WASHINGTON, July 30 /Christian Newswire/ -- Tuesday morning, July 31, 2007 three gentle Christians will appear before man's court to answer charges for standing up for Jesus before a nation that has forsaken the God of our fathers.
On Thursday, July 12th, in the year of our Lord 2007, at approximately 9:30am, Ante & Kathy Pavkovic, along with their daughter Christen Sugar, were visiting the gallery of the United States Senate in Washington, D.C. It was during the opening of the session that a Hindu clergyman was invited by Senator Harry Reid of Nevada to open in prayer. A Hindu opening prayer in the United States Senate?
Have our elected officials forgotten so quickly the God of our Forefathers, the God who has blessed America and made her the mightiest nation in the world? Has Jesus, who made this nation free, been prostrated to the same level as every other religion? Ante and Kathy Pavkovic, and their daughter Christen Sugar, rose to their feet to rightly proclaim the one true God – Jesus Christ – the One before Whom every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess.
As the Hindu clergyman began his prayer to his false god, Ante rose up and proclaimed, "Lord Jesus, forgive us Father for allowing the prayer of the wicked which is an abomination in Your sight." Senator Casey commanded, "The Sergeant at arms will restore order in the Senate As Ante was being restrained he quoted Psalm 33:12, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord" and the 1st Commandment, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." And then closed with, "You are the One true living God."
Next his wife Kathy stood and quoted John 14:6, "Jesus is the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." She was also restrained by the Sergeant at arms and then their daughter Christen began pleading to God saying, "Father, forgive us for betraying your Son Jesus." She was also arrested.
