As Barack Obama and Joe Biden are praying at St. John’s Episcopal Church, let’s ponder this: what happens if/when the country elects a president or vice president who is not a Christian? Will he/she feel compelled to appear at this church on the morning of his/her inauguration?
Barack Obama is the first African-American elected president, and that is without a doubt a monumental first. But we still have plenty of firsts to go.
And we still have never elected a non-Christian to the White House. And while we are at it, just one Catholic has ever been president (John F. Kennedy.) And Joe Biden will be our very first Catholic vice president.
What if Mitt Romney had won? Where would he be praying this morning? Just some interesting stuff to think about.
