    Sure is A LOT of talk about Jesus and the lord today. Trump hasn't pretended to pray this much since...well, ever.

    I thought lightening might strike him. But g-d crying on/over him was sufficient.

    Because god has never been mentioned before at an inauguration. Give me a break please.

    I'd rather have a president who doesn't go to church than a president that spends 20 years under the teaching of racist hate monger Rev. Wright.

    So whats the point of the thread? Clearly you don't understand what the separation of church and state is.

    I do, I just used it for the title of this thread, ironically. Sorry that it went over your head.

    You didn't ask a question so there is nothing to deflect. Every inauguration has a litany of empty words from spotlight preacher.

    If only the left were as full of love and tolerance as the right.

    I'm religious, but it is sad that's Trump has to hide his atheism to be president. Although it is even more sad that enough religious people fell for his pretending to convert after having been openly atheist before.

    I don't care what he is as long as he can unscrew America.

    Separation of church and state simply means you are free to worship in any way that meets the rest of the laws of the country, and no religion will be mandated by law. The rituals around the swearing in of the President are just that, rituals. They don't hurt anyone and continue a tradition.

    Get your panties out of a wad and relax.

    I could care less about his religious persuasion. As long as he does what is needed I am okay with it.

    So if a Muslim were to be elected president would you be ok with there being Islamic prayers offered at the inauguration?

    Ha some dope friend of mine just shared a meme on Facebook which basically implies that this is the first time in the history of the world the word "God" was used at an inauguration. Obama used it 6 times in his first inaugural speech, and 5 in his second...both times more than the 4 times Trump used it. People will complain about anything, even if it means they must completely ignore history and logic.

    I was actually thinking that if it was HRC I'm not sure they'd have any of that talk... not sure though.
