Missing from the Inaugural Dais: Rabbis and Priests
Inauguration audiences on Tuesday will hear the new President deliver the most anticipated Inaugural Address since John F. Kennedy. They'll hear the Queen of Soul sing and Yo-Yo Ma play. They'll listen to hear if Rick Warren gets preachy when he prays. But there's one thing they won't hear: Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech ha'olam.

That's because for the sixth straight presidential Inauguration, rabbis won't have a place on the dais. And the Jewish faith isn't the only religious tradition that continues to be snubbed. Since 1985, only Evangelical Protestants have played a part in the swearing-in ceremony. That will continue again this year when megachurch pastor Warren delivers the invocation and the Rev. Joseph Lowery, an African-American Evangelical, offers the benediction. At a time when the United States is more religiously diverse than at any other point in its history, and Obama's entire ...

Dear DJC49,

I think you may have misunderstood... Pres. Bush is the one who Jim meant appeared to be embarrassed by the black pastor's presentation of the Gospel.

What's this???

A black minister "sneaks in the Gospel" message during Dubya's 1st inaugural ceremonies ... and it's an EMBARRASSMENT???

Where in the world are you coming from, Mr. Lincoln?

You should have been doing backflips!

What you don't like what a theocrat had to say about Islam! It almost makes a good signature line. Almost as good as, "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Your repeated citation of Paleologos is getting a bit old by now, Jim.

"Franklin D. Roosevelt first introduced the tradition of an Inaugural prayer. Up until then, presidential Inaugurations did not include prayers."

Aha! So there's yet another innovation to blame "That Man" FDR for, & on account of RC priests at that. A good way to neutralize potential opposition is to offer some of the limelight to their leaders, & vain clergymen, who like Diotrephes, love to have the preeminence, are easy dupes.

Ah, but Ricky isn't an Evangelical Protestant. Ricky can say he has done just the opposite of the following,
2 Corinthians 4:2
2 but we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by the manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
or,
Titus 1:11
11 whose mouths must be stopped; men who overthrow whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.

If Ricky is the only one there representing conservative then there are no ministers of Christianity there at all.
Oh, and I hope it is remembered as His Unholiness was good enough to point out,

Emperor Manual II Paleologos of the Byzantine Empire wrote:
Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.
