Obama Picks Non-Clergy Member To Deliver Inauguration Prayer For First Time In Histor
Obama Picks Non-Clergy Member To Deliver Inauguration Prayer For First Time In History…
But don’t worry, according to the MSM he’s totally a “devout Christian” or something.
Via WaPo:President Obama has picked Myrlie Evers-Williams, widow of slain civil rights icon Medgar Evers, to deliver the invocation at his public swearing-in later this month. It is believed to be the first time a woman, and a layperson rather than a clergy member, has been chosen to deliver what may be America’s most prominent public prayer.
The inaugural committee Tuesday plans to announce that the benediction will be given by conservative evangelical pastor Louie Giglio, founder of the student-focused Passion Conferences, which draw tens of thousands of people to events around the world.
The contrasting choice of speakers are typical of a president who has walked a sometimes complicated path when it comes to religion — working to be inclusive to the point that critics at times have questioned his faith.
