President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony is going to be blessed by the presence of a group of religious leaders much bigger in number than any time before in American history. Sources have revealed the list of religious leaders who will be blessing the new president of the U.S.A., and it includes pastors and priests from a diverse range of religions and sects…but noticeably, none from Islam.
Washington Post Six prominent clergy members — including a Catholic cardinal, black and Hispanic Protestant leaders and a rabbi — will pray at Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The inaugural committee told The Post on Wednesday that Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Rev. Franklin Graham, Rabbi Marvin Hier, Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez and Pastor Paula White will all give readings at the ceremony.Trump chose more clergy than his predecessors, who since 1989 have picked just one or two people to pray at their inaugurations.
The music at Trump’s inauguration will also have a religious flavor: The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, known for its patriotic music at several previous inaugurations and other national events, will sing in the ceremony.
