I just turned on the inauguration (I know, I'm a glutton for punishment) because I want to hear Trump stammer through his 50 word vocabulary speech. As it came on, a Christian minister was praying. When he finished, a second Christian minister said a second prayer, in Jesus' name.
HOW THE HELL IS THIS APPROPRIATE?
We're a secular nation with thousands of different religions, including non-belief. They didn't have a Hindu, Jewish or Muslim invocation. Why do we separate people out like this? It should be an entirely civic ceremony. If you want to invoke your religion, do it in your home or church.
We don't need this nonsense in our civic ceremonies.
