Sheryl Nuxoll's anti-Hindu remarks

Staff Pick

The Idaho Senate opened its March 3 proceedings with a Hindu prayer from guest chaplain Rajan Zed. Outside the chamber, a handful of senators stood outside in protest, including Cottonwood Republican Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll, who later told the press Hinduism is a "false faith with false gods." Nuxoll's remark spurred anger in some, including Zed, who asked the senator to issue an apology for her remarks. She didn't, proving yet again there are a few depths left to which Idaho lawmakers might sink.
