Idaho State Senator Objects To Hindu Invocation

Hindu cleric Rajan Zed of Reno, Nevada is scheduled to open this morning's session of the Idaho state Senate with an invocation.  Zed has offered invocations in a number of state legislatures and the U.S. Senate.  The Spokane (WA)  Spokesman-Review, however, reports that Idaho state Senator Steve Vik is raising objections to invocations not in the Judeo-Christian tradition.  Speaking of Hindus, he said: "They have a caste system. They worship cows."
