Praying at the inaugural service: An imam, a rabbi, a Hindu priest and an abundance of pastors

From The Washington Post-

The morning after he becomes president of the United States, Donald Trump will hear prayers at Washington National Cathedral from more than two-dozen spiritual leaders of a wide variety of faiths.

The National Prayer Service, an inauguration tradition that has come to include clergy from many religions, will this year feature representatives of the Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh, Baha’i, Navajo, Mormon, Greek Orthodox and many other faiths.

Some of the clergy, all of whom were announced as participants on Thursday, supported Trump during his campaign for president, such as prosperity gospel preachers Bishop Harry Jackson of Maryland and the Rev. Darrell Scott of Ohio.
