Lord's prayer? Yeah, I'm sure every Hindu mother in the world wants their children saying the Christian, Lord's Prayer every day.
Well, when Hindu people had come to the United States, they should have expected to have to embrace our culture and way of life, just like we would have to embrace theirs if we entered their country. The Hindu people have their own culture, and we have ours. But we can't be expected to break our culture just because of their presence. No one said they had to come here. That was their choice and in accepting the decision to come to this country, they accepted the decision to be a part of this country, and be a part of its culture and way of life.
