The Republican Party of Texas reaffirms the United States of America is a Christian nation.
The Family Research Council's scurrilous attack on a Hindu priest's prayer in the U.S. House of Representatives "reeks of religious bigotry," said Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a watchdog group that monitors the Religious Right.
Venkatachalapathi Samuldrala, a Hindu priest with the Shiva Vishnu Temple in Parma, Ohio, made history on Sept. 14 by becoming the first Hindu religious leader to offer an invocation before a session of Congress.
In response to the prayer, the Family Research Council, the most prominent Religious Right lobbying group in Washington, D.C., disparaged religious pluralism and said only Christianity deserves government support in this week's edition of the group's CultureFacts newsletter.
"(W)hile it is true that the United States of America was founded on the sacred principle of religious freedom for all," the FRC wrote, "that liberty was never intended to exalt other religions to the level that Christianity holds in our country's heritage."
The group added, "Our Founders expected that Christianity -- and no other religion -- would receive support from the government as long as that support did not violate peoples' consciences and their right to worship. They would have found utterly incredible the idea that all religions, including paganism, be treated with equal deference."
The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United, said an attack such as this is telling about the Religious Right's regard for non-Christian religious minorities.
