Stupid Fucking Idaho

Move over potatoes, Idaho's has a new export: ignorant, intolerant congressmen


Congressman Bill Sali (pictured) opposed the opening of the Senate with a prayer from a Hindu leader. Sali, a Republican from Idaho, had this to say:

“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,”

Sali says America was built on Christian principles that were derived from scripture. He believes 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.”

I have sent him an email containing a link to the Bill of Rights. I hope he reads it.
