Protested Prayer Offered Up By Hindu Chaplain

Three protesters, Ante Nedlko Pavkovic, Katherine Lynn Pavkovic and Christan Renee Sugar were led out of the Senate in handcuffs for loudly protesting the prayer being given during the opening invocation of the Senate by Rajan Zed, director of interfaith relations at a Hindu Temple. Upon their exit Ante was said to be heard proclaiming he was a Christian and Patriot and [the prayer] was an abomination to God.

Some questions:
-Do you think this speaks well of Christians?
-How should a Christian speak to this issue?
-Should a Christian protest such a thing as this (the Hindu prayer)?
-Should prayer even be offered in a U.S. Government building for tax-paid services?

Will you censor me?

Cineaste,

I do not censor unless one warrants the censorship. As long as anyone conducts themselves in a decent manner and stays on topic, they should be able to say whatever they wish to say. Now, if one comes here and attempts to sale their new book or point my readers to websites that I would not want my children looking at, censoring will take place.

I did not convey my question well. -How should a Christian speak to this issue?
The issue I was referring to was these three people protesting this in the name of Christ and patriotism.

Thanks for the comments Cineaste. Also, just so you know, those questions are not definitive. If you choose to ask questions or respond to other questions that the articles bring up, feel free. The questions I pose are only primers.
