When Donald Trump is inaugurated on Friday, it won’t just be all about him. It’s also going to be about God.
“Since the first inaugural ceremony, our leaders have paid tribute to the blessings of liberty that have been bestowed upon our country and its people,” said Tom Barrack, chairman of the Presidential Inaugural Committee. “I am pleased to announce that a diverse set of faith leaders will offer readings and prayers at the swearing-in of President-elect Trump and honor the vital role religious faith plays in our multicultural, vibrant nation.”
The highest profile names are the Rev. Franklin Graham — son of Billy Graham and an outspoken defender of Christianity — and Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York.
Hispanic evangelical Samuel Rodriguez, Rabbi Marvin Hier, Pastor Paula White and Bishop Wayne T. Jackson will also be among those praying for the new president. Notable was the fact that Hier will be the first rabbi to take part in an inauguration since Ronald Reagan’s second inauguration in 1985.
Jackson, the African-American pastor of Great Faith Ministries International in Detroit, says that he’d experienced hate from the left for his decision to pray for Trump at the inaugural ceremony.
“Some are very, very strong in their emotions about me doing this,” Jackson told TMZ. “I’ve been called a sell-out.”
However, the pastor is standing firm in his decision to pray for Trump.
“My job is a job to represent, first of all, the Bible, the followings and the teachings of Jesus Christ,” Jackson said. “It’s not about Democrats. It’s not about Republicans. It’s about making sure that I do what Jesus says. And that is that we’re supposed to love everyone. That’s the message Jesus brought.
“And my position as a minister to be asked to pray at the highest ceremony of our country — it gets no higher than that — I do what I do because I’m called to do it.”
Now, ask yourself this question: Is religion really this important to the modern Democrat Party? Trump is replacing President Barack Obama, a man who left the word “Christmas” off his final White House Christmas cards. How about Hillary Clinton? Yeah, right.
This is why Christians voted in large numbers for Donald Trump. It’s a fantastic move, and one we hope we’ll see continue after Trump is in the White House.
