The leaders of Christian Right groups and a US Congressperson have made their mark on Barack Obama‘s inauguration ceremony:
Congressman Paul Broun (pronounced BROWN) of Georgia joined the Reverends Rob Schenck (pronounced SHANK) of Faith and Action and Patrick J. Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition, both based in Washington, DC, in a prayer service inside the US Capitol today that included anointing the doorway President-Elect Barack Obama will pass through on his way to the platform to be sworn in as the 44th president of the United States on January 20.
There’s even a video of them in action:
By the way, Congressperson Broun is on the Committee on Science and Technology in the House.
Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, no? (Makes you feel something, though, yes?)
Maybe I’ll stop by that door this weekend in DC and un-anoint it with sawdust and paint thinner.
