Topic: "Our God Is Better" (3)
Frodo has an opinion about almost everything and everybody. This sometimes includes things about which he knows virtually nothing. Frodo looks at Religion as he does Art; he knows what he likes. He may have no interest whatsoever in a particular school or form of Art, and that may be due to the fact that he simply doesn't understand it, but he doesn't have anything negative to say about someone who really gets off on it. "Folk Art," strangely enough, is something that does not move Frodo at all, nor does Zoroastrianism. What truly irritates Frodo however, is someone who condemns both, for they are truly representative of dark forces.
Frodo's good friend Merry has written of late about the influence of religiously-oriented individuals in the political realm. Merry is wise and respectful of others. Much there is to consider for politicians seeking victory in upcoming elections, because voters grow increasingly skeptical, finally, about those who proclaim "Gott mit uns." For you, dear reader, who speaks not of the Teutonic, be advised that the National Socialists in Germany proclaimed God to be on their side, too.
This past Thursday a Hindu clergyman, named Rajan Zed, made history by offering the morning prayer to open that day's session of the United States Senate. He began his prayer with these words, "We meditate on the transcendental glory of the Deity Supreme, who is inside the heart of the Earth, inside the life of the sky and inside the soul of the heaven. May he stimulate and illuminate our minds." As the Senate prepared to again debate the folly of Iraq, he closed his prayer thusly, "Peace, peace, peace be unto all."
Suddenly, two women and a man began to shout from the Gallery, "This is an abomination." As they were quickly subdued by police officers, the male told an AP reporter "We are Christians and patriots." Capitol Police later identified the three as Ante Nedlko Pavkovic, Katherine Lynn Pavkovic, and Christian Renee Sugar. Their ages and hometowns were not identified.
It is noted that for several days the Mississippi-based American Family Association has urged its members to object to the prayer because Mr. Zed would be "seeking the invocation of a non-monotheistic god."
Mr. Zed was invited by United States Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), who is a Mormon. Senator Reid said afterwards, "I think it speaks well of our country that someone representing the faith of about a billion people comes here and can speak in communication with our heavenly Father regarding peace."
Frodo once said that if there aren't any dogs in Heaven, then he chooses not to go there. If the cretins identified above go there, then Frodo similarly chooses another direction for Eternity. If anyone, dear reader, should happen to know one of the three identified above, and the opportunity arises, please raise one leg and piss on them while proclaiming, "For Frodo!"
