Iowa State Legislature..Opening Prayer by Imam

h/t writer mom at LGF"

There seems to be some concern over the opening prayer at the Iowa State Legislature by Imam Muhammad Khan of the Islamic Center of Des Moines.

Frankly I don't see any reason to get excited over it. We hear the phrases all the time! Now tell me would "Victory over those who disbelieve" or "Protection from the great Satan" be cause for alarm?

Senator Steve Kettering was questioned over it he stated he had not heard the opening prayer and added "I should point out that the Senate had a Catholic priest for their opening prayer".

Well that clears everything up Senator Kettering although Rep Gary Wartham of Storm Lake seems to disagree. He happens to have 2 sons in the military and stated "the words jumped out at him". more....
