Obama Naug

Watching the inauguration, I couldn’t help but notice that Christian symbolism was everywhere. Given the attempt over the past four decades or so to cleanse the public square of everything remotely Christian–Christmas trees, creches, Bibles, posters, etc., it was quite refreshing to hear so many prayers and so many people mentioning God.

A lot of it was from the Civil Rights oldsters who turned out. People forget that the Civil Rights Movement was begun and nurtured by Christians. More than anything it was in the way events were framed and discussed.
