He’s a buddhist. To what or whom does he pray?
soebarkah’s not inviting him to golf? “Long hitter, the Lama.”
The Senate Chaplain opens every session with a prayer, and to date every Senate Chaplain has been Christian. So what kind of prayer do you think they offer?

The Congress always has a prayer. Too bad they don’t really listen to it. Although the House Republicans until 2014 had been pretty good. 2014 they have sucked almost as badly as the Democrats.
Buddhism is not a religion...There is no God as part of it.
