Come to Jeebus, Hindus

This is pretty funny. David Williams, Republican candidate for governor in Kentucky, has been criticizing Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear for participating in a Hindu ceremony:
This past Friday, Beshear attended a groundbreaking ceremony in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, for a new factory run by FlexFilm, a company based in India that makes materials for packaging, printing, insulation and other purposes. The plant represents a $180 million investment, and is expected to create 250 jobs in Kentucky.

The groundbreaking included a Hindu ceremony, the bhoomi poojan, which was covered by a local paper. On Tuesday, Williams attacked Beshear’s participation in the ceremony as “idolatry.” and “prayers to false gods.”

Now, however, Williams has explained that he wasn't criticizing Hindus, but only inviting them to "love and know Jesus"! Heh, heh. Hilarious, isn't it?

Or it would be if Williams was a missionary and not a serious candidate for high political office in America. Given that, it's just rather sad - and more than a little scary.
