    Not familiar with this person.

    She's a lunatic IMO.

    Having said that, I don't care who he (or any other President) asks to say the prayer.

    Many of the same people were upset when Rick Warren attended President Obama's first inauguration.

    No big deal unless the preacher is known for preaching hate or other such controversial speach.

    I didn't know they ever were all that happy with him. It always seemed like something of a reluctant coalition because Mr. Trump was preferable to the alternative in the general election.

    I'll sign on to the proposition that prosperity gospel is extremely problematic and wouldn't ask her to speak in my living room, much less something like this... but I've yet to have a politician call me up and ask me my opinion on such things. So I can't get all that worked up.

    I have no idea who she is. I can only assume that my email I sent Mr. Trump last month requesting to to pray for some reason was lost in transit. Or I'm just not important or famous enough. I'll go with lost in transit.

    Evangelicals were not voting for Trump as much as they were voting against Hillary. I believe most of them figured out long ago that Trump is not the most religious or spiritual person in the world. He always sounds awkward when he tries to dabble in religious dialogue. Remember when he was quoting something in Corinthians in one of his campaign stops and said "Two Corinthians" instead of Second Corinthians.

    He was probably thinking about the old joke...."Two Corinthians walked into a bazaar and......"

    A whole lot of people who voted for President-Elect Trump aren't going to be happy with him.

    Which is fine by me.

    BTW, I watch probably more TBN than anyone on here. The prosperity gospel dominates the network. I am familiar with Ms White. I don't know why anyone should be surprised that the President-Elect would choose a prosperity preacher for his inaugural. There are lots of things evangelicals are gonna dislike about this man. He is (MUCH)less evangelical than I am.
