Oh great! As soon as I post my objections to prayers at the presidential innauguration, I see an article about the General Minister of my own denomination, The Christian Church, Disciples of Christ, Sharon Watkins, preaching at the National Prayer Service at the National Cathedral on January 21. Granted it is in a church, but nonetheless is the type of Civil Religion that I was decrying below.
Ugh. . . there goes my future in denominational politics.
