It’s an Obama world.

Myrlie Evers-Williams (News One)

For the first time ever Barack Obama will use a lay person and not a clergy member to deliver the benediction at the 2013 Inauguration.
The Washington Post reported:

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.

In a statement released by the inaugural committee, the president said the careers of Evers-Williams and Giglio “reflect the ideals that the Vice President and I continue to pursue for all Americans – justice, equality and opportunity.”

  1. So what? Race bait much?

  2. They need to offer obama phones and obama money to attend the inauguration. So, i guess the recovery is not working because folks can’t attend his coronation II. LOL!

  3. I have no problem with this. But I wonder why the big O did not call on MLK’s niece to do the prayer…oh yeah she does not believe in killing babies.

  4. Granted–this is a small thing. But it is indicative of a thought process(of which we’ve seen many indicative actions/words.) Big(and bad) change starts very small. More equality blabber–

  5. *Puke*

  6. The contrasting choice of speakers are typical of a president who has walked a sometimes complicated path when it comes to religion…

    It’s rather comical to watch the Post skirting around the issue, trying to avoid stating the obvious in so many words.

  7. Cool!

  8. I keep waiting for lincoln’s widow to post something that shows she has just a hint of intellect. I guess it’s going to be a long wait.

    I do have a question for the idiot. Just what gives you any indication this is about race? Seems to me, you libs are the ones who can’t seem to put race aside and just let the individual stand on his/her own merits. Now, who would be the racist?

  9. oh yeah she does not believe in killing babies.

    I don’t believe human sacrifice is on the list of inaugural events.

  10. Commies are Atheists or, more precisely, the state is their god. Having completed his first term, securing a second term, and with the transformation of America right on schedule as planned, he’s feeling secure, relaxed enough to drop the facade and show his true Commie color (red, of course).

  11. Obama does these sorts of things to make Social Conservatives mad. It’s part of his pitting the RINOs against the Conservatives. The strategy seems to be effective.

  12. No that Obama is our King…..I wouldn’t be surprised if he showed up for the event dressed in full Arab Garb….and Michelle in the traditional swahili head dress.

  13. @ Sasja #8: We should expect no more from a woman whose mental health plummeted from severely depressed to delusional upon the death of her husband.

  14. The biggest problem here, and one that some seem to miss, is that Obama as the most powerful man on the planet should have the compassion, understanding and belief system that he also answers to a higher power – that he is not omnipotent.

    The biggest problem I have seen with Obama, and trust me there are thousands, is that he and his supporters think he is a deity. He’s a friggin’ moral, and that’s apparent by the mistakes he makes on a minute by minute basis.

    It’s that kind of thinking that led to the Second World War.

  15. GET READY TO BE LECTURED! (this means us whiteys!)

  16. Exactly #11; communism is Obama’s God. That’s what they worship. All that is important to these liberals is their politics, not their souls.

  17. #17

    Nail. Head.

  18. Of course; and its the gist of clergies message anyway. Your Protestant churches were transformed by the Countercultures call to Marxist/Bakuninist social justice… As they were burning the houses, business’s, Government buildings, and other institutions, you said: quick pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964; before they burn the Church.
