My friend Herky has posted a video about a suggested prayer for the inauguration. Although he’s not saying what his prayer will be, I’m sure you won’t hear it from Rick Warren.
And Bishop Gene Robinson, the vocal gay activist from New Hampshire, has already told us about his prayer:
Robinson doesn’t yet know what he’ll say, but he knows he won’t use a Bible.
“While that is a holy and sacred text to me, it is not for many Americans,” Robinson said. “I will be careful not to be especially Christian in my prayer. This is a prayer for the whole nation.”
I would expect nothing different from Robinson, but every time I hear a “Christian” watering down a prayer so that it won’t offend any people, I wonder why they’re not more concerned about offending Jesus.
I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven.
But whoever denies Me before men,
I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.
So If you want to join me in being politically incorrect, go watch the video, and we can pray together.
