The opening prayer in the Senate by Hindu Chaplain Rajan Zed was interupted by two protestors who asked for forgiveness from Jesus Christ for the “abomination” of failing to pray to the “one true God," according to Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

According to AU, religious right organizations have been agitating against the Hindu leader’s prayer since it was announced. The Rev. Donald Wildmon’s American Family Association has asked his members to complain to their senators about the invitation.

The group’s news service reported that “Christian nation” activist David Barton said that Hinduism has few followers in the United States and that prayer to a “non-monotheistic god” is “outside the American paradigm.”
