No New Testament reading?

The religious leaders and the interfaith gathering read from a diverse list of religious texts, but there's nothing from the New Testament.

The leaders read from the Torah (Gen. 45 and 48), Metta Sutra, the Qur'an, and the New American Bible (Isaiah 58).


An important -- and very telling -- observation you made, Ms. Pulliam. Thanks for your sharp eye. Keep up the good reporting.

WHAT? Nothing from the Bhagavad Gita? The Book of Mormon? Science and Health? Dianetics? Oh, I'm hurt, hurt. How COULD they forget that OUR religion is oh so SPECIAL? I mean, of course, the Avestas of OUR faith - the TRUE faith - how can Zoroaster BLESS us if we FORGET him?

And what about that surprises us?

The New Testament is not politically correct. It is offensive, divisive, exclusive and Truth, all of which make it unacceptable for the 'lets-all-feel-good-about-all-roads-leading-to-god' rally.
Might inadvertantly mention that no-one comes to the Father except by Christ, oops, sorry, I probably offended you.
But then what do we expect?
