    Muslim Prayer Opens Congress - IslamOnline.net - News
    WASHINGTON -– The silence in the great hall of the Congress was deafening as imam Abdullah Antepli started delivering the opening prayer for the House of Representatives on Wednesday, March 3.

    "Asalam alaikum… peace be with you," Antepli, the Muslim chaplain at Duke University, told the attendees who stood and bowed their heads in respect.

    "O God of all nations, look with favor upon this esteemed Congress. Guard these important decision-makers with your divine light," he said.

    "Be the source of strength and comfort. Enable them to serve you and glorify your names by serving the citizens of this great nation and to the entire humanity regardless of their gender, ethnicity or religion."

    This thread will die right out, the Liberals Love Affair With Muslims is mind boggling........

    Have you all noticed how silent The Left Wing has been this week on Louie Farrakhan's RACIST HATE WHITEY SH1T, then think back a few months how MSNBC and Drooling Matthews were all over that Pat Robinson guy for something he said.

    PHONY DOUBLE STANDARD RACIST BASTARDS

    I've come to the conclusion that there's really no need for "The Liberals" to join in when "The Conservatives" get on a roll. It's quite obvious that you don't need us. You play with yourselves just fine.

    It dawns on me that you prefer it.

    How about Congress just skip the prayer bullshyte and get to work. Three quarters of these scumbags are either drunk, stoned, screwing their interns, strippers, or the People (I'm only opposed to the last one, BTW). Religion and patriotism rarely enter the thoughts of these lazy creeps, but they wear it on their sleeves and drape the flag all over themselves.

    But Harry, no one even mentioned Allah.

    Abdullah Antepli Prayer for the Congress – Full Text

    O God of all nations
    Look with favor upon this esteemed Congress. Guard these important decision makers with your divine light.
    Be the source of strength and comfort. Enable them to serve you and glorify your names by serving the citizens of this great nation and to the entire humanity regardless of their gender, ethnicity or religion.
    O God, make them your instruments to deliver your divine mercy and compassion. Bless them with your openness and humility.
    Fill their hearts and minds with passion and determination to improve the quality of the life of their fell human beings.
    Grant them success in their efforts to wipe out poverty, ignorance, racism and hatred in this country and beyond.
    O God, make these women and men peacemakers, healers and bridge builders so urgently needed in our wounded and broken times.
    Give them the strength that they need to keep what needs to be kept. Give them the courage they need to change what needs to be change.
    Give them the wisdom they need to distinguish one from the other.
    O God, if we forget you, do not forget us. In your most holy and beautiful names we pray, Amen.

    Yup, great post Whista, it is time that everyone of the bastards be replaced, a turmoil is building right now that could lead to violence in the streets one way to prevent it is at the polls, out with the old and in with the new, all of them, both partys.
