Idaho Values Alliance Defends Sali Faith Statement

re: Congressman Bill Sali's stance against Muslim, Hindu prayers in Congress here

Here is a statement in response to the criticism of Sali, from Bryan Fischer, Executive Director of the Idaho Values Alliance: “Despite the criticism Rep. Sali has received, he is exactly right on both counts. Hindus believe in a virtually infinite number of gods, and worship cows, monkeys and snakes, while our Founding Fathers believed in one God, the Creator God revealed in the Old and New Testaments. As a people, we pledge allegiance to ‘one nation under God,’ not to ‘one nation under gods.’ Hindus are free in America to worship as many gods and animals as they want to, but they do not pray to or worship the God who is enshrined in our Declaration of Independence (Continued in extended entry).
