More hypocrisy from local fringe-leftists?

Remember how left wing heads exploded all over the county when the commissioners did what both Houses of the Federal Government have done for the past 230 plus years by implementing prayer to start meetings?

Where are those same voices condemning this?  Silent.  In part, because the Belle of Botox is sitting there in the meeting.  Secondary to that because the leftists really don't give a damn... they're just looking for any issue they think they can find... no matter the hypocrisy.

And this.... is just another sign... of that.

In a first for the Senate, Dalai Lama gives the opening prayer

WASHINGTON — The Dalai Lama, the exiled spiritual leader of Tibet, delivered the opening invocation in the U.S. Senate on Thursday, praying "to Buddha and all" and suggesting that purity of thought will guide humanity's actions.

In his saffron robe, the Dalai Lama climbed the few steps to the Senate dais and delivered the three-line prayer, first in the Tibetan language, then in English. He chuckled over his English pronunciation.

"With our thoughts we make our world," the prayer began. "Our mind is central and precedes our deeds. Speak or act with a pure mind and happiness will follow you like a shadow that never leaves."
The Buddhist monk is continuing a U.S. visit, after meeting last month with President Barack Obama at the White House despite objections from China, which accuses the Nobel Peace Prize winner of instigating a Tibetan independence campaign to separate from China.

The Dalai Lama planned to hold visits with congressional leaders Thursday across Capitol Hill.
