Hindu statues and atheist politicians

December 15, 2013

The Last Taboo is Jennifer Hecht’s recent article about the bias facing any would-be American politician who is an atheist. Interestingly, it was easier for politicians to deviate from mainstream religion earlier in this nation’s history. Taft, a Unitarian, openly denied the divinity of Jesus, and was elected president. As a Republican!

Hindus want to erect a statue of Hanuman at the Oklahoma Capitol, putting into a bind the Oklahoma state legislature, which eagerly arranged for a ten commandments statue not long past. They are about to be schooled in the 1st and 14th amendments. (Photo shows 11th c. statue of Hanuman.)
