Franklin Graham? We are prayin’ fer ye.

o-franklin-graham-facebookThe president-elect has invited Franklin Graham, who has called Islam “wicked” and “evil.” He will be leading a prayer during Trump’s Inauguration Day. The Center for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has asked that Graham be dropped from the roster.

Here are the other main religious leaders who will pray with Mr. Trump on Inauguration Day. I can see where this would be a tough call. Can you, in fact, refuse to pray with someone?

  1. Depends on the prayer I would imagine. And the someone.
    I doubt Rev. Frankie will be uttering the imprecatory prayer employed by some Christian leaders, (and at least one Senator), during the Obama Administration: “Let his days be few, and let another have his office.”

    And it would depend on whether you’re a Christian.
    Or an atheist. I don’t pray. And I’ve declined, (“refused” sounds a little harsh), the invitation to prayer countless times.
    Or it would depend on whether or not your a citizen concerned that public prayer at State functions comes perilously close to an establishment of a State sponsored religion. The kind of thing that makes people of differing faiths nervous. Like Muslims in America. (Noticeably absent from the list of approved clerics.) Or…again…atheists just about everywhere.

    But praying along with Rev. Frankie at the inaugural, (I wonder if he’ll be carrying his gun?), isn’t compulsory. So I think there’s plenty of rationalization to decline the opportunity.

  2. I hope the talking heads take note of Graham’s bigotry in his own words. I’d be happy if Pat Robertson was on the program. Let’s lay it out there for all to see.

    And Dolan. He could teach Trump a thing or two about protecting your assets from sexual abuse claims.
