    Christian, except for the Catholic, the rabbi and the heretical female prosperity preacher. Franklin and Rodriguez are actual evangelicals. Jackson is another prosperity preacher but he doesn't seem as bad as Paula White.

    I personally think this is awesome! However it is our responsibility to pray for the leaders of our country every single day, not just when one is being sworn in or when our nation is in trouble
    I choose to honor God by inspiring people. How do you honor him?........

    Hmm.............that FIRST IN HISTORY part causes me to pause and ponder........hmm.......so, no other Pastor/Preacher has EVER been present during an Inauguration? Hmm........

    Methinks Billy Graham may disagree just a wee bit

    He can have as many religious leaders as he likes. Most of the world is concerned as to what he is going to do once he is in office and in control of the biggest Nuclear Arsenal in the world. Its like giving a Kid the keys to a Firework factory

    It sounds puffed up as In look at me.

    The people tried to make JESUS King but something about a person planning the first christian Inauguration IMO sounds prideful and not a gentle and quite spirit.
    IF you do not realize that the rebirth took place in your spirit then it can be confusing to your mind worshiping GOD standing in front of a physical mirror.

    A rather judging comment dont you think? Do you know his intent? Comparing Christ to the leader of a country is a little unbalanced wouldn't you say?

    seed_time_harvest,

    This is just a silly attack.
    - Would it be better if he tried NOT to have a Christian inauguration?
    - Is there any way to NOT say "look at me" when the whole world is televising your inauguration?


    I support your right to free speech, and your right to deconstruct whatever Trump does that you don't like.
    But you need to try harder.
    Here, let me help you.

    Better Criticisms of the Inauguration:

    1. A lot of the ministers are not Christian, or not orthodox.
    2. It's costing too much money (though it's still about on par with Obama).
    3. He's just trying to make a statement to upset liberals, most of whom are non-religious (likely).
    4. He's just trying to make a statement to his constituents (of course).
    5. This minister (insert name here) said something horrible once.
    6. He wife will show up wearing something attractive, and this will immediately incense everyone who dislikes her, who will be forced, against their own will, to recount all the bad things she's ever done. She should never show up in public looking attractive.
    6. His grown children will either show up or not show up, and either situation will obviously be controversial... duh.
    7. Trump's own appearance at the inauguration will trigger all the snowflakes, and they shouldn't have to actually see him with their own eyes.
    8. He will post something on twitter during the day, which will obviously be beneath the office of the President, and will bring much deserved ridicule.
    9. His hair is still an abomination.

    In some cases, consider yourself fortunate. This is not exactly what I would call a Christian lineup. LOL

    I don't think Trump will offer any of those things you mentioned.

    I know,I know,give him a chance already,he hasn't even been Inaugurated yet.

    I understand.
