Letter: Hindu prayer

Has anybody tried to understand Sen. Nuxoll’s side? She and the others have a dedicated commitment to their God who demands “thou shall have no other Gods before me” and the people disparage them because they refused to pray to a cow. To make any debase statement on how people exercise the way they worship is not only tacky but it is illegal.

Idaho Constitution (Art. XXI Sec. 19) “It is ordained by the State of Idaho that perfect toleration of religious sentiment shall be secured, and no inhabitant of said state shall ever be molested in person or property on account of his or her mode of religious worship.”

The general rule is “When in Rome — do as the Romans do,” so to insist that Sen. Nuxoll and the others, when they are on their home turf, put their Christian God on hold while they pray to Zed’s cows is ludicrous. So what we have is anti-christs and nonbelievers telling the good saints how to conduct their prayers.

Trash the political correctness, so now all you complainers it’s your turn to practice what you preach, so you pray to the cows, rats and statues and let others pray the way their faith dictates.
