I chose to write about Hinduism because this religion has always peeked my interest because the remind me of the Romans the way they worship God's. They also believe in karma heavily which is very interesting because karma is something that i believe in i feel that there is a consequence to every choice.

There acceptance in to society has been a rough one because they are normally are stereotypically always the first blamed for any sort terrorist attacks especially after the whole 911 thing. I believe that life for all of the kind is rough because America is not a very nice place. They have influenced America with stone of there traditions such as smoking flavored tobacco out of a hooka pipe. This has caught on in America like wild fire. This craze has opened clubs just to relax just like a coffee shop these teens love it. I think this craze is the cause behind the spice epidemic.

There culture is always treated like terrorist every where they go whether it be a grocery store or airport.

Even our government participates in racism ex.David Williams, Kentucky's GOP nominee for governor, may have finally found the elusive political silver bullet.

With Kentucky's gubernatorial election only days away, his Keystone-Cops, revolving-door campaign team flailing, most recent polls showing him running around 30 points behind the incumbent Governor Steve Beshear, and even former partisan allies publicly declaring the race over, the State Senate President has hit upon a new campaign theme that might just bring him a stunning, surprise victory:

You guessed it: Anti-Hinduism!

It turns out that Williams' previous anti-gay slurs (he termed homosexuality "aberrant behavior") had garnered no traction, nor did a prominent supporter's attempt to link the Democrats' Jewish Lt. Governor nominee to an international Zionist conspiracy involving George Soros, Barbra Stresiand and Steven Spielberg (a statement that Williams, to his credit, disavowed).

But when it was revealed that Governor Beshear dared to participate in a traditional Indian ground-blessing ceremony for a new India-owned, 250-American-jobs-creating, manufacturing plant in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, Williams pounced on the issue that could revolutionize American attack politics:

"He's there participating with Hindu priests, participating in a religious ceremony," Williams said during a campaign stop in Shelbyville. "He's sitting down there with his legs crossed, participating in Hindu prayers with a dot on his forehead with incense burning around him. I don't know what the man was thinking...If I'm a Christian, I don't participate in Jewish prayers. I'm glad they do that. I don't participate in Hindu prayers. I don't participate in Muslim prayers. I don't do that...To get down and get involved and participate in prayers to these polytheistic situations, where you have these Hindu gods that they are praying to, doesn't appear to me to be in line with what a governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky ought to be doing."

(Brief digression: On behalf of all Jewish Kentuckians, I express our deep gratitude to Williams for sanctioning our worship, and assure him that we won't force him to join us in those prayers that he finds offensive...OK, back to the Senate President:)

Williams said he was not showing disrespect to Hindus with his comments. "I think you disrespect other people's religion when you go down there," he said. He said he has visited countries that had Hindu ceremonies but declined to participate. "That would be idolatry," he said.

Of course, the liberul establishment's response to Williams' bold statements -- his campaign theme is "Bold ideas. True leadership" -- predictably has been negative. Larry J. Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics claimed that Williams' comments show that "he's frustrated because he's so far behind" in the race for governor, "He's got to roll the dice now, so he is bringing up religion."
