Dogpiling on Bill Sali!

David Neiwert has more from Sali, who is attacking "multiculturalism" as being contrary to the national motto "E Pluribus Unum."

Don't ask me, I don't get it either.

In addition, Sali had this to say:
In response to his concerns about the Hindu prayer offered in the Senate in July, Sali said it is Christianity that drives many good causes in the United States. "Christian principles work, and they show up in a lot of different areas," Sali said. "Most of the hospitals in this country have Christian names. If you think Hindu prayer is great, where are the Hindu hospitals in this country? Go down the list. Where are the atheist hospitals in this country? They're not equal."

Question: "Where are the atheist hospitals in this country?"
Answer: Everywhere.

Every hospital is atheist, Bill, no matter its name. I don't care what name it has, I don't care what the religions are of the people who work there. Hospitals work on biology, anatomy, chemistry, in a word: science. They don't run on religion. We don't have doctors setting up vigils to pray people back to good health. The efficacy of Hindu prayer is equal to that of Christian prayer, which is to say, non-existent.

So I propose this challenge to Representative Sali: If Christian prayer is so great, the next time you're sick or injured, why not go to a faith healer instead of a doctor?
