Meanwhile the MFC's parent the FRC is in the news showing their true
colors. This is from an AP story published today:

A major conservative group is complaining that an
invitation to a Hindu priest to give the prayer at the opening of a House
session is another indication of the nation drifting from its
Judeo-Christian roots.

``Our founders expected that Christianity - and no other religion - would
receive support from the government as long as that support did not
violate peoples' consciences and their right to worship,'' said the Family
Research Council, a leading advocacy group for conservative causes.

``They would have found utterly incredible the idea that all religions,
including paganism, be treated with equal deference,'' the group said in a comment posted on its Web page.>>

The FRC after getting some egg on their faces by this, then issued a
clarification:
