    be a day for everyone - to the extent that that is possible.

    I don't think you have to have a gay preacher - you just have to have a preacher who doesn't hate gay people or think that they are bad the way "god" made them.

    I don't think you have to have a woman preacher - you just have to have a preacher who doesn't hate women and or think that they are bad the way "god" made them.

    Same should be said for every racial group in America.

    Raising the bar a bit a person who is a fan of humanity and who doesn't rely on hateful speech to promote their religion would be the ideal person for this event.

    The Inauguration is a day on which we as Americans come together to support this country and honor our democratic process.  We have non-violent revolutions each year - in a Presidential year the revolutions are often the most revolutionary.

    The majority of Americans voted for an inclusive agenda. The majority of Americans rejected the largely anti-gay, anti-women, anti-hispanic, anti-black and pro-rape (amazing that I can even say that) that the Republican Party put forth.

    Seems to me that our Party has an obligation to represent the most positive view of humanity at this event and resist the temptations of spite or provocation.  

    Just find someone nice who knows scripture (or whatever) and who doesn't use hateful rhetoric as a tool to advance their religious cause - someone who uses encouragement and inspires people through positive imagery and ideals.
