian nation. I believe that this is in large part due to our lack of evangelistic zeal and lukewarm Christianity. The most shocking part of the article was the Hindu priest who was allowed to pray to his gods in the U.S. Senate for the very first time. 3 people tried to shout him down and it was recorded as a one minute video:

This was his prayer: “Let us pray. We meditate on the transcendental glory of the deity supreme who is inside the heart of the Earth, inside the life of the sky, and inside the soul of the heaven.”

A Christian commentator said the three Christian activists, Ante Pavkovic, his wife, and his 19-year-old daughter, who were arrested for disrupting the Hindu prayer “are heroes and history will show them as such.”

Do you agree?
Do you condone this type of disruption?
Is it right for the Senate to offer prayers to false, pagan gods?
What responsibility do Christians play in all this?


  1. Lord, please help us to stand against this abomination strong! and even be willing to be arrested to stop the heart of our great nation from serving false gods. Steve, this really signals louder than anything else that the time is short to spead the gospel. I trembled as I watched this. I was reminded of the abomination of desolation that is to happen in the future when the anti-christ will stand in the temple in Jerusalem and proclaim himself as god. Even so, come Lord Jesus.

  2. Ugh and eww… we have really come a long way from our roots.

    As for the protesters, shouldn’t they have 1st Admendment Freedom of Speech? If a Hindu protester shouted down a Christian prayer and was arrested the ACLU would be up in arms.

    But, sadly, they might as well stop having prayers in the Senate since the Congress and the nation is no longer Christian. With the likes of Pelosi, Frank, Kennedy, Obama and their ilk in Congress, a Christian prayer ends up being a violation of the 3rd Commandment.

  3. First I feel the protesters were being disrespectful of the Senate and should have been asked to stop. Although I feel this man should not have been allowed to pray in the Senate.

    What should we do? Write our representatives and express our view that this should not be allowed.

    Robert if we stop the Hindu from praying we are violating his freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

  4. I didn’t say that we should stop the Hindu prayer.

    I just said that the protesters should have freedom of speech too.

    Actually, it was your suggestion to write our reps and express the view that this should not be allowed.

    I really think that any prayer in such a Godless place like Congress is pointless, and perhaps even taking God’s name in vain. In fact, the Hindu prayer, going up to a multitude of false gods, is probably more appropriate than a prayer to the one, true God (given that we are a nation that has legal abortion and many other abominable things).

    Instead, we should be praying FOR Congress.

  5. We’ve got to make a stand while we still can. As Christians we must cry aloud, spare not and lift up our voices as a trumpets to tell these people (many of whom claim to have a relationship with God), their transgressions.

    I know that they have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof, but just like in the Isaiah’s day we must speak even if they will not hear us.

    Jeremiah preached to Israel, God’s chosen people for over twenty years but only two people are listed as heeding his warning.

    This means we must be salt and light even if it means shouting down a pagan who’s praying in Congress.
